Congratulations are in order for UFC turned WWE superstar, Ronda Rousey, as it’s been announced she’ll be the first female inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2018.
UFC President Dana White had this to say in regards to Rousey’s induction, as reported by WWE.com:
“Ronda is an absolute pioneer who helped me personally, and a lot of other people, look at women in combat sports differently. She accomplished everything she set out to do with UFC and became a global icon and role model in the process. Today, the women’s divisions are packed with incredibly talented fighters, and they produce some of the best fights you’ll ever see. We’re proud to announce her as the final inductee of the 2018 UFC Hall of Fame Class.”
Rousey, who enters the Hall of Fame as a member of the Modern Wing, had this to say about her upcoming induction, as reported by WWE.com:
“This is an immense honor, to not only take part in bringing women to the forefront of this sport, but now the UFC Hall of Fame. May I be the first of many.”
The celebration which is less than one month away, takes place on Thursday, July 5th at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. You can be a part of the historic event, as it will be streamed live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
