Rousey Tops LeBron James, Floyd Mayweather & Others As “Most Dominant Athlete Alive”

What do LeBron James, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Serena Williams have in common? They are all ranked lower than Ronda Rousey in Business Insider’s “Most Dominant Athletes Alive.”

The BusinessInsider.com website released the list this week, which features the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion in the top spot of a list of 50 athletes from various sports.

The official blurb accompanied by Rousey’s spot atop the list reads as follows:

1. Ronda Rousey
UFC fighter
Age: 28

No athlete is the best in their sport by a wider margin than Rousey. Her two wins in the past year have lasted an average of 15 seconds. The UFC made her its first female fighter ever. In her five UFC fights, only one opponent has made it out of the first round without getting knocked out of submission. She’s not just undefeated; she’s effectively untouched.

Rousey topping the list also includes a link to a full-page bio where the editor of the story explains why she is the number one ranked “most dominant athlete” on the planet. To read that, click here.
