Ronda Rousey Reacts To UFC Hall Of Fame Induction

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, may have been chased from the 135-pound division by Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes, but there would be no Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes if not for the trail blazed by “Rowdy.”

Others came before her, like ex-Strikeforce headliner Gina Carano, as well as Japanese sensation Megumii Fuji and regional powerhouse Tara LaRosa, but Rousey was able to bring women’s mixed martial arts (MMA) to the Octagon, where it currently thrives across four different weight classes.

Not surprisingly, the promotion will induct her into the UFC Hall of Fame in July.

“This is an immense honor, to not only take part in bringing women to the forefront of this sport, but now the Hall of Fame,” Rousey wrote on social media. “May I be the first of many.”

After hanging up the gloves in 2017 — which we are not allowed to refer to as “retirement” — Rousey (12-2) crossed over to the world of professional wrestling, inking a longterm deal with WWE and making her WrestleMania debut back in April.

Maybe she can complete the second of these three goals by the end of the year.

Ronda Rousey to Be Inducted Into UFC Hall of Fame

Regardless of whether you loved her or hated her, you can’t deny that Ronda Rousey changed the face of the sport.

When Dana White declared that the UFC would never let women into the Octagon, Rousey broke down the cage door with a superstar persona and an unstoppable armbar. And when the UFC needed stars to light the way as old heroes faded, she assumed the role like she was meant for it.

So of course Rousey is going to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. She deserves it. More so than most, she deserves it.

Here’s the UFC’s official release:

“ROWDY” RONDA ROUSEY MAKES HISTORY
AS FIRST WOMAN SELECTED FOR INDUCTION INTO UFC® HALL OF FAME

Las Vegas – UFC® today announced that former UFC and Strikeforce® women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame’s ‘Modern Wing’ as a member of the class of 2018. The 2018 UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Thursday, July 5, at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The event will be streamed live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS® starting at 7 p.m. PT.

“There would be no women in UFC without Ronda Rousey,” UFC President Dana White said. “Ronda is an absolute pioneer who helped me personally, and a lot of other people, look at women in combat sports differently. She accomplished everything she set out to do with UFC and became a global icon and role model in the process. Today, the women’s divisions are packed with incredibly talented fighters and they produce some of the best fights you’ll ever see. We’re proud to announce Ronda as the first woman to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.”

“This is an immense honor, to not only take part in bringing women to the forefront of this sport, but now the UFC Hall of Fame,” Rousey said. “May I be the first of many.”
