MANILA - UFC Women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has been quite vocal about her show of support for Manny Pacquiao.
So much so that "Rowdy" even took the extra step to speak the Filipino language by taking part in the "Isang Bayan Para Kay Pacman" campaign launched by ABS-CBN. And like the many people who chose to side with the eight-division Filipino world champion, Rousey believes Pacquiao's aura of prestige mainly stems from his attitude, both inside and outside the ring.
"What I love about Manny is more than just being a supreme athlete, he really is a people's champion. I see him fight, it touches my heart. It's more artistic than the paintings I see on the wall."
