Instituto Reacao in Brazil
While in Brazil to promote her title fight against native Bethe Correia at UFC 190, “Rowdy” got some training in with newly minted lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos prior to handing out a $30,000 check to Reaction Institute, run by fellow Olympic Judoka Flavio Canto.
“The gloves from my last fight sold for 30k, and after visiting @flaviocanto’s @institutoreacao I could think of no better cause to donate to. The look on his face was priceless ☺️ Can’t wait to visit the kids again fresh off another win after #ufc190.” -Ronda Rousey
