Mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey placed 42nd in the 2014 edition of Maxim's annual Top 100 list of the most attractive celebrities in the world. This ranking places her between reality star Kendall Jenner and actress Demi Lovato.
Fans consider Rousey one of the most attractive MMA fighters. In 2012, she received attention for comparing herself to fellow fighter Arianny Celeste, known for appearing topless in a 2010 edition of Playboy. Several high-profile athletes, including Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones, commented on Rousey's attractiveness. Some controversy revolves around the idea that part of Rousey's sex appeal stems from her physical dominance.
