Meet Ronda Rousey –– The Llama!

September 15, 2015 2:01 am by BJPENN.COM News

You really know you’ve made it when you get a llama named after you.

That is the pinnacle of success. If you don’t have a llama named after you then get the heck out of here.

But really, a llama in Portobello Resort, in Brazil, was named after the UFC bantamweight champion. There was a naming-contest which allowed people to vote on a name for the llama. Among the options were famous soap opera stars from Brazil and others, but Rousey ended up winning out.

So now there’s a llama named Ronda Rousey.

Here’s what an official from the resort told MMAFighting:

“Usually when an animal is born at the Portobello safari, an animal which has a slightly longer gestation, we select the two most talked names in that period as a tribute. In this case, Ronda was the name chosen by guests.”

I’m sure there will be a Conor McGregor llama in the near future.
