Ronda Rousey

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is transcending the sport and taking over the whole world.

Not only can she be seen as a role model for aspiring fighters, or young girls struggling with bullying, buts she can also help inspire a locker room full of NFL football players.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn told Sports Illustrated’s Peter King that he showed the video of Rousey’s 34 second KO of Bethe Correia to the entire team in hopes of inspiring them to take their game to the next level.

“There was a genuine respect for her in the room. I wanted to show them this fight because she is a great example of the fact that there is another level of competitor out there. We’re trying to find that extra level in all of our players. Athletes like her we hope will leave an impression.”
