UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey decided even before winning on Saturday at UFC 190, that she would be leaving her title belt in Brazil.

She felt a special connection with the Brazilian people:

“Bethe did have one thing right. She said that the Brazilian people deserve to have the belt left here. So I’ve decided that after I win it, I’m going to make sure that when I have the belt, I don’t take it home with me. I’m going to give it and make sure that it stays someplace in Brazil as my gift.”

We now know where Rousey will be leaving the strap. She’s chosen Instituto Reação, which is a judo school run by Flavio Canto. The school received a special surprise check from Rousey a while ago and now they will be home of the UFC belt. Pretty cool.
