What a Beyoncé-Ronda Rousey Friendship Would Look Like

Read more

Over the weekend, Beyoncé introduced those not familiar with Ronda Rousey to a do-nothing bitch. MMA champ Rousey coined the term do-nothing bitch to explain why she refuses to just get by on her looks. During the UFC 190 Embedded videos to promote her fight with Bethe Correia, she said, “I have this one term for the kind of woman my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a do-nothing bitch.” During Budweiser Made in America festival, Rousey’s words played before Beyoncé performed “Diva.”

“A kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by somebody else,” Rousey said. “That’s why I think it’s hilarious when people say my body looks masculine or something like that. Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than fucking millionaires, doesn’t mean it’s masculine. I think it’s femininely badass as fuck because there’s not a single muscle in my body that isn’t for a purpose. Because I’m not a do-nothing bitch.” When we first heard Rousey say these words, we were throwing up ?. Dave Sholler, the UFC vice president of public relations, said that Beyonce’s team contacted them to license Rousey’s speech, according to MMA Fighting. Naturally, we have assumed that Beyoncé is a hardcore MMA fan, who even watches the UFC 190 Embedded videos.

In response to Beyoncé’s shoutout, Rousey geeked out and posted an image of Beyoncé’s “Diva.”

And though that’s the extent of their back and forth (for now), we have already envisioned what a Bey-Rousey friendship would look like (perhaps inspired by a few too many wine coolers and replays of Amy Schumer and JLaw dancing on stage at the Billy Joel concert).

Here are five things that would most definitely happen:


"Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" Dance Off

Beyoncé has long moved on from this dance, but for new bff Rousey, she’ll bring it back. Rousey kind of has the hands down already?



Playing Pokemon games

Rousey hasn’t been shy about her love of Pokemon, and during her recent Reddit AMA, she even explained why she prefers psychic types above the rest. “But that being said, fairies seem pretty badass these days but I gotta go with the original 151 types and psychic was my fave because Mew is my jam,” she said. Obviously, she would share her love of Pokemon with Bey. After all, Rih recently dressed up like a Pokemon gym leader, so this might be the new style wave.


Yacht life

Because this is how Beyoncé likes to spend her free time. And Rousey’s already got the yacht lewks on lock:


WWE Tag Team

Rousey has been itching to get back into Wrestlemania. She recently said, “I loved being in Wrestlemania and will find a way to get back in the squared circle I just have no clue when. And any real wrestling fan would want to be surprised anyway.” A Rousey-Bey tag team would be epic – and as we all saw at Bey’s Super Bowl performance a couple years back, the woman is ripped and can probably take you down:


Buddy Cop Comedy

Both Beyoncé and Rousey have shown an interest in acting. So a buddy comedy would be the next obvious step for the two.
