"I am not the first person who had the ability to do this, but I am here because I am the first person you took the time to watch," Rousey told the crowd at the Pearl Theatre during her induction speech. "That you put the energy into supporting. Because of you, I am the first woman standing up here accepting this incredible honor. May I be the first of many."
"In my almost 18 years as UFC president, I've learned many valuable lessons," White said as he presented Rousey. "And the one that comes to mind tonight is never say never, especially when you're talking to UFC. In my defense, when I famously said women would never fight in the UFC, I had never met Ronda Rousey. I had never met the woman who would change everything. She started by changing my mind and she ended up changing the world.
