We posted yesterday about Ronda Rousey's championship diet and today we're back to hear what the champ has to say about love and reproduction in her ESPN interview with Allison Glock. You should read the whole thing, it's possibly the best interview Rousey has even given.

First Glock gets her talking about favorite TV shows (HBO's Vice) which lead to talk of Bill Maher who Rousey describes as having "that Richard Gere, grey-haired sexy look" and the mysterious appeal of Ryan Gosling prompts Rousey to wonder "Why is a margarita delicious? What can I say? It just f------ is, man."

Then Rousey reveals some of her romantic history.

"Any guy that I've ever really been into, I never liked him at first. I grow into liking people. And I'm not into guys from afar. People are always asking me about my celebrity crush, and I'm like, I don't know. I can say people are cute. Brad Pitt is a sculpture of a man, but I'm not squealing "Oh my God!" because I don't know him. I have to know somebody to have a crush on him."

And when asked about whether or not she plans to have children, Rousey answered, "I'm an ovarian goldmine. I can't waste these genes."

Rousey defends her UFC women's Bantamweight title against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on August 1.
