#5 Overhand right
Like most grapplers who transition to the world of Mixed Martial Arts, Ronda Rousey initially developed a great overhand right, where she'd fake going for a takedown or feign a clinch attempt, only to crack her opponent with a thunderous overhand right.
Rousey's KO wins against Alexis Davis and Bethe Correia, are proof of the monstrous KO power the former possesses in her right hand. Rousey usually sets up her overhand right, by first throwing out an open-handed jab to measure the distance.
Once she gets her opponent's distance and timing down, Rousey then steps into range and fires off her powerful right hand.
