MMA’S TOP FEMALE fighter, Ronda Rousey, will be favourite to keep her unbeaten run intact by seeing off the threat of Bethe Correia in the main event at UFC 190 tonight.

And the women’s bantamweight champion has paid her respects to the man who inspired her nickname ‘Rowdy’ — wrestling legend Roddy Piper.

Piper, who passed away last night, was one of Rousey’s all-time favourite wrestlers and she posted on Instagram to say she will dedicate her upcoming fight in Brazil to him.

Thank you for the name,” she wrote. “And so much more… Will do it justice and do you proud tomorrow… This one’s for you Roddy…”
