Video: Ronda Rousey stars in awesome Carl’s Jr. ad

Ronda Rousey continues to gain fans as part of her pop culture presence. From making appearances in Furious 7, Expendables 3 and Entourage to professing her love for professional wrestling and desire to be in the ring one day, she has gained tons of fans over the last few years; all of this on top of her success as the top women’s mixed martial artist on the planet.

Now, Rousey is doing one more thing that will certainly get a lot more eyes on her.

On Friday, Rousey’s new Carl’s Jr. ad which features the UFC champion chomping down on the new Cinnamon Swirl French Toast Breakfast Sandwich and I never knew that a fast food breakfast could be so hardcore.

Carl’s Jr. and its Eastern brother Hardee’s are known for getting sexy women to promote their food. As the saying goes, sex does indeed sell. Kate Upton and other supermodels have all made appearances in the commercials, so why not get one of the most beautiful, most badass women on the planet to make one?

Rousey was excited about doing the commercial and she talked about her recent body positive comments that she made while filming her most recent movie cameo.

“I grew up thinking that because my body type was common [i.e., athletic], it was a bad thing,” she said in the interview. “Now that I’m older, I’ve really begun to realize that my body has developed for a purpose and not just to be looked at.”

I think Carl’s Jr. is going to be getting a lot of business for their new sandwich. I know I will go try one.
