In the Best Female Athlete category, Rousey won the award over an impressive field that included tennis great Serena Williams, Skiing star Lindsey Vonn, and UConn basketball standout Breanna Stewart. The athletes Rousey beat out for the Best Fighter award were no less impressive, as the field included her UFC colleague Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and boxing stars Floyd Mayweather, Gennady Golovkin and Terence Crawford.

Currently in training for her UFC 190 bout against Bethe Correia on August 1, Rousey's past 12 months has included successful title defense wins over Alexis Davis and Cat Zingano, victories that took a combined 30 seconds.
