Ronda Rousey Takes Active Role in Standing Rock, Dakota Pipeline Protest

January 25, 2017

It came to light on Tuesday that former UFC champion Ronda Rousey was against the completion of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines, for which U.S. President Donald Trump signed executive orders to clear the way. Continued reports detail that she is doing more than posting about the protests on her social media accounts. Rousey traveled to Standing Rock Indian Reservation to lend her personal support to protesters.

According to a report by TMZ Sports, Rousey and fellow Olympic judo athlete Pauline Macias traveled to North Dakota to deliver supplies. They reportedly brought fresh fruit, vegetables, bread, tents, and wood-burning stoves for the protesters, who are contending with the elements of a cold North Dakota winter.

“I had one of the best road trips of my life with Ronda Rousey to deliver supplies to the protesters at Standing Rock!” Macias posted to her Instagram account. “This was such an incredible experience, and I can’t thank my friend enough for allowing me to be a part of it!”

The protest at Standing Rock primarily focuses on the potential for issues with the pipeline to contaminate drinking water and destroy sacred tribal sites.

Rousey reportedly tried to keep the trip somewhat under the radar, as she is still taking time out of the spotlight to recover from her second consecutive loss in the Octagon and consider her next career move.

  • dgs

    If you can’t win fights I guess you do the next best thing, become a clueless millennial SJW!

    You go Rousey, maybe you can get the cop/s who will pepper spray your dumb a$$ in an armbar.

    • Shadow

  • himmler adams

    Squaw mole face Rousey is now more of a joke in the UFC after the humiliations. and KO’s. Rousey needs to smoke em peace pipeline to stop white man from ruining tepee grounds.

  • himmler adams

    Lousy Rousey might as well take up teepee living with that wooden totem pole Travis dimwit Browne.

  • Benoit de Dam

    just compare the number of death by guns in your great country and the number of death by terrorism….it’s just sad how dumb you can be. Stop believing blindly Fox news….Anyway, I stop wasting my time with you, fat a**, enjoy your burgers and your 250 pounds of fat…just a little tip for your health, my fat buddy : try to walk at least 3 mns in a row everyday without chewing some candies….

      250? Wow! Actually rather smaller! 70″@190, military and local community -service. Sir, in my lack of exercise, even my leg days I utilise anGolds Gym 25lbs. Best on whilst completing each: 3 sets of 7-10 reps for both- chins and dips, a total 6 sets with minimal 42 to 60 repetitions every other day. I’m in the Vegas area and easy to locate. I have no reason to lie, fabricate, speak with hyperbole or deceit. Not big by some of my own sons buddies’ standards. Just being honest and challenging your sad assumption I and my average mates are all puffs, pot bellied pigs. I was in security forces USAF-6 years then our county/city law enforcement. Physical threat of un-armed, after failed verbal pursuasion, I pad, pencil, pen, swift kick to the tothe groin, stomach or put to the chin like an upper cut, then follow up strikes or to the ground for control. Adversary friends or associates will leave him alone, groundless for a wee-bit. Usually an extreme hatred of cops and an assumption Caucasian folks cannot partake successfully in surviving and overcoming a physical confrontation by certain minorities; mental, emotional and physical preparation and full on follow through upon initiation has alone hurt, halted, injured and deterred many attacks in this region. Southern Nevada has a very large officer, fire fighter and military participation readiness population with none being spotlighted based as heavy handed, negectfull or plain criminally ballistic jerks. Research your assumptions of us; We do have many at 6’5″ and 260 whom are versed at being professional, sweet big bastards and destroyers of very bad folks with the results of a nice decent disposition or a negative outcome . Good luck on changing your hatred and blindness
