Rousey named “30 Most Powerful Women in Sport”

June 28, 2016

Ronda Rousey was named one of the 30 Most Powerful Women in Sport according to Adweek.  In this inaugural list, the selections will be celebrated at the Clio Sports gala in New York on July 7th.

Those selected reflect the influencers, industry leaders and record breakers in their respective sports. The list includes athletes, leaders within the C-Suite and personalities working within sport.  Notably, the WWE’s Stephanie McMahon was named on this list.  Danica Patrick, Serena Williams and golfer Lydia Ko are among those on the list.

Via Ad Week:

As the UFC has made headway in the American sports consciousness, Ronda Rousey has given the sport the one thing it’s been lacking: a bona fide superstar.

Payout Perspective:

Despite what many “pure” MMA fans think of Rousey, she is a mainstream star.  Even though she has not fought since last November and does not have another fight scheduled, she has used her sport to propel her to a career in movies and a brand ambassador.  Will her next fight in the octagon determine her future on this list?

    Yes, she’s so pretty and willing to take her clothes off for SI. What else is the public looking for in a female athlete?

    Embarrassing.

Got something to say?
