Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey can add another accolade to her massive collection, as the "Rowdy" ex-titleholder recently made the Time "100 Most Influential People" list for 2016.

And here to explain why is Hollywood icon Tina Fey:

Imagine if we could teach our daughters to value their bodies for what they can do, not for how others think they look. Could Ronda be the one to finally help us understand that as females, we define the word feminine and that it doesn't define us? If we don't listen, can she dislocate our arms at the elbow?

Last year, when Ronda suffered her first-ever UFC loss at the hands (and feet) of Holly Holm, her detractors rejoiced. But Ronda will be back. "Everybody has losses in their life, but I choose to always be undefeated." Put this DSB on Mount Rushmore already.

In addition to her exploits inside the Octagon, Rousey has championed women's body issues throughout her part-time modeling career (sample), opting to pose heavier and more natural as opposed to what she looks like during the weigh ins before a fight.

And let's not forget this.
