The arm-collecting judoka who owns the UFC title belt for the female division, Ronda Rousey doesn’t pass up a chance to hone her style with Jiu-Jitsu black belts.
In Torrance, Calif., the winsome fighter made sure to drop in on the Gracie Academy for some training in the lead-up to her encounter with Liz Carmoush in the UFC 157 main event in California this coming Feb. 23.
Rousey made the most of a pause in training with Professor Ryron Gracie to blow a little kiss to Grandmaster Helio Gracie.
Rousey paid a visit to Rorion Gracie and sons’ academy this weekend. Besides training, Rousey made the most of the trip to stop by the Helio Gracie museum and give the image of the grandmaster a kiss.
