Ronda Rousey – 14 steps to stardom – part 1

Ronda Rousey is without a doubt the hottest female athlete of recent times. True, she is undefeated in her MMA professional career, but her real claim to fame lies not in the record itself but in the way she had dominated all her opponents, almost all of them with 1st round submissions. So, as they say: “We’re open for submissions”… let’s recap Ronda’s amazing journey with these never-been-seen-before GIFs of her winning moves.
