UFC: Ronda Rousey not offended by Eminem lyrics

Published 4 Comments

Ronda Rousey has said that Eminem's call out on his new album is an 'honor' despite some confusion over what the lyrics mean.

The UFC Bantamweight champion says there's nothing wrong with the song 'Shady XV', the title track to the rapper's new album.

The Detroit rapper is no stranger to controversy but this his lyrics turned heads earlier this week in the MMA world, but not to Rousey.

Was it a compliment or a diss?

The entire verse from 'Shady XV' goes:

"I got a Magic Johnson/ It's like a Magic Wand allows me to not let a blonde arouse me/ If Ronda Rousey was on the couch with the condoms out/ Holding a thousand/ Magnums at once to pounce me/ I'll laugh in response to how she dances and flaunts it around me/ Her flat little badonkadonk is bouncing around/ And all I see is Paulie Malignaggi, she's slaughterhouse in a blouse."

Some people were confused whether the rap was a diss or a compliment towards the Women's champ, but she's taking it in her stride.

"I feel like getting rapped about by Eminem is like getting arm-barred by me," said Rousey on Jimmy Kimmel Live, "It might not be so pleasant if you're on the other side of it, but it's so skillfully done you have to be honored."

"I like being called a slaughterhouse in a blouse," Rousey said. "I think that's cool. I'm not perfect, but parts of me are pretty awesome and I think if Eminem took the ass Pepsi Challenge, he would totally pick me as his favorite." She added.

Mainstream Media Bonus

If anything it should be a compliment for Rousey and the MMA world as it signals their ever growing popularity.

Rousey has already broken ground as a female fighter and now, with a blossoming Hollywood career, is making even more waves in the mainstream media.

WIth her next fight being in Los Angeles on February 28th, against Cat Zingano, then the Hollywood attention has an even bigger benefit.

Situations like this only help her and the UFC, and there hasn't been any issues raised by them regarding the lyrics.
