What is there not to like about people getting tore up from the floor up and trying to accurately tell a story?

For those not not familiar with the Comedy Central show, Drunk History, it does just that. Guests get properly drunk (I'm sure there is an attendant on hand to verify, much like a Guinness World Record attempt), and try to tell stories about historical figures while actors bring it back to life.

If that's not enough to reel you in, Ronda Rousey will appear on tonight's episode as one of the reenactors.

Holds record for fastest beer pour in the UFC.

“I didn’t get anything but positive vibes,” Drunk History creator, Derek Waters told MMAjunkie. “Her attitude was so happy and funny. Everybody wanted their picture taken with her, and she was so sweet about it. I don’t have a bad thing to say about her.”

She'll be playing another no-nonsense lady, Gallus Mag; a 19th century, beer-slangin' bouncer at a bar called The Hole in the Wall. Oh yeah, she also bites off the ear of her knitting partner, Kat Dennings.

Yeah. You heard that right. Straight bites her ear off.

“When I first heard about this story and someone biting an ear off, I just thought, ‘Who would be the coolest person we could get to do that?'” Waters said. “Luckily, Ronda was a fan of the show, and so she immediately said, ‘Yes,’ which made us so, so happy.”

Rousey will look to return to form at on December 30 when she fights Amanda Nunes for the UFC bantamweight title. After this, I'm sure the referee that night will be watching closely if they find themselves in a clinch.

The full episode of airs tonight at 10:30 pm EST, but you can watch the Rousey segment here.
