UFC winner Ronda Rousey won another award last night at ESPN’s annual ESPY awards. She won the 2014 ESPY Best Female Athlete award.

This is Ronda Rousey's year. She not only won the UFC women's championship recently, but also named the Best Female Athlete last night at ESPY Awards 2014

The award show was held at Nokia Theater, Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, July 16 at 9 p.m. ET. Hosted by Darke, ESPY Awards 2014 went live on ESPN.

27-year-old female boxer beat Olympic skier Mikaela Shiffrin, and basketball players Maya Moore from Minnesota Lynx and Breanna Stewart from Connecticut Women’s Basketball to win the best overall female athlete award.

Ronda Rousey was also nominated for another 2014 ESPY Awards category. She was nominated for Best Fighter along with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and boxers Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, and Andre Ward. However, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. won this award.

Ronda has been a pugilist and provocateur since her days as a kid who carried a chip on her shoulder. She is one of the top female boxers in the world. She also qualified for the Atlanta Olympic Games in 2004. She also won a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Games.
