Ronda Rousey has added another accolade to her decorated resume, as the UFC bantamweight champ was awarded “Best Female Athlete” at the 2014 ESPYs.

Rousey, who was also nominated for “Best Fighter”, beat out basketball players Maya Moore, Breanna Stewart and alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin for the honor.

UFC light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones was also up for “Best Fighter”, but that award was given to boxer Floyd Mayweather.

The 27 year-old Rousey is coming off a quick, knockout win over Alexis Davis at UFC 175, to extend her pro record to 10-0.
