UFC fighter Ronda Rousey had an excellent response to those who say she looks 'masculine'

You tell ‘em, Ronda.

UFC STAR RONDA Rousey has a history of saying what’s on her mind.

A few months ago, she beat Floyd Mayweather to the title of Best Fighter at the ESPYs and quipped, “I wonder how Floyd feels being beaten by a woman for once” — an allusion to allegations of domestic abuse against Mayweather.

Tonight, she steps into the Octagon to defend her Bantamweight title against Brazilian fighter Bethe Correia.

And she’s not holding back.

In a video shot to coincide with the fight, Rousey had this to say to viewers who describe her physique as “masculine”.

Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f***ing millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine. I think it’s femininely badass as f*** because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose, because I’m not a do nothing bitch. It’s not very eloquently said, but it’s to the point and maybe that’s just what I am.

Oh, we think it’s very eloquently said, Ronda.

And it looks like these people do, too.

Go, Ronda, go!
