Vanessa Demopoulos Gets Tossed By Sumo Star
The rising UFC star recently took to her Instagram and shared a video of herself on the mat against sumo wrestler Ramy Elgazar.
At first, the pair line up against each other before coming to a clash. Demopoulos tried to go for a flying armbar, only to be effortlessly flung off by Elgazar.
Check out the hilarious confrontation here below.
Demopoulos has certainly been making a name for herself in the UFC as of late.
She’s currently on a two-fight win streak inside of the Octagon, turning heads with her post-fight interviews.
Demopoulos began garnering attention after her UFC 270 victory over Silvana Gómez Juárez, who she submitted via armbar.
After the fight, Demopoulos jumped into the arms of UFC commentator Joe Rogan’s arms, a clip that went viral on social media.
She then did the same thing with Michael Bisping, who interviewed her after her victory over Jinh Yu Frey last month.
The 33-year-old currently competes at strawweight and is hoping to string together a few more impressive wins, potentially earning a shot at the 115-pound title down the road.
