Video: Strikeforce champ Ronda Rousey hosts TMZ (full episode)

Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, who fights Sarah Kaufman on Aug. 18, 2012 in San Diego, California, was the special guest host for a recent edition of TMZ Live, covering the ins and outs of pop culture news and gossip.

It was a match made in heaven.

That's because the "Rowdy" one has been known to speak out on whatever topics she has an opinion on, even if they transcend the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA). Kim Kardashian found that out the hard way. So too, did Olympic medal holder Michael Phelps, though in fairness, he did chew the same dirt as Rousey back at the 2008 summer games.

That's not all.

In her spare time, the Judo juggernaut has also been taking off her clothes for ESPN the Magazine and teaching former Baywatch babe Carmen Electra a few of her patented moves. She has, quite frankly, made the most of her recent success.

But will it prove to be a distraction on fight night?
