Ronda Rousey may not be back in the ring, yet, but she's already gearing up, ready to take anything coming her way. She broke her silence in an interview with ESPN magazine as one of the featured top 25 women who have had the biggest impact on sports this year.

She admitted that her defeat to boxing champion Holly Holm made her "really f-cking sad." But the 28-year-old isn't going to let one defeat define her. "Maybe I can't do it all before my prime, before my body is done," she said. "But f-ck it, maybe I can."

"It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact," she added. Ouch! We hope recovery for Ronda has been a speedy one and we can't wait to see her back at what she does best: fighting.
