Ronda Rousey named Sports Illustrated’s Most Dominant Athlete: “You put me under pressure and I unfold.”

This has been a pretty good week for UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, 11-0. Just two days after Business Insider named her their Most Dominant Athlete, Sports Illustrated did the same. She appeared on the cover, along with a feature story, and a video on Sports Illustrated’s website.

In the feature, Rousey is quoted as saying, “‘Dojo fighters’ do amazing sparring in the gym, but you put them under pressure and they fold. I’m one of those people where I do well in the gym. But you put me under pressure and I unfold.”

Rousey defends her UFC title for the fifth time against Bethe Correia, 9-0, at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 1st.

Check out the full feature at Sports Illustrated, and the video below.
