The undefeated UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion is a fighter in and out of the ring.

Ronda Rousey, who was just picked to be Carl's Jr.'s new spokesperson, has swiftly won over America with her raw talent, body confidence and personality – yet the badass boxing babe still has to deal with online bullies who criticize her athletic frame for being too masculine.

Fortunately, Rousey can shoot down the haters as quickly as she beat her UFC challenger Bethe Correia. (That took 34 seconds, for the record.) On Monday, she posted a sexy Instagram of herself rocking a crop top (oh, hey, belly button piercing!) and short shorts, clutching a hot dog. Because what's a sporting event without some snacks?

"That moment when you realize life is great and you can eat all the hotdogs you want!" Rousey captioned the post, while at a soccer game in Rio with her family. "Had a blast at my first soccer game with my family yesterday!!"





The athlete, who has appeared on the big screen in Entourage and Furious 7, recently opened up to Cosmopolitan.com about her struggles with body image, adding that she felt at her "strongest" and "most beautiful" at 150 lbs., rather than her fighting weight of 135 lbs.

"I grew up thinking that because my body type was common [i.e., athletic], it was a bad thing," she said in the interview. "Now that I'm older, I've really begun to realize that my body has developed for a purpose and not just to be looked at."
