Ronda Rousey spoke about her 'bad ass' body type prior to UFC 190, ultimately popularizing the term 'Do Nothing Bitch' or DNB as the bantamweight champ calls it. It's grown as a term for women's body image issues, but it has also been used in slightly different ways.

Rose Namajunas, who during TUF was also seen as a potential face of the new 115 lb women's division, spoke about this 'DNB craze'.

"To this whole DNB craze I don't care if you do something or do nothing, just don't be a bitch," Namajunas said on Instagram. "Let's be nice and not judge other lifestyles... or don't and just be an unhappy person over there. lol"

The #3 ranked strawweight fighter also made it clear that she has nothing against Ronda herself.

"And as far as Ronda goes I love her and what she's done but I think her message is misinterpreted," she stated, explaining more after her initial post. "I don't think hurting and punching people in the face for millions is any better than using sex to make millions."

"I like the positive message about body image though, just think people are taking it the wrong way. Some of the coolest people I've met are strippers and down to earth loving people so just don't judge others is my point."

"I wouldn't encourage any particular lifestyle. I don't even encourage fighting as a lifestyle," Rose states. "But I do encourage free will and be whatever you want to be. If it's a stripper so be it, especially if it's by choice and not just cause you need the money but because you have a passion for it."

"Go make that money girl if that's what you so choose, but if you wanna be a doctor too that's awesome! Both make people feel better. lol"
