Ronda Rousey reveals 'surprise' location where she will gift UFC belt to Brazil

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

As promised, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey will leave her championship belt in Brazil, just a few days after her knockout win over Bethe Correia in the UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) main event (watch it).

While it was no secret that "Rowdy" was going to part ways with her gold, fulfilling a promise "The Pitbull" couldn't keep, the physical location of her "special surprise" remained a mystery.

Until now.

Rousey is delivering her belt to the Flavio Canto Judo School later today (Tues., Aug. 4, 2015) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the same location where she dropped a $30,000 donation back in March, according to MMA Fighting. Canto, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, won a bronze medal in judo at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.

Those judoka like to stick together.

With Correia in her rear-view mirror, Rousey will move on to film Mile 22 alongside Entourage buddy Mark Wahlberg, then return to the Octagon later this year for her next title defense. Unless something dramatic changes between now and then, "Rowdy" will tango with Miesha Tate for a third (and hopefully final) time.
