UFC NEWS: UFC's Ronda Rousey Makes History at ESPY Awards

Congratulations to UFC Fighter Ronda Rousey on winning the ESPY for Best Female Athlete.


The ESPY Awards took place last night, July 16, at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. This annual event that recognizes athletes’ outstanding performances in the United States presented Ronda Rousey with the 2014 Top Female Athlete award, beating out Olympic gold medalist in Slalom Mikaela Shiffrin, UConn college basketball’s Breanna Stewart, and Maya Moore from the WNBA.


By receiving this prestigious accolade, Rousey turns this moment into a historic one, as she became the first, and only, martial artist to be honored at ESPN’s award show, ever.

The UFC women’s undefeated bantamweight champion is already recipient of an Olympic bronze medal in judo and owns a shiny belt, among other awards that she has earned throughout her successful career, but now she is part of history with the top athlete recognition for her impressive run over the last 12 months.

As partner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, the USA Judo family would like to congratulate Ronda Rousey for this honorable and well-deserved recognition.
