Dolphins are some of the most gorgeous, majestic and lauded members of the sea kingdom. So I guess makes sense that Ronda Rousey would compare herself to one, and you have to see how she went about doing it.
The former UFC bantamweight champ sat down with NFL star and New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on a show called “Face 2 Face” by Draft Kings. The episode had the two interview one another, give some humorous insight on some of the random things going on in their lives, and breaking down some hypothetical questions.
The two were talking and the question of, "which animal do you identify with most" came up. Here's what she had to say to that:
“The animal that I most identify with, I wouldn’t say identify with but would want to be if I had to pick an animal is a dolphin, but for a couple reasons.
“This isn’t directed at you, I’m just saying, in general that, I think dolphins are one of the few species on earth that has sex recreationally. And, they have really complex social systems and they’re really sweet to each other, ya know? Dolphins, like, kinda cuddle and caress each other. I don’t know, it’s just I watch the documentaries.
“That lion sh*t is mean, okay? That’s like a really terrible relationship and I don’t wanna be in a lion relationship. Like, ‘Hi, I’m the new guy in town, I’m going to kill your babies and f*ck you in the forest.’ Like, what? No, I don’t want that, I want to be a dolphin.”
Beckham Jr. had to retract on wanting to be a lion after Rousey’s comment and said that he would like to be something like a great white shark if he had to be an animal.
I'm not entirely sure why these two want, so badly, to end up in the ocean. But I guess, maybe in an afterlife, this will go down.
