Someone has to be best in the world. Why not you?” -Ronda Rousey

Since she is a decorated judoka. Rousey typically grounds an opponent with hip throws and sweeps, then seeks to finish with strikes or submissions.

She made her mixed martial arts debut as an amateur in 2010. In November 2012, Rousey had become the first female fighter to sign with the UFC.

Ronda won the fight against Liz Carmouche in the first round with her signature armbar. She became the first UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.

Rousey won 12 consecutive MMA fights, six in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), before suffering her first loss to Holly Holm in November 2015.

After seven title defenses (Liz Carmouche in UFC 157, Miesha Tate in UFC 168, Sara McMann UFC 170, Alexis Davis UFC 175, Cat Zingano UFC 184, Bethe Correia in UFC 190), Rousey faced Holly Holm in the main event at UFC 193 on November 15, 2015. Despite being a heavy betting favorite, early in the second round, Holm knocked Rousey out with punches to the face after a high kick to the neck, ending Rousey’s three-year reign as champion.
