Ronda Rousey is widely considered one of the most legendary UFC fighters in the game, but it turns out there's something else about her that's just as notable: she has a black ancestor.
When TMZ caught up with the Rousey women while out on the town recently, Ronda's mother revealed the fighter's great-grandfather was one of the first black physicians in North America.
Not only that, Dr. Alfred Waddell was so well-known there's even a documentary about him, Before His Time, that chronicles his journey from menial jobs in New York City to Halifax, Canada where he serviced a wide array of patients--even providing lodging for musicians including Cab Calloway when he couldn't get a hotel room. Wow!
Check out snippet from the documentary below.
