Ronda Rousey Selected For Sports Illustrated’s Best Of 2012 List

UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was selected No. 65 on Sports Illustrated’s list of memorable sports moments from the past year.

Rousey’s selection was made because, “She’s the biggest rising star in women’s mixed martial arts, if not the sport as a whole,” the article stated.

Rousey joined the likes of LeBron James, Usain Bolt and others on the list. She was also featured in ESPN The Magazine’s The Body Issue and has received numerous awards and made several television spots since exploding on the scene.

As for fighting, Rousey will return to action in February when he defends her belt against Liz Carmouche in the main event of UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche from Anaheim, California.
