According to pro wrestler and WWE hall of famer Roddy Piper, the UFC has hit the jackpot with Ronda Rousey. He pictures the women’s bantamweight champ being the face of the company for years to come.
“For UFC to almost have Ronda as the face of UFC, shows how the world is changing and how things are catching up all the way around,” said Piper on The MMA Hour. “And I think he would be proud to have something as pretty as Ronda as the face of UFC.”
Rousey took part in the first WMMA bout in the UFC’s 20 year history at UFC 157. She remained undefeated with her seventh win to come via armbar in the opening round. Every one of Rousey’s fights have ended that way.
She returns at UFC 168 in a rematch with Miesha Tate. They can currently be seen coaching on The Ultimate Fighter.
UFC 168 is December 28 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The women serve as the co-main event in the final UFC show of the year.
