Ronda Rousey is famous for being the champion MMA fighter who knocks out her opponents within mere seconds into the first round. What isn’t as well-known (but we think should be) is that she also knocks us out with her fashion choices just as quickly on the red carpet!

Ronda’s got a sexy yet tough style that extends to her strappy and slinky shoe choices armored with studs, metals, and chains.

Below are 12 times Ronda got the glam as she does in the ring:
