Do you remember the story of how Pat Barry couldn't afford any food in preparation for his fight against Antoni Hardonk at UFC 104, and was literally only eating rice and ketchup? Well, UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey notoriously loves to shift a bunch of good old chicken wings after she wins her fights, and even gets a chef flown out to wherever he's needed to make them, as she now revealed in the latest issue of women's lifestyle magazine Self.

"I eat about 50 hot wings," Rousey said. "I love hot wings. After my last fight, one of the UFC owners flew in a private chef from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro so that he could make me hot wings, because there are no hot wings in Rio! That's how important they are to me."

It shows more how important Rousey is to the UFC. In the interview, "Rowdy" also talks about herself betting strangers to beat them up for $10 after school, her body and her curves, and lots more. This is the cover with Rousey on it:
