Thunderstruck: Russian former UFC siren Aleksandra Albu flaunts curves in middle of storm (VIDEO)
Moldovan-born strawweight fighter Albu was issued with her marching papers from the UFC earlier this year after going 2-2 with the promotion in a four-fight stint between 2015 and 2019, last competing in 2019 where she was defeated by Loma Lookboonmee by split decision.
Since then though, Albu hasn't appeared to let her release from the world's leading mixed martial arts organization keep her down, and has risen to online notoriety by posting a series of sizzling snaps to her 75,000 fans on Instagram - but her latest offering is sure to be considered among her most unique.
The clip, which is shot from the rear, shows Albu wearing a skimpy bikini and appearing to shower herself under a torrential downpour.
Judging by the location tag, it seems to have been filmed in or around Moscow, and - unsurprisingly - has generated nearly 15,000 views since in just seven hours since it was posted.
Albu noted in the accompanying text, via translation: "Why can't you put 10 hearts at once? Or a hundred!!!!"
The video clip appears to have been recorded when Moscow was in the midst of unseasonably poor weather which led to extreme flooding - with some describing the city as resembling a swimming pool.
Initial estimates suggested that Moscow received around 70% of its estimated monthly rain totals in just minutes of the thunderstorm. The downpour caused chaos in the Russian capital, with numerous lightning strikes reported and more than 60 flights cancelled.Also on rt.com VIDEOS show defiant Russians SWIMMING in Moscow’s flooded streets as ‘super rain’ turns roads into canals
The extreme weather came just days after Moscow recorded extreme temperatures of 36 degrees celsius which, judging by Albu's Instragram snaps at the time, appear to have compelled her to show off some equally revealing swimwear.
Despite her release from the UFC, Albu's Instagram profile appears to suggest that she has continued training - with many fans enquiring as to where her next fight might take place.
But regardless of whether we see her in the cage or elsewhere, it appears that Albu has a knack for captivating her fans with her sizzling naps - come rain or shine.Also on rt.com Russian Instagram favorite Aleksandra Albu among fighters cut from UFC roster in spate of departures
