Full Ronda Rousey 'All Access' Video From Showtime, Episode One

In cased you missed any or all of it last night (Aug. 8, 2012), here is the first episode of the "All Access" behind-the-scenes look at Strikeforce 135-pound female champion Ronda Rousey.

The San Jose, Calif.,-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion and the Showtime premium cable channel collaborated on the half-hour special, which follows "Rowdy" as she prepares to defend her title against Sarah Kaufman at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, Calif., on Aug. 18, 2012.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who in the past has frowned upon female fights, opens up the series with some glowing praise, fresh on the heels of wearing a Rousey t-shirt at the recent UFC on Fox 4: "Shogun vs. Vera" weigh in event. In fact, he contributes often throughout the entire first episode, which also digs deep into the heavy promotional work that now falls on Rousey's broad shoulders, including photo shoots, interviews, appearances and much more.

Gina Carano makes a cameo, as well as Miesha Tate, who Rousey defeated earlier this year via limp-popping armbar to burst onto the scene.

Enjoy.

Episode two of Ronda Rousey: "All Access" is scheduled to debut on Showtime next Wednesday (Aug. 16, 2012) at 9:30 p.m. ET. To get up to speed on the reaction to episode one of Ronda Rousey: "All Access" click here.
