She won 13 straight bouts and helped establish UFC as a global brand before fellow American Holly Holm knocked her out in 2015.

Rousey has also tried her hand at WWE wrestling and appeared in action movies, including “Expendables 3" and “Furious 7". She took the SummerSlam title from Alexa Bliss but could only hold it for eight months before being knocked over by Becky Lynch in a triple threat match. This was her last appearance with the WWE, owing to her pregnancy.
