After expressing her support to Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao before her infamous 14-second win against Cat Zingano at UFC 184, UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey visited Pacman at his training camp in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Rousey posted a photo of her and Pacquiao on her Instagram page with the caption "Truly honored to meet such a humble and genuine person. Thank you @MannyPacquiao for welcoming us into your home."

Pacquiao responded on his Twitter and Instagram accounts and thanked Rousey for her support.

In a report, Daily Mail said Rousey appreciates Pacquiao's kind-hearted nature and for her, the Filipino champ will reign supreme in his megafight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

"Pacquiao's been very, very nice to me, so I'm going to root for him," Rousey was quoted by Daily Mail as saying.

She joins a number of celebrities who have visited and also expressed support for Pacman, including Mark Wahlberg, Tim Teebow, Robert Duvall and Jeremy Lin. But Daily Mail said these other personalities do not level up to Rousey as she was the only person promised with a free ticket for the megafight.

Top Rank CEO and Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum was reportedly moved by Rousey's plan to spend her winnings to watch the fight at ringside so he gave her a "prized seat."

The support can be considered mutual between Pacquiao and Rousey as Bleacher Report said that the Filipino boxer sided with the female UFC fighter when asked if she has a chance at beating Mayweather.

"It's a very, very close fight, but Manny is a friend of mine. Hey, I got to stick up for my friends. It's not just that, but I really believe if Manny doesn't jump in and if he's just really relentless pressure and uses all of his speed, I think he's going to give Floyd an extremely hard time," Rousey was quoted by Bleacher report as saying.

 Thank you for visiting me @rondarousey and for your support. God Bless!

Fans are now very much excited for the Fight of the Century this May to find out who is the bigger fighter between Mayweather and Pacquiao.

On Wednesday, Pacquiao told members of the media at the Wild Card gym that he wants to break Mayweather's undefeated record then study the Bible with him.

"I just want to send this message to him - nothing personal. We're just doing our jobs. And after the fight, if I could talk to him, I want to share the gospel of God. I want to share to him about God, why we need God," Pacquiao said, as noted on USA Today.

During his training, the Filipino champion said he is doing well and that he is confident that he will emerge as the winner during of the fight.

For his part, Pacquiao's coach Freddie Roach said that Pacquiao is more determined to claim victory this time, USA Today added.

"Manny's attitude is really, really different for this fight. I've never seen him work this hard. He's really looking good. I'm really happy where he's at," Roach revealed.
