Was Ronda Rousey Snubbed? Ranking Debate

The UFC’s 30th anniversary date has come and gone, and in the build-up to the milestone date, MMA Junkie counted down its 30 greatest fighters of all time to compete for the promotion.

There was plenty of debate about the entire list from top to bottom, but Ronda Rousey, who broke the glass ceiling for women in the UFC, was a polarizing fighter among our voters. But her spot on the list is undeniable.

Rousey is on Mt. Rushmore when it comes to women’s MMA in the UFC. She was the reason the promotion started booking women’s fights after Dana White said it never would happen. She won the first women’s title in UFC history and become a global superstar soon after, but she proved not easy to rank for some of our staff members.

The final list was tabulated through a points system after voting from MMA Junkie’s 12-person staff. Rousey, who now is in the WWE, came in at No. 20. On a special edition of “Spinning Back Clique,” the majority of our staff members came together to discuss and debate the finer points of the list. Is Rousey’s spot at 20 appropriate?
