Ronda Rousey has an obsession with Mew from Pokemon
Ronda Rousey may be the most intimidating woman in the entire world inside the Octagon. But there was a time when the undefeated UFC women's batamweight champion didn't seem much more than a harmless, Pokemon-loving nerd.
In a recent interview, among other topics, Rousey revealed her plans for life after retirement and her childhood love for all things Pokemon, particularly her obsession with the character known as Mew.
“Mew is the originator of all the other Pokémons… Mew is the original one and [all the other Pokémon] came from that one. And, you couldn’t catch Mew in the original game. You had to use the lavender town…. I actually went to the mall for those Pokémon events, those little tournaments to get me a Mew. I wanted Mew so bad. I like waited in line with all the other nerds for hours. I wanted to get me a Mew, and a Mew certificate of authenticity that I taped to my wall.”
Rousey gets what she wants, obviously.
