J.J. Watt shows his support of Ronda Rousey ahead of UFC 193

BY Damon Martin • November 14, 2015

Expect a lot of celebrities and athletes to start sending messages in support of Ronda Rousey ahead of her title defense at UFC 193 on Saturday night, but arguably the most dominant defensive player in football was ahead of the curve.

Houston Texans superstar J.J. Watt sent out a picture on his Twitter account showing his pick for the UFC 193 main event.

Needless to say, Watt is definitely rooting for Rousey in her bout against Holly Holm from Melbourne, Australia.

Watt is not only a fan of Rousey's but they also share a similar endorsement deal with Reebok and even starred in a commercial together earlier this year.

Rousey will look to defend her UFC bantamweight title for the seventh consecutive time on Saturday when she faces the former boxing world champion in the main event.

This will be Rousey's third title defense in 2015 after mauling both Cat Zingano and Bethe Correia in consecutive fights earlier this year.
