The World's Toughest Woman Confirms She Is A Complete Pokemon Fan Girl

Women's UFC champion Ronda Rousey is brutal. She is an absolute destroyer of human flesh. She once beat up another woman so quickly the entire fight fit neatly into a GIF. It's also a known fact that she is a massive, massive Pokemon fangirl, to the point where she actually moderated a Pokemon forum back in the day. In a new interview, she discusses just how high level her Pokemon nerdery actually is. Spoiler: it's pretty high.

The part when she goes into specific detail as to why Mew is her favourite Pokemon is a particular high point. Spoiler #2: it's because he is the originator of all the other Pokemon. For folks that don't want to listen to the whole thing, the Pokemon stuff starts at around three minutes.

Ronda also discusses super important topics such as Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter, Xbox vs PlayStation and what she would do if she was put in the same room as a T-Rex. All in all, this is a pretty great interview.

(Spoiler #3: Ronda is totally wrong about Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter. Just saying.)


    Pokemon fan is kind of a tautology, you don't need to say is because it's impossible to not be one.

    (MK is better then SF)

      I've tried to get into Pokemon about 5 times over the last 10 years, never managed to quite get why people play it. Keep thinking I must be missing something and give it another go when a new one comes out, but nope, not a fan.

      (But MK is absolutely better than SF)

        You're still a fan though, you just don't play it :P

        SF is to MK as McDonalds is to steak...

          Because the when done properly only one of them is all juicy and full of blood?

    My future wife can be a Pokemon in real life for all I care...ah Ronda, that smile. Also for the record I've done the whole Pokemon thing.
