Rousey cracks Fortune’s most influential ’40 under 40′ list
Ronda Rousey is reaping success left and right in 2015, securing victory after victory without even reaching a minute.
Her 34-second annihilation of Bethe Correia was a mere highlight of her year as the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion added another accolade to her growing resume.
Rousey landed at the 40th spot of Fortuna Magazine’s 40 under 40, an annual ranking “of the most influential young people in business,” as the magazine said in its website.
Fortune’s list refers to the 40 people under the age of 40 who “standout for measurements of wealth, power, achievement, ambition, and influence.”
Rousey not only met the criteria but she made an absolute case for inclusion after she earned an estimated $5 million from all her fights.
She also remains as an undefeated UFC champion and has spearheaded the rise of women in UFC.
She also appeared in hit movies including include Fast and Furious 7, The Expendables 3, Entourage, and the forthcoming remake of Road House.
