'Rowdy' Ronda Rousey is your UFC 2 cover star

If you somehow haven't heard of "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey by now, well, you're about to. EA has announced that Rousey will be the cover athlete for UFC 2, due in spring of 2016. It will be the first time a woman has starred on the cover of the series, formerly published by THQ.

Even if you don't pay attention to the world of mixed martial arts fighting, you've probably heard of "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey - thanks in no small part to a Reddit AMA where she confessed her love of Pokemon and her World of Warcraft characters, plus subsequent videos where she confesses that she "would have gone cartoon" for Vegeta from Dragonball Z and trains while while wearing a Pikachu costume.

Oh, and the fact that out of her 12 previous matches, only three of them have lasted more than a minute. That might have something to do with her being featured on the cover too, I guess.
