Our budding obsession with Ronda Rousey is no secret. We pointed you to her hot Twitter pics last week, and we named her one of the most beautiful but brutal female fighters. Well, they don’t call it an obsession for nothing – the Olympic medal winning MMA fighter is our Crush of the Day.

Rousey is earning widespread acclaim and fandom for her skilled performance on the mat. The sexy Strikeforce fighter is becoming so popular that some are wondering whether the captivating cage fighter will become the new face of MMA.

It’s easy to see why Rousey is so popular – she’s hot, aggressive, talented, and she’s a winner. The competitive 25-year-old is currently ranked as the top pound for pound female fighter by MMA Rising, and she also tops the list of Unified Woman’s MMA female fighters.

She took down her most recent opponent, Sarah Kaufman, by submission in under a minute, defending her bantamweight title and sealing her rep as MMA’s toughest new athlete. And we’re happy to submit too – we’re crushing hard on Ronda Rousey.
