There’s been a lot of talk from and about Ronda Rousey lately, but the time has finally arrived for action. UFC 190 is coming up this Saturday and the women’s bantamweight champion will face power puncher Bethe Correia in Rio de Janeiro’s HSBC Arena. Rousey is already down in Brazil promoting the fight, and took part in open workouts Wednesday afternoon. The footage, shot by MMA Fighting’s E. Casey Leydon, is impressive.
For fifteen minutes, Ronda put on a show for the fans, showing off her footwork and hand speed, as well as the judo throws and armbars that propelled her to the top of the division. A packed audience cheered her on with every throw, proving that she has more than a few fans in Correia’s backyard.
Stick around til the 14:30 mark when a little girl in a judo gi runs out to get an autograph from the champion. Who says Ultimate Fighting can’t be adorable?
