Watch Ronda Rousey grow from a young girl to UFC legend in brilliant promo

They’ve out done themselves with this one.

A LOT OF people who know their MMA are calling it the best promotional video the UFC has ever produced.

Ronda Rousey is much more than the undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion. She’s a sporting icon.

Holly Holm will become the latest fighter to attempt to stop Rousey when they step into the Octagon at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia, on 15 November.

This promo, which was first tweeted out by US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, shows Rousey discovering judo as a girl, winning bronze at the 2008 Olympic Games, and climbing the ladder to become the greatest female fighter in MMA history.
