UFC women's champ Ronda Rousey spars with boxing champ Vic Darchinyan

Ronda Rousey works on her striking with boxer Vic Darchinyan. The sweet science Bantamweight may have been better on the feet, but Darchinyan says she was able to toss him around when they were grappling.

Check out this video with UFC women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey sparring with boxer Vic Darchinyan. Darchinyan joined Rousey in the ring at the Team Hayastan gym in Santa Monica, CA. He's an accomplished Bantamweight boxer, holding multiple titles. While Vic was streets ahead of Rousey in the ring, in the video below he talks about how the former Judo Olympic medalist schooled him on the mat.

Ronda simultaneously earned and defended her Bantamweight belt at UFC 157 with a first round armbar win over Liz Carmouche. She's now set to face Cat Zingano after the two face off as coaches for The Ultimate Fighter 18 this fall on Fox Sports 1. The official event they'll fight at hasn't been announced yet, historically it's the early December show following the season finale of the series.
