Report: UFC champ Ronda Rousey involved in physical altercation with male wrestler in Los Angeles


Like it or not, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey is a huge fan of professional wrestling, along with her "Four Horsewomen" stablemates Jessamyn Duke, Shayna Baszler, and Marina Shafir.

The proof is in the WWE pudding.

But just because the major leagues aren't in town doesn't mean Rousey & Co. can't get their wrasslin' fix, as evidenced by their attendance at the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) indy show last Friday night (Oct. 17, 2014) in Reseda, Los Angeles, California.

From TMZ Sports:

During one of the matches she was prompted by a wrestler named Tommaso Ciampa to chop his opponent's chest. After some audience urging, Ronda reeled back and lit up the guy's chest -- the place went nuts.

From ringside:



Had an awesome time at the @officialpwg / @prowrestlingguerrilla show last night with @rondarousey @qosbaszler and @jessamynduke... Thanks to @1220raven for hooking us up! Best pro wrestling show/crowd I've ever been to.

I'm sure this isn't going to sit well with all the MMA elitists.

Rousey had to duck out early thanks to a scheduled training session the following morning, as "Rowdy" prepares to defend her 135-pound title against Cat Zingano at the UFC 182 pay-per-view (PPV) event next January in Las Vegas, Nevada.

No word yet if a (woooo) chest chop is part of her game plan.
