Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm were almost fighting in the weigh-in for their UFC 193 clash earlier tonight.
The undefeated UFC Bantamweight Champion is defending her title against fellow US fighter Holm tomorrow night in Melbourne, Australia.
And she gave the Aussie crowd at the weigh-in a taste of what’s to come in the Octagon tomorrow night as she squared up to Holm.
Immediately after taking to the scales, Rousey walked straight towards Holm – herself undefeated, but over nine fights – and pushed her fists into her opponent’s face.
But Holm didn’t react well to that – and both fighters became locked at the arms before UFC president Dana White split them up.
The moment was caught on camera:

It sets the fight up perfectly, with Rousey hoping to take her dominance over all women in the UFC to another level tomorrow night.
Rousey hasn’t gone beyond 90 seconds in any of her last five fights and will be hoping to do the same against Holm tomorrow night.
