As well as being a role model to other women athlete who have to overcome stereotypes, Ronda is pretty confident in her own self.

The 29-year old aims to promote a positive body image – and last night, she showed the importance of knowing when to question the media.

Yesterday, Ronda posted a picture to her Instagram account to promote her appearance on The Tonight Show. So fans were pretty surprised when she decided to share the image a second time just a few hours later.

Posting a caption explaining her actions, Ronda wrote:

“I have to make an apology to everyone – I was sent a picture to share on social for Fallon that was altered without me knowing to make my arms look smaller. I won’t say by who – I know it was done with severely misplaced positive intentions – but this goes against everything I believe and I am extremely proud of every inch of my body. And I can assure you all it will never happen again. I could not be more appalled and hope you all forgive me.”
