American Judoka Kayla Harrison won her second Olympic Gold Medal on Thursday. Is a move to mixed martial arts next? Harrison won gold at the 2012 London Olympics and added the 2016 Rio Olympics to her resume with an ippon victory, ending her match with France’s Audrey Tcheuméo via armbar.

Ronda Rousey won bronze in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but rocketed to stardom as the first female champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
