The mixed martial artist is prepared to reclaim the UFC women's bantamweight championship belt in Friday night's fight against reigning champ Amanda Nunes, and she emanated intimidation at Thursday's weigh-in.
"Thank you everyone who came out to support at the weigh-ins today," Rousey, 29, posted on Instagram along with a picture of herself on the scale. "Looking forward to proving you all right tomorrow. It's going to be the happiest New Year ever."
Prior to the weigh-in, Rousey shared an impressive before and after glance at what she looked like ahead of her February 2015 fight with Cat Zingano and what she looks like now. The side by side shows an astonishing improvement in definition for a body that was already in peak condition.
"To be honest, I looked up, and I saw my man Travis was standing up there, and I looked up at him, and I was like, 'I need to have his babies, I need to stay alive,'" she laughed. "Really, that was it. ... I was meant to have him when I was at my lowest, for sure. I don't know if I would have made it without him."
In November, Rousey returned to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to announce this fight will be one of her last.
