On Feb. 23, 2013, Ronda Rousey made history by becoming the UFC’s first female bantamweight champion. After locking up her signature armbar on Liz Carmouche, Rousey became the No. 1 female fighter in the world, and she has been on the rise ever since. Where did this force of nature come from? And how high can Rousey go? ESPNW’s Nine for IX takes an inside look at that fight and how Rousey’s ascension is paving the way for female fighters.

      Agree, IF – and only IF – she can make 135 CLEAN and prove she is still good at that weight. So let’s wait for her 135 fight and post-fight drug test results.
