Photos: Ronda Rousey performs signature moves for EA Sports UFC 2 motion capture technology

New, comments

UFC women's bantamweight arm collector Ronda Rousey was in Vancouver, Canada, on Thursday (Feb. 18, 2016) to take part in a motion capture technology session with the makers of the video game EA Sports UFC 2.

Rousey visited the EA Sports building to capture her signature moves, including her walk to the cage, warm up moves prior to being announced, staredown while being announced by Bruce Buffer, and of course her fighting moves.

There were some funny moments during the motion capture event, including a clearly terrified tech expert from EA Sports who reluctantly gave his arm to Rousey to be submitted. The 12-1 pro fighter repeatedly told the tech to let his arm "go limp" or he actually would get hurt.

Attending the press event for MMAmania.com and SB Nation was mixed martial arts (MMA) personality Phoenix Carnevale, who recorded some of the session.

Later in the session when they were filming her "post fight celebration" Rousey declined to raise her hands, saying she never does that in a real fight. Coming from a judo background, Rousey said such things aren't generally tolerated and celebrating or raising your arms are taboo.

The fighter also talked to Carnevale about what's been going on in her life since she was last seen in the Octagon at UFC 193 in November 2015, and we expect to have that video up later today.
