Watch: Ronda Rousey documentary clip shows life before fame
Wednesday March 2nd, 2016

Ronda Rousey's life before becoming a UFC star will be shown in an upcoming documentary titled In Her Father’s Eyes.

The film is due to be released later this year and dates chronicles the last seven years of her life and her rise to fame.

In a clip released on Wednesday by USA Today, Rousey gives a tour of her home in Venice Beach.

“I’m surprised we didn’t invent a new strain of cholera,” Rousey says in the video.

Tate: I’m going to ruin Holm-Rousey rematch

Filmmakers Peter Antico and Gary Stretch have been working on the film for several years.

“We met Ronda in the years before anyone knew her name,”​ Antico said. “We really tried to capture who Ronda is and we had the advantage of spending a lot of time with her. She is a sweet-natured and genuine person and we saw her evolve into this famous athlete before our eyes.”

Watch the clip from USA Today below:

Rousey was knocked out and suffered her first career loss at the hands of Holly Holm (10–0) at UFC 193 in November. Holm signed a multi-fight contract extension at the beginning of the year and will fight Miesha Tate in her next bout at UFC 197​. The outcome of that match could effect the scheduling of a potential rematch against Rousey.
