Ronda Rousey challenges Ric Flair's daughter to wrestling showdown

The newly-married fighter has filmed a new WWE promo with the wrestling star.

UFC star-turned-actress Ronda Rousey is planning a wrestling showdown with fighting legend Ric Flair's daughter.

The newlywed tough girl has just filmed her first pro-wrestling promo in years, talking trash to Flair's kid Charlotte as part of a street encounter.

Backed by her MMA training partners Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir, Rousey tells Flair to "name a time and a place".

"We're waiting to hear from you," she snarls as Charlotte and her fellow former WWE champs Becky Lynch and Bayley walk away.

Ronda recently called her fight posse of Duke, Shafir and Shayna Baszler the Four Horsewomen - a reference to Ric Flair's Four Horsemen wrestling group.

There's no official word from WWE officials about Ronda's new wrestling career. She's looking for a win in the ring after two successive UFC defeats.

Meanwhile, her personal life is on top form - Rousey recently wed fellow fighter Travis Browne in Hawaii. The happy couple skipped the big fight between boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and UFC star Conor McGregor in Las Vegas on 26 August (17) and headed to the groom's native state to exchange vows.

Browne confirmed the marriage news by sharing a sweet snap of himself and his bride on their wedding day.

"What an amazing day!!," he captioned the black-and-white Instagram photo of the smiling pair after the ceremony. "She is so perfect in every way! She makes me so happy! She is my other half! I Love You @rondarousey #browsey2017".

Meanwhile, Charlotte Flair's famous dad is well on his way to recovery after suffering a health emergency last month (Aug17). The veteran was hospitalised after complaining of abdominal pains and placed in a medically-induced coma.

His fiancee Wendy Barlow subsequently revealed he was in critical condition as he battled multiple organ problems.
