What a couple of adorable nerds

MMA fighter Ronda Rousey has talked about her love of the Pokemon series before, but in a new interview with Conan O’Brien, Rousey confessed to being a fan of another major gaming franchise: Warcraft

Rousey joined O’Brien on his show last night to talk about her upcoming fight and her nightly World of Warcraft sessions with Furious 7 co-star Vin Diesel.

“Every night after filming we would go over to his place and set up computers on opposite sides of the room and he’d say, ‘Okay we’re going to go to this dungeon and we’re going to to do this,’” Rousey said.

Rousey also confirmed that Diesel played as a druid in the game, whereas she chose to play with a Night Elf hunter. As they played, however, Diesel recommended Rousey play as a rogue character, so the fighter got a Blood Elf rogue to play alongside with him.

Rousey told Conan that she enjoyed playing games like World of Warcraft because she could interact with people online without them knowing who she was, making it one of the rare opportunities she had to just engage with people without having to put on any kind of front

Fast 8, the next installment in the franchise is due out April 14, 2017.
