Ronda Rousey is one of the most dominant women in any company she has been a part of. A former Olympic bronze medalist, Rousey broke the limits for women in MMA and WWE. Making history in every division, Rousey has cemented herself as the Baddest B***h on the Planet, time and again. But many times, some put her against men to clarify who’s stronger. One of these just happened to be a former UFC fighter.

This UFC veteran is none other than David ‘Tank’ Abbott. He was a UFC fighter who has a record of 10-15 wins and losses. He also has the distinct honor of being the only fighter to enter 5 tournaments during his time.

She has a remarkable record of 12-2 where she beat the first 12 except a single woman in the 1st round.

While Rousey may have moved to pro wrestling, Abbott has also competed in the sport.
