Ronda Rousey already is one of the most dominant American athletes of all time, so it should come as no surprise the UFC bantamweight champ is leaving her mark around the world, too.

Rousey will appear on this month’s Australian edition of Men’s Fitness — which hits shelves Thursday — and normally, that’d just be another day in the life for the 28-year-old. However, Rousey happens to be the first woman ever to grace the cover of Australia’s version of the magazine.

Thank you @mensfitnessau for making me the first woman on your cover!! 💪😁🌏 #UFCMelbourne

Rousey is preparing for her UFC 193 bout with Holly Holm, which will be held in Melbourne, Australia, on Nov. 14.

Rousey has a chance to stay undefeated, and that has helped her possibly break another record. UFC president Dana White said 40,000 tickets already have been sold six weeks before the fight, per, so Rousey is well on her way toward breaking the UFC’s attendance record of 56,000.
