MMA WeeklyThere’s an old ideology in sports that you shouldn’t engage in sex for a certain amount of time leading up to competition. Some boxers say they abstain from any sex for six weeks leading up to a contest, and the mythology has been studied by different doctors with some supporting the claim and other shooting it down as not backed up by biological fact. For her part, Rousey goes in the opposite direction because she’s a woman. “For girls, it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight, actually. Not with like everybody. I don’t put out like a Craigslist ad or anything, but if I got a steady I’m going to be like ‘yo, fight time’s coming up,’” Rousey said with a laugh.

Since Ronda Rousey came across my cultural radar a couple of weeks ago, I’ve kind of gone back & forth on her.  She’s like the chameleon Seinfeld dated.  In one picture she looks like Lindsay Vonn and the next she looks like Charlize Theron in “Monster.”  Also, as much as I’ve got a thing for hot women who kick ass, in my  Spank Bank’s personal checking account, she suffers from an unfair comparison to Gina Carano, who looks amazing whether she’s in a cocktail dress or covered in sweat, pus and menstrual blood in the octagon.  But suffice to say Ronda went way, way up in my rankings after this.  A (sometimes) dime piece who admits she loves getting banged repeatedly then beating the snot out of another girl is about the sexiest thing in the world.  Now I just need to fund a study to show that lots of sex with rapidly-aging, drunken, out-of-shape couch potatoes is like a natural steroid and I’m in.  @JerryThornton1
