After two nasty losses and more than a year out of the spotlight, Ronda Rousey has likely retired from UFC. Once upon a time, this would have been a death knell for women's MMA in the UFC, but now the UFC's got an amazing crop of talent ready to get on with the show. Unfortunately, the organisation isn't doing much to help them become stars.


We already knew UFC fighter Ronda Rousey plays World of Warcraft sometimes (as a Night Elf Hunter), and the fact that the folks at Blizzard love Easter eggs, so seeing a small in-game tribute to her is really no surprise.


I've seen a lot of people contending that Ronda Rousey was "exposed" over the weekend -- that Holly Holm's kick-heard-'round-the-world is proof that Rousey was never all that good in the first place. Those people are wrong.


As you're probably no doubt aware, Wrestlemania is currently happening right now. Like, right this second. So there's still time for the show to top its best moment, but how can you beat this? Ronda Rousey just made an appearance with The Rock and basically cleaned shop whilst wearing a Dragon Ball Z t-shirt. How can you beat that?


The UFC's embedded series is great. Typically it follows fighters in the week before their fight, watching them get prepared, diet, cut weight and do whatever they tend to do in their down time. With guys like, say, Donald Cerrone, you get to watch him Wakeboard, skydive and do all sorts of extreme stuff. With UFC women's champ Ronda Rousey? You pretty much get to watch her play World of Warcraft.


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.
