American MMA fighter Rousey confesses she does not have pretty hands and perfect fingers, but is proud of them American Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Ronda Rousey admitted she does not have the prettiest of hands, but is proud of them.
In a video she posted on Instagram, Rousey (30), who was the first American female to win an Olympic medal in 2008, showed her battered and bruised hands to her 9.6 million followers on Tuesday. “I don’t have pretty hands and I’m proud of it. My hands tell my story because they’re not for show, they’re for doing things,” she said.
Rousey, also a former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight champion, revealed she was not ashamed to hide her scars. “I’m much more proud of a nine-stitch scar across my knuckle that I got from bursting a ganglion cyst on somebody’s head, than I would be of perfectly flawless acrylic nails. I have scars on every single part of my hands, for different reason and it’s almost like a scrapbook, like I’m proud of them,” she said.
