    This may be an unpopular opinion but I don't think Honda is bad looking.

    Despite the pics and gifs being thrown around, you can find a fairly ugly photo of almost any fighter, no matter how good looking they are.

    Athletic girls and thin girls can be hot (depicted, after a sort of fashion, in 2 of the 3 covers).

    I just don't get the idea of a "plus sized" girl being hot.

    These covers have sparked a huge debate (most saying they are glad Honda got the boot) and about a 50/50 split on the Ashley Graham (plus size model).

    What do you guys think about this?

    IDK. I just don't get the idea of getting a person being encouraged to feel like it's okay to be unhealthy or to just be completely fine with how you look. That leads to complacency. It's cool to be okay with how you are but also realize there's always room for improvement.

    Ashley Graham really isn't big enough for it to be unhealthy.

    She's definitely big.

    Funny thing is she's supposed to promote the bigger look and even in her muffin top photos while they were debuting the cover, she's holding in her stomach.

    Ashley graham is a big girl but not trully unhealthy. She big boned and can get my big bone any time.

    Never bought SI. Never cared about it. Didn't know it still existed. Having Ronda on the cover seems dumb to me, but they can obviously do whatever they want.

    That about covers my opinion, for whatever it's worth.

    If I were dating her, would my life improve if she lost 15 pounds? Yes, a little bit.

    Is she flirting with diabetes, heart problems, joint problems, back problems, mobility issues...

    Not in the least.

    Is that a photo from the magazine? Her blobs look misshapen and weird.

    I wrote b o o b s 4 times and my spellcheck kept changing it to blobs. Oh, spellcheck, you so funny.

    I don't know....

    Honda says her walk around is about 155 lbs. Ashley Graham (plus size model) is 5'9 and Honda is 5'7.

    I could be wrong, but I would estimate her weight to be at about 185 lbs.

    For a girl, that's pretty big.

    Your computer wasn't correcting the spelling. It was choosing the more appropriate word for you.

    Sherdog will down play the relevance of any company that supports Ronda.

    Nope.

    There's a fare share of sherdoggers that call her cow, whale, etc. though.

    Ok, a little high and thought that standards had jumped exponentially over night.
    They just hate anything about her, when she adds wait when she is not trying they jump all over it as they do everything.

    yeah but you got to take into mind a plus size female model is the size of a average woman.

    it is unhealthy to be focusing on and glamorizing the stick figure models.
