It took just 54 seconds on Saturday night for "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey to emphatically prove that she is the top female fighter in the world at 135 pounds. Like so many others before her now, Sarah Kaufman fell victim to the armbar from the Olympic medalist in judo. 

Rousey, who became the Strikeforce bantamweight champion in March, has seen her popularity skyrocket in recent months. She even found herself baring all on the cover of ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue in 2012.

The rise to stardom has obviously been great for Rousey's career, but it has also helped spark the kind of interest in women's combat sports that it has never achieved in the past.
