It looks like Ronda Rousey and Jose Aldo are now football friends

The UFC champions hung out together at a Flamengo game.

RONDA ROUSEY WAS one of over 61,000 fans who attended Flamengo’s 2-2 draw with Santos on Sunday evening.

Less than 24 hours after successfully defending her title at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, the undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion attended the Brazilian league game at the Maracana Stadium with her mother, Ann Maria, and younger sister, Julia.

Rousey, the most dominant athlete in mixed martial arts, took just 34 seconds to knock out Bethe Correia in Saturday night’s UFC main event.

Despite defeating a Brazilian fighter, Rousey was still very much in demand at the Flamengo game, appearing to spend most of her time standing in for photos with fans.

Rousey also bumped into one of Flamengo’s most famous supporters — fellow UFC star Jose Aldo, who was attending the game with his daughter, Joanna.

Aldo, the UFC’s featherweight champion, will fight interim title-holder Conor McGregor in a bout which is expected to take place in December or January.

Via Twitter, Aldo said: “Look who’s here and has become a Flamengo supporter? Ronda Rousey!!! Welcome to Maracana!”
