Updated AUG 5, 2015 at 4:30p ET. In March, UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey donated $30,000 to the Instituto Recao – a Judo school and “Social job” w hundreds of kids take part in Judo lessons and an interdisciplinary plan meant to help them physically and cognitively.
On Tuesday, Rousey donated the championship belt earned Saturday in Rio at UFC 190 to the school, w it will stay.
Last week, leading up to her UFC 190 chief event against Brazilian adversary Bethe Correia, Rousey agreed together with her rival that the UFC championship belt should stay in Brazil.
Rousey kept the designation in the United States with her 34-second KO win, but desires the belt to remain in Brazil to inspire the kids at Instituto Recao.
That position is the Judo school – owned by Olympic Judo bronze medalist Flavio Canto.
Rousey, obviously, can also be a two time Judo Olympian, and a bronze medalist herself.
she’s seen the school before and worked out together with the kids.
