Ronda Rousey’s 2014 was a little more Mike Tyson and a little less Royce Gracie. Coming off the longest fight of her career in late 2013, a whopping 11 minutes and 58 seconds of domination over Miesha Tate at UFC 168, Rousey only spent a total of 84 seconds in the cage during her 2014 campaign. It was a throwback to 2011, when she won the inaugural Lady Violence award after winning all of her first four professional fights via the armbar in just 2 minutes and 18 seconds (an average of 34.5 seconds a fight) total.
Rousey scored the first TKO finish of her career in February when she took out fellow Olympian Sara McMann in what would be the second headlining assignment of Rousey’s UFC career. In July, Rousey would once again show us that she is certainly not a one trick pony when we watched her KO Alexis Davis in just 16-seconds at UFC 175.
Despite her budding big screen career and non stop media obligations, Rousey continues to work tirelessly with the help of her head trainer Edmond Tarverdyan to extend her reign as the baddest woman on the planet.
