Badass women alert!  “Epic” is the perfect four-letter word to describe this week’s A-List women.  They’re inspirational, they’re aspirational and they masterfully embrace who they are.  By tapping into their identity, strengths and vulnerabilities, their achievements have soared to new heights – well beyond their wildest dreams.

  1.  Ronda Rousey Takes On Gender Barriers In a Way No Woman Has Before – RYOT

Bringing female MMA fighters to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), becoming the first woman to cover Men’s Fitness magazine in Australia… these are just a few gender busting moves by Ronda Rousey.  She no longer allows UFC to announce her as the “Women’s Bantamweight Champion,” asking them to omit “Women’s.”  Sports Illustrated named her The World’s Most Dominant Athlete and UFC calls her a once in a lifetime fighter.  Watch the video to hear a bit of her journey as an athlete and keep your eyes peeled for her signature Judo move, the “Arm Bar.”  

Do you think she has what it takes to successfully defend her bantamweight title for the seventh time at UFC 193 vs. Holly Holm?
