Ronda Rousey continues to prove why she's the biggest star in the UFC. As well as partnering with Reebok, Carl's Jr., Metro PCS and Buffalo Jeans, the female pound for pound #1 has added Monster Energy to her growing list of sponsors.

Monster Energy's Sports Marketing Vice President broke the news at a recent press conference (per FOX Sports).

"We are excited to welcome Ronda to our team," said Mitch Covington. "Not only is she regarded as the world's most dominant athlete, but she is also an inspiration to all as one of the most iconic MMA fighters of all time with her unsurpassed drive, commitment, star power and worldwide crossover fan base that has made her a true champion."

The energy drink company has also secured deals with Conor McGregor, Donald Cerrone and Daniel Cormier.

Ronda Rousey was declared the "Best Female Athlete" at the 2015 ESPY's, beating Tennis star Serena Williams to take home the title. The undefeated women's bantamweight champion was also listed as one of the highest paid female athletes in the world by Forbes.

Rousey will defend her 135 lbs. title for the 7th time against boxing world champion Holly Holm next week at UFC 193 on November 15th in Melbourne, Australia.
