Ronda Rousey - On a Quest from Rags to Riches

Ronda Rousey is on a quest from rags to riches.  Less than a year ago, she was scraping together rent money and trying to figure if she would still have enough money left over for dinner.  Yet, through those tough times Ronda stay focused on her dream and kept working.  Doubts crept in, but she would push them away.  No matter how hard things were, Ronda believed that if she kept working hard and chasing her dreams things would get better.  She was right.

Over the past 6 months, Ronda Rousey has exploded on to the MMA scene and literally over night become a true celebrity.  She is now one of the most in demand mixed martial artists in the world, male or female.  She has graced the cover of ESPN Magazine, been featured on HBO Sports, and on Saturday night is fighting in a UFC main event.  Ronda Rousey has officially arrived, and her quest from rags to riches is complete.  Amazingly, through all the mass media attention and superstardom, Ronda has kept a level head and continues to work as hard in the gym as ever.  She recognizes that this opportunity is fleeting, and that it can all disappear as quickly as it came.  At UFC 157 this weekend, we will witness history as Ronda’s journey reaches a whole new level.  Be sure to tune in and catch this phenom in action.
