The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder has received endless endorsements from the likes of boxing great Mike Tyson and Grammy Award-winning singer Beyonce. Now, "Rowdy" can add NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Danica Patrick to her growing list of admirers.
"I feel like she does a really good job of being who she is, I think that's what people see in her," Patrick told reporters at a Tissot watch event (via Sporting News). "I feel like when I see her, I see Ronda. I feel like she's being honest and upfront. We as consumers love to see that."
There you have it, a co-sign from one pioneer in the female sports world to another.
Outside of her numerous media obligations, and hosting gigs, the Glendale Fight Club representative is in the midst of making last-minute preparations for her seventh title defense against the undefeated Holly Holm (9-0) at the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on Sat., Nov. 14, 2015.
