Recently, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey landed a spot on the cover of ‘Ring’ magazine, which is a boxing magazine.
While UFC fans were impressed by Rousey gracing the cover of the famed boxing magazine, boxing fans were split down the middle. Some said that it was wrong of the magazine to feature a UFC champion rather than a boxer. Others said that Rousey being on the cover could draw new eyes to boxing, which many consider to be a dying sport.
