I first heard about Rousey during the Olympics in 2008, but foolishly didn’t pick up following her career until I saw her in The Expendables; you may already know about my love of Stallone. And so, I started to keep better track.
Of course by now you’re aware of the fact that Ronda Rousey, Judo Olympian and Still Undefeated UFC Champion, beat Brazilian challenger Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds this past Saturday; I’m aware because I spent $60 to watch her do so in real time.
But what I found out about her philanthropy work with mental health organizations made me think of her as a champion of a different kind. And then I learned a little bit about her backstory and became even more impressed.
