Ronda Jean Rousey or "Rowdy," to many, is an undefeated mixed martial arts champion, whose deftness in the ring and fit physique has parlayed into the film industry, earning her roles in The Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage. Yet video game fanatics and those who play Taichi Panda would most likely know Rousy by her screen-name Randa. As an ex Pokemon forum moderator and active player on WOW, not to mention an ardent fan of Game of Thrones, there's another side to the UFC titan rarely touched upon by the media. In Reddit's latest "AMA," Rousey opens up for questioning. She starts by introducing her "Do Nothing Bitch" campaign which looks to solve women's body image problems, before being asked a slew of questions ranging from her personal achievements, diet, and which historical figure she would fight if given the chance. Check the excerpt below and head to Reddit for the full Q&A.
Do you sometimes wish your fights would last a little longer than just a few seconds?
No because the shorter my fights are, the more fights I can have. I only have a finite amount of fight time, and I'd like to fight as long as possible.
What's your go-to hype music before a fight?
I have complete silence before I walk out before a fight. No talking in the locker room, no music, cellphones on silent. If I hear a ding from you taking a video you're gonna get your own private Rowdy Glare.
Favorite male fighter to watch in the UFC?
Demetrious Johnson. I think he's the most well-rounded and I feel like I'm watching one of the later episodes of Dragon Ball Z when you only see one second of action going on between them disappearing 'cuz they're going so damn fast. I wouldn't be surprised if rocks start levitating around the ring because of all the energy emanating from it. Might Mouse vs. Dominick Cruz was one of my favorite (and most under-appreciated) fights ever.
What's your favorite cheat meal?
buffalo wings naked with chunky blue cheese and extra hot sauce on the side.
What do you think about the pornstar calling herself "Ronda ArouseMe"?
It's funny I used to hear that in high school sometimes! At least some girl somewhere is paying her bills with it now.
