As we all wait to see what she does next, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is getting back on the mats. This time, to teach a little something about judo to the next generation.
Rousey got swept by a young man as the two worked technique in an Instagram video posted from her account today.
After falling very dramatically to the mat, Rousey smiled and playfully chided her training partner, “Don’t let them go!” The young man, not wanting to risk it, declined to pounce.
The once-dominant fighter seemed to be in high spirits, a good sign considering the tumult of her past year. Rousey returned to the octagon after a year-long layoff and was stopped in just 48 seconds by current bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. She didn’t talk to the media before or after her loss, aside from releasing a prepared statement.
Rousey has been in the headlines recently as speculation of a potential jump to professional wrestling has heated up. Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) appeared at WrestleMania two years ago and was a big hit with fans. WWE executive Stephanie McMahon said Rousey is a perfect match for the organization and issued an open-ended invitation. -MMAJunkie
