Here’s Ronda Rousey Training In A Pikachu Costume

I think I’ve found the most adorable thing on the internet! I had no prior knowledge that MMA fighter Ronda Rousey was totally obsessed with Pokémon, but it turns out she is. I guess it makes sense that a competitive fighter would, as a child, get totally enthralled with a game about competitive training, as Rousey details in the interview below:

But Kotaku unearthed a clip from Sports Center of Rousey training in an actual Pikachu costume, which is just about the best thing I’ve seen all week. The best part is that when she throws a punch in the costume, it looks like Pikachu is slapping a mannequin. Well, no, the best part is that Ronda Rousey has been filmed training in a Pikachu costume, period.
