Ronda Rousey on her sex symbol status after Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoot (Video)

Ronda Rousey's Sports Illustrated photo shoot made headlines earlier this year and now the UFC champion has been discussing her sex symbol status.

In a follow-up interview with Sports Illustrated, Rousey admitted although she enjoyed donning the cossie for the cameras, she felt like it was a case of playing pretend.

"It’s more like I was playing that role for a day. I don’t feel like that every day," she explained.

Rousey also rules out a full-time career in modelling, despite being grateful for the opportunity to try it out on a part time basis.


"I know it’s not as glamorous as easy as it appears from afar, and I love having the opportunity to dabble in it. But I think doing it full time would be pretty difficult."

It's clear Rousey's foreseeable future lies in the ring.
