On Monday, Ronda Rousey participated in Reddit’s AMA, where she further cemented her status as a nerd who can kick your ass. Instead of introducing herself as the UFC Bantamweight Champion, Rousey named Mew as her favorite Pokemon, revealed she’s an active World of Warcraft player, and talked about where she is in George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series. “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,” she said. 

It wasn’t all fun and games, though. Ronda took on questions about being a woman in a male-dominated sport, and she didn’t dodge the question about transgender athletes in UFC. 

Here are six things we learned from her AMA:


On her 'Game of Thrones' squad


On conquering the male-dominated UFC


On the Pokemon she'd fight


On her cheat meal

And she won’t let you insult her blue cheese.


Rousey even talked about transgender athletes in MMA.
