She won't have any problems.
Ronda Rousey (MMA)
Women's mixed martial arts would not be where it is today without Ronda Rousey. Be careful, an ex-boyfriend tried to expose some nude photos of the fighter and she proceeded to beat him repeatedly. The female fighter responded by posing nude for ESPN's Body Issue so people can see her naked on her terms.
