Ronda Rousey celebrated her victory over Bethe Correia in a typically Brazilian setting. On Sunday, the triumphant UFC women’s bantamweight champion wore the colors of Rio Flamengo at a soccer game between the Flamengo club and Santos at Rio de Janeiro’s famous Maracanã stadium.
Rousey, 28, attended the game with her family, took pictures with fans and talked to another king of the UFC, Brazilian featherweight champion Jose Aldo. He posted images of their visit on social media.
"Look who 's here and has turned Flamengo! Ronda Rousey has come to Maracana,” Aldo wrote in the caption, which was posted on Twitter.
On Saturday, Rousey (12-0) soundly defeated Brazilian challenger Correia by knockout in only 34 seconds in the main event of UFC 190 at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro . With the victory, Rousey preserved her unbeaten record and proved once again that she is one of the most dominant champions in the history of sport.
