    Click here for a large version of the Best Female Athlete bracket.

    Ronda Rousey remains undefeated. And we're talking beyond the Octagon here.

    The UFC bantamweight champion received 52 percent of the vote to beat Serena Williams in the final of the Best Female Athlete Bracket. More than 13,000 votes were cast in the final matchup.

    Williams, the No. 1 seed, beat Cheryl Miller, the team of Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor, Babe Didrikson Zaharias and Steffi Graf to reach the final.

    Rousey, unseeded, took down Missy Franklin, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Diana Taurasi and Florence Griffith Joyner before topping Williams.

    No one cares about Female athletes.

    People don't overly like Serena because she's a muscular Black Woman who destroys slim White Women. So no surprise she got beat out by Rowdy in a poll.

    Hindsight is 20-20, their is nothing worse than knob jockeys who crawl out after all is said and done and act like they're some superior intellect who had it all figured out all along. Losers.

    Back when this poll happened Ronda was at the height of her fame, she was unbeaten and seemed unstoppable. Of course people voted for her, no one could for tell what would happen in her next 2 fights.

    Serena Williams isn't the best female athlete ever either, not even in tennis.

    Women's tennis had depth on par with WMMA when she dominated. Same with the other dominant mannish female tennis players too, but still.

    Wrong there were plenty of people at the time not caught up in the Ronda hype who realized just how silly it was for Ronda to even be in the conversation for female GOAT. What's happened since proved how right people like myself were.

    So Serena is in the poll but Venus isn't? I guess they thought people couldn't handle 2 Williams at one time.

    The Ronda Rousey sham would never have been possible if it was just the UFC. What really made it work was the mainstream media and feminists helping promote the Ronda sham.
