Rousey talks celebrity crush on Mohr Stories
Ever wonder the celebrity crush of Ronda Rousey? On the hit podcast Mohr Stories, host Jay Mohr asked that question, along with plenty of others that the MMA media outlets haven't been grilling the first-ever UFC women's champion about.
Just wrapped a podcast with UFC Champion @rondarousey . Even cooler than you think she is. Marina! More soup!

After discussing everything from sex to why Rousey has tennis balls hanging from the ceiling around her house, Mohr asked the champ exactly who her celebrity crush currently is?
Rousey replied, simply stating, "Tom Hardy."
Hardy is a film star known predominantly for his role in The Dark Knight Rises, in which he plays the masked villain Bane, as well for his starring roles in Lawless, Inception, and the mixed martial arts film Warrior.
We know, finding out Rousey's celebrity crush is hardly the most important bit of news in the MMA world today. After all, she has a big fight coming up against Liz Carmouche at UFC 157. But that didn't stop Rousey, who Mohr calls "the female Nick Diaz," from touching on other subjects when queried by the comedian, including a topic regarding fighters in the men's bantamweight division.
Mohr asked her if there was a 135 lb. male in the UFC that she could take down in an MMA bout, and the answer isn't exactly surprising.
"Bryan Caraway, Miesha Tate's boyfriend," Rousey replied. "I'd just like to take out her whole crew."
Rousey's beef with Tate and Caraway began well before her move to the UFC. She and Tate headlined "Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey" back in March, and both parties fired away on Twitter and in interviews, including Bryan Caraway, who suggested that female athletes were not on the same level as male athletes.
He also wasn't thrilled with Rousey calling out male bantamweights.
I feel like most misunderstood what I meant earlier, Ronda called me out & I would never ever hurt a woman, but girls shouldn't call out men — Bryan Caraway (@BryanCaraway) March 3, 2012
Regardless of Caraway's thoughts on female fighters calling out male fighters, Rousey continues to fire away at the Tate/Caraway crew. It would seem Rousey is winning this battle, especially considering she earned the Strikeforce title against Tate last March and became the biggest superstar in women's MMA history last.
Oh, and she parlayed that into a UFC contract, title, and main event fight. You know, just in case you were keeping score.
