Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was in the front row for the Mae Young Classic finals, where she watched her friend Shayna Baszler come up short against Kairi Sane.
Following the finals, Rousey spoke with ESPN about the event:
“I’m so proud of her. All the word that she’s done and put in over the years coming up through the indie scene and fighting in Japan. Everything that she’s done has been to prove to herself and everyone else that she deserves to be here. I think she really proved that to every person watching.”
WWE didn’t end up doing an angle between the two Horsewomen groups, as Sane ended up winning clean.
