After the clip of Rousey’s “DNB” speech (which you can watch above) went viral on the internet and across the world, stemming from a rant she made during episode two of UFC 190 Embedded, attracting well over one million viewers, high above the average of a general “UFC Embedded” pre-fight preview clip on the official UFC YouTube channel, Rousey decided to capitalize on the movement.

On Thursday, the undisputed Queen of Women’s MMA kept the trend going by sharing the following photo of herself wearing a custom-made t-shirt that reads, “Don’t Be A ‘D.N.B.,'” accompanied by Rousey holding a photo that encourages a social media campaign, as it reads, “Don’t Be A #DNB.”
