We haven’t seen Ronda Rousey much at all since her disappointing loss at the hands of Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. And while we still don’t know if she plans to fight in the cage again, it looks like she’s still fighting in other ways for causes she believes in. Earlier tonight, a picture showed up on a Standing Rock protester’s Twitter account showing Rousey on site.Standing Rock is where the Sioux tribe and other “water protectors” have set up to protest the planned building of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline.
The pipeline crosses the Missouri River just above the Standing Rock reservation, and the Sioux are concerned their drinking water will become contaminated.
After a tense standoff that saw militarized police shooting rubber bullets and water cannons at civilians, the United States Army Corps of Engineers denied a permit for the pipeline to cross the river until environmental impact research was done.
