UFC champ Ronda Rousey named 'most dominant athlete alive'

Not fighter, ATHLETE. Deal with it.

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Nope, "Money" came up short at No. 14. How about Usain Bolt? Sorry, the world's fastest man wasn't quick enough to get past No. 5.

No, the title of "most dominant athlete alive" belongs to none other than Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who also topped LeBron James, Serena Williams, and mixed martial arts (MMA) cohort Jon Jones.

From Business Insider:

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.

Get a sample of that dominance here.

Rousey (11-0) will put her perfect record on the line against unblemished challenger Bethe Correia, who fights the Olympian in the upcoming UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled to go down inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Aug. 1, 2015.
