Ronda Rousey joins elite company on Forbes’ list of “30 Under 30” in sports

Ronda Rousey - StrikeforceBantamweight Ronda Rousey was brought into the UFC based in large part on the unbeaten Olympian’s uncanny ability to draw the public’s attention through both her words and actions. Though her debut in the Octagon won’t take place until this Saturday night at UFC 157, Rousey’s impact on mainstream media is already being felt including a spot on Forbes Magazine’s list of 30 Under 30 in the sporting world.

Other notable names on the list include superstars like LeBron James/Kevin Durant/Dwight Howard (NBA), Robert Griffin III (NFL), Bryce Harper/Mike Trout (MLB), Sidney Crosby (NHL), and gold medalists Usain Bolt/Gabi Douglas.

The 26-year old Rousey is 6-0 thus far in her MMA career with all of her victories involving an opening round Armbar. She also holds wins over former champions Miesha Tate and Sarah Kaufman.
