Ronda Rousey has earned the 40th spot on Fortune's 40 under 40 list of the most influential young people in business in 2015.

The undefeated mixed martial arts fighter has created a big name for herself this year by overpowering other female fighters in the sport.

In August, Rousey defeated Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds to win UCF 190 and retain the women's Bantamweight title.

Just this year, the 28-year-old has earned an estimated $5 million from fighting. She has also expanded her career outside of the ring with roles in notable films such as Furious 7 and the Entourage movie.

Fortune also adds that Rousey, who has spoken out about body image issues, is a great source of inspiration for women.

Rousey is joined on the list by Jason Robins, 34, who is the co-founder and CEO of Draftkings, a fantasy sports service provider. Robins earned the eighth spot on the list.
