Ronda Rousey makes history, first grand slam champion in UFC and WWE

On Monday, May 29, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler overcame Raquel Rodriguez and Shotzi, Bayley and IYO SKY and Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green to capture the vacant WWE Women’s Tag Team Title in an explosive Fatal 4-Way Match.

With the win, Ronda Rousey becomes the first person, male or female, to hold UFC titles, and three separate WWE titles.

In 2013, “Rowdy” Rousey became the inaugural UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and held the title for a record-breaking 1,074 days, making her the longest-reigning champion in the division’s history.

Following her departure from the UFC, Rousey made her WWE debut in 2018. She held the RAW women’s title from 2018-2019 and then the Smackdown women’s championship in 2022.

The only other individual to win world championships with the UFC and the WWE is Brock Lesnar. He won nine world title in pro wrestling but never the WWE tag team titles. He won the UFC heavyweight championship after defeating UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture in 2008.

Rousey was also the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in judo by winning bronze at the 2008 Summer Olympics.
