Ronda Rousey is great at kicking ass. The UFC’s first and only female bantamweight has become a viral spectacle, especially when sites like Worldstar Hip Hop pick up her bouts and dub her “the female Beast Mode.” No disrespect to Seattle Seahawk, Marshawn Lynch, but Rousey is the first Ronda Rousey.
Equipped with an Olympic medal in judo, the California-bred MMA fighter boasts a career record of 11-0-0 with two knockouts. Beyond the ring, the 28-year-old “Rowdy” has clocked in roles on the big screen from The Expendables 3 to Furious 7 (her fight scene with Michelle Rodriguez in stilettos and gowns redefines “catfight”) and Entourage. Still, the bright Hollywood lights haven’t kept her from throwing ‘bows f’real in the Pentagon. Despite getting called a “sex symbol,” the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue honoree keeps her glamour routine to a minimum and has no problem being herself.
