Armbars and armpits on episode two of Ronda Rousey 'All Access'

They may look tough when the main camera is on, but when it's just the backup camera, well, things are a little different.

Gone are the hard stares, the clenched jaws and the flexing of facial muscles that only appear when you're trying to look tough.

"My left arm pit smells, so I apologize," Sarah Kaufman said.

"You can't smell a video it's all good," Ronda Rousey responded.

That's how the second episode of Showtime's "All Access" with Rousey begins. (It premieres Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m.)

From there, it gets more into the training, which would make sense what with Rousey and Kaufman preparing to fight each other at Strikeforce this Saturday at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego.

Rousey works her judo and grappling with Nick Diaz. Kaufman works on her game at Jackson's MMA in New Mexico.

That's pretty much the standard fare for fighting videos, but the real drama occurs when Rousey sees far too much of herself in the ESPN "The Body Issue" video.
