UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is gearing up for her sixth title defense in just her 12th pro fight (actually her seventh title defense if you want to be all lineal about it). She’s set to face off against challenger Bethe Correia in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at UFC 190 on Saturday, August 1st. Which, for those with severe time management problems, makes this fight week. As such, Rousey is already down in Brazil taking care of fight week business, and one of the major attractions for fans in the days leading up to the fight card is open workouts.

Rousey hit the beach in front of a large crowd of vociferous fans to do her thing and show off a few of the skills she plans on using agianst Correia this weekend. Rousey gave a display of her various throw setups before actually going through various throw to armbar transitions and then putting in a few minutes of solid mitt work.A lot of her game was on display for fans wanting to see just what the champ can do.
