Ronda Rousey Thinks Vin Diesel’s Daughter ‘Has The Attitude Of A Fighter’

Ronda Rousey

Female MMA fighter Ronda Rousey is in the news after commenting on actor Vin Diesel’s daughter and her ability to “really make it happen” when she gets a bit older — Diesel’s daughter is presently 7-years-old.

Rousey told TMZ Sports that Vin’s daughter, Hania Riley, “could really make it happen” and that she’s looking forward to giving the youngster, who is trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and judo, some tips.

We could really make it happen!

Ronda, like Hania, is also trained in the arts of judo. The MMA fighter became the youngest judoka in the 2004 Olympic Games when she competed at just 17-years-old. The same year, she took home the gold at the World Junior Judo Championships held in Budapest.

I’ve only really seen her beating up on her dad and giving me tips (…) I’m looking forward to giving her tips.

While Hania, who is one of Diesel’s three children, may have to train more before she can call herself a martial arts master, Rousey believes she “definitely has the attitude of a fighter.” And at a young age, that’s what you really look for, according to the world’s first UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.

I think she definitely has the attitude (to be a world beater), for sure (…) and that’s what you really look for at a young age, not exactly the skills that they have, but the kind of attitude they have. And she definitely has the attitude of a fighter.

While Rousey and her signature armbar have broken through into the otherwise male dominated world of UFC, she’s also making moves outside of the octagon as she ventures into the world of action packed movies. Her initial foray into movies kicked off last year with her role in The Expendables 3.

The 2007 silver medalist at the World Judo Championships has a long list of achievements under her belt. In addition to being the first U.S. athlete to bag two Junior World Medals, she’s also the first American to win a medal in women’s Judo, which wasn’t added to the international games until 1992.

With Halloween just around the corner, Ronda has her fingers crossed that men out there are going to dress up as her for the pagan holiday, as the Olympic medalist told Rolling Stone that she’s “looking forward to seeing some guys’ takes” on her.

The little girls are really adorable and it’s really flattering to see that. But, man, if there are some guys dressed up as me, I think that’ll be the most amazing (…) I haven’t seen any photos of that yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing some guys’ takes on me. Don’t wax the chest – just go all out.

What do you think, is a Ronda Rousey Halloween costume the way to go this year?
