Before and After Images Show Ronda Rousey Is At Her Most Ripped Ahead of UFC 207

Amanda Nunes will be facing a beastly Rousey on December 30.

If the 29-year-old submission specialist has ever been in better shape, this writer hasn’t witnessed it.

There’s a particular focus on the development of Rousey’s back, which is in no doubt aided by her boxing training and the over-exertion placed on the shoulders when twisting one’s body into a punch, showing just how effective combat training can be for the physique in general.rousey2

If you ever wanted to take up some form of interval training and are looking to get better at defending yourself at the same time, Rousey stands as proof that judo, jiu-jitsu and other martial arts might just be the way to go.

Rowdy has also been incredibly secretive during this fight camp—even by her standards—but she recently opened up to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne to disclose exactly why she’s been living like a hermit:

“It’s like I’m doing the chick version of growing a beard and living in a cave, you know? You remember when Batman goes off to this ninja place, then time lapses and you see he’s grown this beard? My woman version of growing a beard was letting my highlights grow out and changing my number.”

And there it is, ladies and gentlemen. If you didn’t already have reason to at least root for the dethroned champion in some capacity come December 30, she just compared herself to the Dark Knight himself—and one can see why.

If there was a Batman character out there Rousey more closely resembled, however, one might be tempted to go with Bane the way her traps have developed in recent months. See a resemblance?

But seriously, Nunes will take this fight lightly at her own peril. The last time we saw Rousey in UFC action, it was losing her title after seeing her jaw shattered by the kick that was heard around the world—a tough fate to come back from.

Will her new-and-improved frame do her justice inside the Octagon. One has the feeling it won’t be Rousey’s body that decides the result at all, with more questions placed over her mind heading back to Las Vegas.
