Walmart won’t sell the upcoming memoir of Ronda Rousey in stores, but will make it available online.

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but that seems to be exactly what Walmart is doing when it comes to the soon-to-be released memoir from UFC women’s bantamweight champion and Olympic medalist Ronda Rousey.

Yahoo Sports reports that Walmart decided it wasn’t appropriate to showcase the book on store shelves.

Instead, the retailer says it will make My Fight/Your Fight available for pre-order online, with an option for store pick-up.

A spokesperson for Walmart wouldn’t confirm to TMZ that the company found the book “too violent” for public display, but did say that “a variety of factors” played a role in keeping the book off shelves.

The book, which debuts May 12, has reportedly already sold thousands of copies through a variety of book sellers.
