Ronda Rousey is used to the spotlight. The former UFC and WWE champion has always been in the headlines, but now she is a top trend on Twitter for a very surprising reason.
Rousey is trending not for any news regarding her future in the cage, ring, or on the movie screen.
Instead, she’s trending because of a fun fact about her great grandfather.
As it turns out, Trinidad-born Canadian Dr. Alfred E. Waddell was one of the first Black physicians in North America. He began practicing medicine at age 26 after immigrating to Halifax, Canada.
