Summary When Ronda Rousey approached the president of the UFC and told him that one day she would fight for him, he was skeptical. Rousey made a name for herself as the youngest judoka and a force to be reckoned with when she qualified for the 2004 Olympics at the age of seventeen. Through a combination of determination and hard work, Rousey went on to become the first UFC women s bantamweight champion. With easy-to-follow text and full-color photos, readers will learn about Rousey's life and the challenges she has overcome. Sidebars help readers learn more about the sport. A glossary helps readers master new vocabulary, while Further Reading encourages further exploration.
