On Friday, Ronda Rousey dedicated her UFC 190 fight against Bethe Correia to Rowdy Roddy Piper, who died on Thursday after suffering a heart attack. He was 61.
The wrestling legend was also the inspiration for Rousey’s nickname, “Rowdy.”
Rousey wrote in the post:
“Thank you for the name…. And so much more…. Will do it justice and do you proud tomorrow…. This one’s for you Roddy….”
Many other members of the wrestling world also posted in honor of Piper.
