Video: Ronda Rousey 'aggressively rubbed' during 'crazy' Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo shoot outtakes

Bro, watch your hands by the championship goods.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was "aggressively rubbed" by the orderly charged with wiping her skin down with make-up. That's one of many "crazy" outtakes from her recent Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo shoot (see the full gallery here).

Spoiler: They're not that crazy.

"The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue wasn't like Playboy or all those others," Rousey told For The Win. "It wasn't so fake and plastic... I purposely tried to get a little bit heavier for the SI issue so I was a little bit curvier and not in top fight shape look but the look at which I feel I'm the most attractive. It's very natural for a person's body to go through seasons."

No complaints here.

Don't expect any curves when she arrives for her UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) main event against Bethe Correia, which takes place on Aug. 1, 2015 inside the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Though as unstoppable as "Rowdy" has looked in recent fights, I'm not sure it would make much of a difference.
