Ronda Rousey stopping by Cesar Gracie’s camp in April

Strikeforce bantamweight title-holder Ronda Rousey has grown leaps and bounds since turning from judo to a life in MMA. Now, the former Olympian has decided to expand her skills on a regular basis by joining UFC fighters Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz in Stockton.

Rousey talked about an upcoming trip to Cesar Gracie‘s camp, where the Diaz brothers amongst others, train, in an interview with MMAWeekly Radio where she said, “I’m going up there from the 3rd to the 16th and it’s going to be the first time ever since I started doing MMA that I’m going to be training for an actual extended period of time away from my core camp, who I’ve always been with.”

“When I did judo I used to go around all the time, like every month or so I would go away for a week or two weeks to go train somewhere else. For some reason, it’s something I never did in MMA, so they invited me to come train up there,” added the 25-year old champion, also saying she planned to stop there in the future too while preparing for opponents.

Rousey defeated Miesha Tate to secure the belt with an Armbar earlier this month. Her next opponent is likely to be Sarah Kaufman who earned a victory over Alexis Davis on the same show.
