Rousey, the unbeaten female bantamweight UFC champion, is known for finishing off her opponents in less than a minute.

A title fight with Cat Zingano lasted a record-breaking 14 seconds last year, while her last three title fights have lasted less than two minutes – combined.

Rousey’s Australian cover comes the month before she faces Holly Holm in a UFC headlining fight at Etihad stadium in Melbourne.

In 2014, Rousey made headlines when she declared she could beat boxing champ Floyd Mayweather in a no-rules fight.

“Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time,” wrote Rousey wrote on a Reddit ‘Ask me anything’ session.

“He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don’t get into ‘matches.’ I fight for a living.”

Accepting the ESPY award for Best Fighter last year, Rousey quipped: “I wonder how Floyd [Mayweather] feels being beat by a woman for once.”
