Programming alert: Showtime giving you 'All Access' to Ronda Rousey beginning Aug. 8


Have you ever wanted "All Access" to Ronda Rousey, but didn't want the broken arm to go with it?

Here's your chance.

Showtime is bringing you a two-part special with a behind-the-scenes look at the reigning Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion beginning Weds., Aug. 8, 2012 at 9:30 p.m. ET on the cable television network. Episode two airs the following week (Aug. 15) in the same time slot.

From Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Showtime Sports:

"When we were creating the concept of All Access, I felt Ronda was a perfect person to showcase for the fans. Her fiery personality and her drive, coupled with her Olympic background and dominance in women's MMA, was deserving of this type of spotlight. Not only is Ronda a captivating athlete in the cage, but she is attracting a great deal of attention for a relatively young sport. With All Access: Ronda Rousey, viewers will not only get a glimpse into Ronda's life but also into the world of women's MMA."

The "Rowdy" one will make her first championship title defense against former division titleholder Sarah Kaufman at the Strikeforce: "Rousey vs. Kaufman" event on Aug. 18 from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, Calif., live on Showtime.
