Ronda Rousey came home a winner once again on Wednesday night. The UFC’s women’s bantamweight champion claimed the title of Best Female Athlete at the 2014 ESPY Awards.
Rousey is the first UFC fighter to win an ESPY award.
Rousey beat out Maya Moore of WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx, Olympic skier Mikaela Shiffrin, and Breanna Stewart of Connecticut’s NCAA champion basketball squad to claim the honor.
A 27-year-old undefeated Olympic medalist in judo, Rousey (10-0) has defended her bantamweight title four consecutive times since propelling the women’s division into the UFC. She knocked out No. 2 ranked Alexis Davis in a mere 16 seconds in her most recent performance.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Rousey were nominated for Best Fighter at the 2014 ESPY Awards, however both fell short to undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather.
UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman was up for the biggest upset, but the Mercer hoops team got the nod for its defeat of Duke in the NCAA Tournament.
