Fun parallel storytelling here for the UFC's upcoming fight against Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm on November 14th. Through a series of flashbacks we imagine the girls' journey to get where they are today.
From Rousey’s humble beginnings in Jamestown, North Dakota, to the rising star Holly Holm, the daughter of a preacher man in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Ronda’s mother, Judo instructor Dr. AnnMaria De Mars plays herself. And the teenage-era Rousey is played by Ronda’s real younger sister, Julia De Mars.

Even if you don't care about UFC this is cinematic and epic storytelling at its finest.
