I can't say for certain that this is the first time a UFC champion has graced the cover of boxing's fabled Ring Magazine, but I'm 99.9% sure that Ronda Rousey is the first one to do so. She's the featured fighter on the January 2016 edition of Ring, with a question of whether or not she'll become a dominant force in boxing as she's been in MMA. Check out the cover for yourself in this Instagram embed:

How quickly times change! Once known for only ever winning by armbar, three of her last four wins have come by KO or TKO, with her win over Bethe Correia at UFC 190 ending in a standing one-punch KO. Chances are we won't be seeing her turn to pro boxing after her MMA career is over, but just take a look at the comments from boxing fans!

In the meantime, Rousey is set to fight former world boxing champion Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 193 on November 14th.
