If you haven’t heard of MMA Fighter Ronda Rousey by now, stop what you’re doing and look her up. Seriously: on top of being an excellent fighter, the talented badass is a fan of all things nerdy. When she’s not in the ring training for her next fight–that will probably last less than a minute–you can find Rousey obsessing over World of Warcraft, Mortal Kombat, Pokémon, Dragon Ball Z, or even dreaming of playing Captain Marvel. She discussed all of this and more during her recent Reddit AMA, which we’ve pulled our favorite quotes from just for you. Ready? Read!
She Wants to Play Captain Marvel
When asked which superhero she’d play she responded:
I honestly have to say I really like that idea. She’s already shown her acting chops in Furious 7 and Expendables 3, and is set to appear alongside Mark Wahlberg in 2016’s Mile 22. With the Captain Marvel film slated for release in 2018 and still lacking a female star, it wouldn’t be completely out of the realm of possibility for Rousey to slip into the role. Now, that doesn’t mean it’s likely, but it is fun to think about.
Katana is her favorite Mortal Kombat Character
Anyone who knows Rousey is aware of her affinity for video games. Considering her profession, it only makes sense that she digs Mortal Kombat. When asked who her favorite Kombatant was, she replied:
Princess Kitana was always my favorite, so I definitely get where she’s coming from. But, I for one think she needs her own character. If NetherRealm Studios ever decides to add a professional fighter as one of their guest DLC characters, my vote goes to Rousey.
Daenarys Targaryen is her favorite character from Game of Thrones
Rousey is a big Game of Thrones fan. When asked who her favorite character from the books was and what her sigil would be, she responded:
If Daenarys “Mother of Dragons” Targaryen isn’t your favorite Game of Thrones character, you’re clearly doing it wrong. Rousey, however, is doing it right all the way down to the Pokémon/Dragon Ball Z themed sigil. Also, now I really want to see what Mew looks like with Vegeta’s hair. Somebody, please make this happen!
She’s a big fan of World of Warcraft
When asked what race her mage was, she responded:
This isn’t the first time she’s talked about WoW. In fact, the screenshot above is actually from the UFC Embedded vlog. She kicks off one of the episodes talking about her love of the game. Check it out here.
She talks about Pokémon all the time
When asked by GameTalk which fighting-type Pokémon she’d battle in the octagon, she responded:
Boy, that girl knows her Pokémon. Though Machamp and Lucario are the first that come to mind for me, Rousey went with Throh, who made his first appearance in Generation V.
She was also asked whether she would rather fight 100 Mewtwo sized mews or 1 Mew sized Mewtwo. She replied:
She also loves Dragon Ball Z
When given the choice between Goku and Vegeta and asked who she’d rather train with in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, she replied:
Also, when asked who her favorite male fighter was, she revealed that it was Demetrious Johnson, and made yet another reference to DBZ.
