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.

It’s a pretty impressive resume for Dr. Waddell, but because this is the internet the jokes and memes came flying in.
