Ronda Rousey, the face of women's MMA, has already shown a little more skin than that when she appeared in last year's ESPN The Magazine's "The Body" issue, but is making it clear she has ruled out taking it all off for any publications like Playboy. The 26-year-old claims no official offer has been made to the wildly popular UFC Women's champion, but Rousey recently told HBO Real Sports that even a huge payday couldn't get her to doff her clothes for the cameras.
