As 2015 rolls on, it’s becoming pretty, pretty clear that Ronda Rousey is the biggest name in the sport, as now the UFC champ has made Fortune’s “40 Under 40″ list.
Not only has Rousey drawn big pay-per-view numbers this past year, but the bantamweight has continued to attract mainstream press and movie roles. Thus, this is why, Fortune placed her #40 in the list, which is the publication’s annual ranking of the most influential, under 40 folks in business.
According to the outlet, Rousey is believed to have earned approximately $5,000,000 this year, and the post also cites her positive influence on women (“Rowdy’s” well documented speech regarding body image has apparently been viewed over 3 million times).
Yup. She’s a huge star, and well deserving of her now iconic status.
Rousey is scheduled to fight Holly Holm at UFC 193 on November 15th next.
