Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm make Google’s list of top searches for 2015

rousey_holm_ufc193_thumbIs it any surprise that Ronda Rousey has made Google’s list of the top searches of 2015? Google unveiled their annual list of most-searched terms on Wednesday and the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion came in at No. 8, just below the video game “Fallout 4” on the list of top Global searches. In comparison, Rousey came in at No. 5, just below Caitlyn Jenner on the list of top U.S. searches overall.

The lists are broken down into several categories and the Olympic judo medalist turned professional mixed martial arts fighter is also ranked as the No. 1 most-searched for Athlete in 2015 in the U.S. And Coming in at No. 2 on the Athlete search list is none other than newly-crowned UFC women’s 135-pound champ Holly Holm, who KO’d Rousey at UFC 193 last month.

Rousey also made the list for most-searched People, coming in at No. 3 in the U.S., just below Caitlyn Jenner and Lamar Odom. And she ranked at No. 2 Globally on most-searched People, just below Odom, who garnered mass attention earlier this year after a four-day bender in a Nevada brothel left him unconscious and fighting for his life.

We’ve got a strong hunch Conor McGregor will be on next year’s Global list. He did of course make Ireland’s top search list.
