VIDEOS: Ronda Rousey Inducted Into UFC Hall of Fame; Dana White Does the Honors, WWE Mentioned

Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey became the first woman ever inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on Thursday evening.

The ceremony took place in Las Vegas as a part of International Fight Week, building up to The Ultimate Fighter finale on Friday, and a massive UFC 226 pay-per-view on Saturday night headlined by Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier for the heavyweight title. Rousey headlined the Modern Wing, with Matt Serra entering the Pioneer Wing, alongside long-time television producer Bruce Connal and UFC co-creator Art Davie.

It was UFC President Dana White – yes, the same man who once famously stated that women would never compete in his octagon – that inducted “Rowdy” Ronda into the Hall of Fame. During his introduction, White admitted that the inaugural women’s champion single-handedly changed his mind on female fighters, listing her numerous accomplishments and even referencing her future potential “making millions of dollars” as a professional wrestler in WWE.

The 31-year-old California native, who was escorted to the stage by her husband Travis Browne, dedicated a tremendous speech entirely to the fans, speaking directly to her millions of supporters around the globe.
