ESPY's 2015: UFC champion Ronda Rousey wins 'Best Female Athlete' again, beats out Serena Williams and Lindsey Vonn

There's no stopping the "Rowdy" freight train ...

For the second straight year, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey, walked away with the "Best Female Athlete" award at the ESPY awards, which took place tonight (Weds., July 15, 2015), airing live on ABC from Los Angeles, California.

"Rowdy" bested college basketball star Breanna Stewart, professional skier Lindsey Vonn, and tennis star Serena Williams to claim top honors.

With the win, Rousey went two-for-two tonight, taking home "Best Fighter" earlier in the evening over six-time winner Floyd Mayweather Jr. to earn bragging rights. She also took the time to take a shot of "Money's" conviction and prison sentence for domestic violence back in 2012.

Indeed, Rousey did predict not too long ago that 2015 was going to make 2014 look like a "bitch." And with her book hitting the New York Times Best Seller list, Hollywood calling for more, a 14-second destruction of Cat Zingano and now doubling up on ESPY honors, she's been spot on with her prediction.

And we still have five months left in 2015.

A cherry on top would be if she can defend her title for sixth consecutive time when she faces Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC 190, which is set to go down on Aug., 1, 2015, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
