UFC champion Ronda Rousey and former champion Jon Jones made the list of the most dominant athletes alive. The fact that Rousey and Jones made the list in the first place is impressive, but to rank higher than the likes of Kevin Garnett and James Harden is truly an accomplishment.
Business Insider sandwiched former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones between Valerie Adams and Marcel Hirscher at #18. Ronda Rousey, on the other hand, topped the list at #1 just above LeBron James!
(#18) Jon Jones: The only thing that can stop Jon Jones is himself. He hasn’t lost a fight in more than five years, having defended his UFC title eight times. But before his latest win, a unanimous decision over Daniel Cormier, he tested positive for cocaine and generated a firestorm. He was later stripped of his title after getting arrested on charges of allegedly leaving the scene of a car crash.
(#1) Ronda Rousey: No athlete is the best in their sport by a wider margin than Rousey. Her two wins in the past year have lasted an average of 15 seconds. The UFC made her its first female fighter ever. In her five UFC fights, only one opponent has made it out of the first round without getting knocked out of submission. She’s not just undefeated; she’s effectively untouched.
