I’m not in Brazil right now, but according to media members present, UFC champ Ronda Rousey is getting a lot of love. Like, an insane amount. Despite being slated to take on Brazilian Bethe Correia on Saturday night at UFC 190, it seems the American is the focus of all the goodwill, attention and cheers. How cool is that?
(If you’re Correia, it’s not cool at all. It sucks, actually.)
Below is an example posted to the UFC’s Instagram of just how much the champ is appreciated down there. What’s not shown: Correia’s open workout and the crowd showering her with garbage.
