Ronda Rousey gets into the video game streaming biz
The Ultimate Fighting Champion has signed a streaming deal with Facebook
Another popular sports competitor will be participating in the video game industry, specifically the streaming business. Ronda Rousey is known for her success in MMA and professional wrestling, and it seems to be that she is taking strong personality to the video game scene in her new streaming channel, “The Baddest Stream on the Planet.” This former UFC bantamweight champion partnered up with Facebook Gaming, and yesterday she confirmed this upcoming new channel.
The streaming activity is scheduled to begin in just a few days on February 18, and all the initial revenue will be going directly to aid the recovery from the bushfires in Australia. “Gaming has always been a huge part of my life, and I can’t wait to share that passion with my millions of fans on Facebook Gaming,” Rousey said in a statement to TMZ. “Through my streams, people can hang out with the real me, not the ‘character’ version of myself they’re used to seeing, though the ‘Rowdy One’ can’t always be contained.”
According to Rousey, she has had a lifelong passion for video games, and she used them as a good resource when she had to spend long hours recovery from sore muscles after excessive physical activity. “In recent years, games have been a great way for me to keep my mind active when my body is too sore or tired to move,” said Rousey.
This 33-year-old woman left the UFC after losing two fights against Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes, which caused her to lose her title. Then, she decided to join the WWE to become the first woman to headline WrestleMania alongside Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair last April.
