Has there ever been a woman in recorded history with a comparable resume? Steffi Graf had an incredible career but she competed in just 1 sport. Being at the top in 2 sports is much more impressive. I think Ronda is the greatest female athlete ever.



edit: looks like ESPN agrees with me


what the fuck happened to her face?

She literally looks like a complete different person just days after a fight.

She's probably hydrated 10 pounds of water

Yeah I'd say she's probably the best ever. Serena Williams is probably second

there are dozens of other sports where the ladies actually have a real competition going.
well said!

putting RR on top of any other female athlete is a huge insult to the other ladies competing in sports with real competition!

She is 9-0 or 10-0. In boxing it has been not uncommon for contenders, not champions, to be 30-0 before getting a title shot. In combat sports, Muhammed Ali's daughter is above her.
