Ronda Rousey was in the SI Swimsuit edition this year. She then was recognized further by Sports Illustrated when they put her on the cover this month of their magazine, titling her the ‘World’s Most Dominant Athlete’, having some question the title.
Being only the second MMA fighter to grace the cover of SI, the UFC wanted to blitz social media to show their support. But word circulating is that they took it a bit too far by asking their athletes to support Rousey by tweeting their congratulations to her.
Knowing this, do you think all of the athletes tweets of support need to be looked at as disingenuous? (full cover after the jump)
Nice to see all those congratulations from Ronda's peers were from the heart. pic.twitter.com/ixA4sB71rz
