Ronda Rousey Dishes On Pokémon and Dragon Ball Z Once More

UFC star Ronda Rousey held an “Ask Me Anything” crowd interview on Reddit today, and almost immediately, she discussed a ton of nerdy stuff. 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.


Ronda was also asked whether she would prefer to train with Goku or Vegeta in a hyperbolic time chamber. Given that she’s known to have a crush on the prince of all saiyans, her answer is probably not surprising:

Vegeta. For sure. Goku is such a fucking goodygoody that he’d be fun to be friends with but I’d get annoyed hanging out with him after 2 weeks, let alone after a whole year. I’d imagine that Vegeta and I would have many an interesting debate. Probably not about politics but maybe like societal shit.


Ronda on her favorite Mortal Kombat character:

I would always play as Princess Katana ‘cuz in the Sega version you could press down and punch up vs the computer and get to the fifth guy from the top with all flawless victories because the computer wouldn’t learn to throw you from the floor until it was almost the end.


And here’s Ronda Rousey’s favorite Game of Thrones character:

I always get super stoked when I see it’s a Daenarys (the ANTI D.N.B.) chapter, and would get regally bummed when I saw it was a Catlyn chapter. But for some reason my heart is always Team Stark.

My sigil would be a Mew with Vegeta hair.

Amazing. I now await the internet’s inevitable photoshop of Mew x Vegeta (which, let’s be real, probably already exists somewhere).
