Oh and Ronda Rousey is OK too, check it out!

“How (Weidman) carries himself, he’s just awesome.”

“Besides Chris, I guess for the girls, everything Ronda Rousey’s done is amazing.”

“I know the way she carries herself is slightly different than the way I would carry myself, but she’s incredible in everything she’s accomplished. It’s amazing for a girl, and she’s done some awesome things.”
