“The Baddest Woman on the Planet” becomes the first woman enshrined in UFC’s Hall of Fame.

Ronda Rousey was formally inducted into UFC’s Hall of Fame during a ceremony on Thursday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The Baddest Woman on the Planet” was enshrined into the “Modern” wing of the UFC’s Hall of Fame thanks to her historic reign as UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion. As a titleholder, Rousey was known for ending fights almost instantly with her signature armbar, a maneuver she used to great success in a dominant stint that stretched from 2013-15.

Rousey, who was inducted by UFC President Dana White, spoke candidly during her acceptance speech about the support she received from her fans and the remarkable impact she made during her storied MMA career.

“I look around and think together we built this, this division, this sport, this revolution,” she said. “Together, we have redefined what it means to be strong, to be sexy. We’ve changed what it means to ‘fight like a girl.'”

By joining Forrest Griffin, BJ Penn and Urijah Faber in the Modern wing, Rousey is now the first woman to enter UFC’s Hall of Fame.
