Ronda began her fighting career in Judo at the age of 11. She became the youngest judoka in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, and then she became the first female U.S. jukoda in nearly 10 years to win an A-Level tournament at the Birmingham World Cup in Great Britain in 2006.
Her Olympic judo career skyrocketed in 2007, having won a silver medal at the World Judo Championships and a gold medal at the 2007 Pan American Games.
In a career highlight, Ronda then became the Olympic bronze medalist at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, making her the first American woman to earn an Olympic medal in judo.
Ronda emerged as one of the most recognizable women in MMA in 2012 when she won the Strikeforce bantamweight title with an armbar submission of Miesha Tate, and then defended it against Sarah Kaufman later that year.

Since making her debut as a UFC ultimate fighter in 2013, she has won nine of her eleven fights by armbar. She was matched against Liz Carmouche at UFC 157 in her first title defense.
Upon making her transition to the UFC, Ronda and Miesha Tate were matched again. Only this time, Tate extended her as far as the third round.
In UFC 171 she earned a 1st Round TKO over Sara McMann. At UFC 175 Ronda won by KO against Alexis Davis in 16 seconds, earning her the distinct honor of the second fastest title defense in UFC history.
When Ronda defeated Cat Zingano in a UFC-record 14 seconds at UFC 184 – again, by armbar – it marked her fifth title defense.
Now well known as “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey, she is recognized as the #1 pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world, #6 on the UFC pound-for-pound fighter rankings.
