Ronda Rousey has been taking part in competitive sport of some kind ever since she was 11-years-old. Originally this took the form of Judo, which carried her all of the way to the Olympic Games. After retiring from Judo at 21, Rousey began a career in mixed-martial arts.
Rousey quickly rose up the ranks and impressed with fights in Strikeforce before becoming the first woman to sign a contract with UFC in 2012. Over the next three years the star enjoyed tremendous success, capturing the Bantamweight Championship and successfully defending it six times. During this period Rousey became the face of women’s MMA and is widely credited with helping launch the sport into the mainstream.
Ronda Rousey’s Unusual Cheat Meal
One thing that seems to fascinate fans is the cheat meals of their favourite athletes. By design, professional athletes in any sport are on a strict diet and carefully structured training program, so what happens when the restrictions are lifted, and all bets are off? For Rousey, that means, or at least it did, a bizarre combination of buffalo wings, blue cheese and hot sauce.
Rousey made the confession in a Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit back in 2015.
“Buffalo wings naked with chunky blue cheese and extra hot sauce on the side.”
After her UFC career ended with back-to-back defeats to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes, Ronda Rousey switched her attention to WWE. Since taking her first steps inside the squared circle Rousey has won the Raw Women’s Title, the Royal Rumble and is the current SmackDown Women’s Champion. She also competed in the first-ever all-female WrestleMania main event at WrestleMania 35.
After losing the SmackDown Women’s crown to Liv Morgan at Money In The Bank, Rousey regained the gold at Extreme Rules, avenging her loss in the process. It has since been confirmed that the self-styled ‘Baddest Woman on the Planet’ will be back in action at Survivor Series where she’ll take on Shotzi.
