Walmart won't be carrying the new book from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, because the publication represents her success in mixed martial arts (MMA), which is wayyyyy too violent for the retail giant.

As expected, "Rowdy" doesn't give two shits.

"'Success is the best revenge' [is] one of many lessons I learned from fighting that helped me fight through life's battles off the mat and outside the Octagon," Rousey said on Instagram. "Walmart is welcome to watch the success of this publication from the sidelines if they choose."

Been told.

"My Fight / Your Fight" is scheduled to be released on May 12 and provides an in-depth look at the Olympian's rise to superstardom, as well as the countless struggles she endured along the way. Rousey can also be seen headlining the UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) later this year in Brazil.
