Ronda Rousey Is The Most Badass Nerd Ever

UFC star Ronda Rousey held an “Ask Me Anything” crowd interview on Reddit today, and almost immediately, she discussed a ton of nerdy stuff.  Quickly getting down to business and letting everyone know why she is the Internet's favorite person right now.  So favorite that people are doing stuff like this:

Which to be clear, she would love, being a huge DBZ fan.

Here are some of her best answers.

From the onset, the AMA had a good start—here’s how Ronda introduces herself in the post.

My favorite Pokemon is Mew and I used to moderate a Pokemon forum. I’m an active player on WOW and a Mage named Randa on TaichiPanda – I’m on the 3rd Game Of Thrones book and will shank a bitch who tries to give shit away about the series cause you watched the show already.
Better yet, Ronda Rousey kept talking about Pokémon all throughout her AMA. Here’s what she said when asked if she would rather fight 100 Mewtwo-sized Mews or 1 Mew-sized Mewtwo:
1 Mew sized Mewtwo, ‘cuz everyone knows that even though Mewtwo has better stats than Mew, 100 Mews totally overcome that.
If she had to select a Pokémon to fight in the octagon, however, her choice would be a little different:
Throh - because he’s the Judo Pokémon and would challenge me the most :)
Rousey went on to talk about a few other things, too. When asked who her favorite male fighter was in the UFC, she chose Demetrious Johnson. The reason? He reminds her of DBZ.
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.

Just go read the whole thing.  Then enjoy your dreams tonight where you and her sit on a beach together, trading Pokemon over a discussion of the best Mortal Kombat characters.

It will be wonderful.
