It’s obvious that UFC women’s bantamweight Ronda Rousey’s star power and popularity has exploded through the stratosphere this year, and heading into her groundbreaking title defense against Holly Holm at UFC 193 from Etihad Stadium in Melbourne Australia, “Rowdy” has added yet another first to her list of trailblazing milestones.

Earlier today (Saturday, October 3, 2015) the dominant champion announced that she had become the first woman to adorn the cover of Men’s Fitness Australia on Instagram. She’ll only appear on the Australian version of the periodical, but it’s an impressive accomplishment to appear on the cover of a magazine that’s predominantly featured men nonetheless.
