Already far and away the most transcendent athlete in all of MMA, Ronda Rousey is well on her way to entrenching herself in the UFC record books.
Since beginning her professional career in March of 2011, the 28-year-old has already reeled off 12 victories in 12 fights. Under the UFC banner, she is 6-0 and will look to extend her winning streak at UFC 193 against Holly Holm.
Post-UFC 193 Update: Well, make it 12-1 for Rousey. Holm shocked the world with a perfect performance to become the new bantamweight champion at UFC 193. She dominated Rousey for most of the fight before knocking her out early in the second round. You can watch the unbelievable finish here:
All six of her UFC victories have come via stoppage (three submission, three knockouts), and five of those have come in the first round. Her average fight length is just under three minutes (179.5 seconds), and her fastest win came in 14 seconds against Cat Zingano at UFC 184:
Pure and utter domination.
For the record of most consecutive UFC wins, Rousey still has a ways to go to catch Anderson Silva, who reeled off 16 in a row between 2006 and 2012. She is, however, closer to Silva’s record of consecutive title defenses (10) with six. She’s also only three away from Jon Jones for most title-bout victories without a loss (nine).
With the unheralded dominance she has shown thus far, Rousey’s run on the record books likely comes down to how long she is willing to keep fighting. She has said she only wants to fight for three more years, and at her current pace, that would get her to 14 UFC fights.
But that’s all just speculation. For now, it’s best to just sit back, relax and enjoy watching Rousey obliterate the competition in unprecedented fashion.
