    Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, deserves most of the credit for bringing women's mixed martial arts (MMA) into the mainstream media, which in turn created dozens of opportunities for up-and-coming female fighters. Like UFC strawweight contender Weili Zhang, for example. “I feel like a proud mama watching how women's MMA has grown,” Rousey told her social media followers. “Women from all walks of life, from all over the world are rising to the challenge and showing the world what it means to fight like a girl.
