One of my favorite things about MMA is that it's one of those sports, like tennis, where the women are just as compelling to watch as the men. And hopefully without coming off as misogynistic, they can be pretty damn compelling outside of the Octagon as well.

Everyone knows Ronda Rousey is gorgeous, but there are plenty of other gals out there who can more than carry themselves in interviews, photoshoots, red carpets, and sometimes even on the silver screen.

So without further ado, these are the top 10 most bold and beautiful women from MMA.

10. Rachael Cummins

She's German, Swedish, and Russian. What a combo...

9. Miesha Tate

One of the top 5 fighters in WMMA, Miesha Tate truly brings power and grace to the equation.

8. Tiffany Van Soest

She's from California, is a Muay Thai kickboxer, and competes in the bantamweight division.

7. Michelle 'Karate Hottie' Waterson

With the nickname 'Karate Hottie', how could I not include her on this list? Simply gorgeous.

6. Ronda Rousey

I know many of you want her at number one, but I think Rousey has some stiff competition, as you'll see from the top 5.

5. Rachel Wray

Potentially the best body in MMA.

4. Maegan Goodwin

Standing tall at 5'11", she started doing MMA to lose weight, only for it to become her full-time career.

3. Kyra Gracie

She's a part of a long line of MMA legends and is the niece of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master Renzo Gracie.

2. Paige VanZant

Unclear of that's Khaleesi from Game of Thrones or an up-and-coming star in MMA. Oh, it's not the 'Mother of Dragons'? Oh, okay...

1. Gina Carano

She was formerly the third best in her class in the world and has since gone on to become an actress, television personality and fitness model.
