This past weekend Ronda Rousey was surrounded by some of Hollywood’s most iconic male action hero’s. Today, she cracks the top 50 in the Maxim Hot 100 2014 List. Even though she hasn’t officially graced the big screen in movie theatres across the globe, her work inside the Octagon has made her practically a household name. So much so that in the past year she has grown into the face of the UFC as one of their most sought after and marketable athletes. She recently filmed 2 other movies this past year, Entourage and Fast 7. Not to mention her cameo on American Idol which surprised even her when Dana White announced it at a UFC press conference.
Maxim has released a partial list of their 2014 Hot 100, and it is to no surprise that Ronda Rousey landed the #42 spot. Most notably Ronda finds herself just behind former MMA star Gina Carano (#39) who back in 2011 left the sport to pursue her acting career in Hollywood. Quite the honor for Ronda to be listed with some of the biggest female names in movies, music, & modelling. Rihanna, Beyonce, and Charlize Theron to name a few. When you consider the fact that she still sits as the undefeated champion atop the Women’s Bantamweight Division in the UFC, not to mention is listed as #10 on the UFC’s Overall Pound-For-Pound Rankings.
