With a good number of months to go for the Season 4 roll-out of “Orange is the New Black,” fans can’t stop talking about what the new season will have in store. The rumors and spoilers about the upcoming season keep pouring-in, but is it true that star Ruby Rose is going to give UFC a try?
Fans may be unaware that Ruby Rose is in fact a UFC fan and a mixed martial arts enthusiast herself. Rose had earlier leaned towards boxing and mentioned that her godfather was a world champ.
The reason for converting from boxing to being a mixed martial arts fan, you ask? It is none other than Ronda Rousey.
Ruby Rose shared with UFC.com, “I was always into boxing. My godfather was a world champ and then I competed in boxing and that was kind of always my be all and end all, but I think Ronda (Rousey) has literally been the single reason why I’ve converted to the UFC.”
As noted by Fox Sports, Rose was one of the many celebrities who extended their support to the Champ via Twitter when Rousey took on Bethe Correia at UFC 190.
Rose who had always been crazy about boxing is now so much into UFC that she even made an appearance as a special guest at a UFC event in Las Vegas. She was already present in Las Vegas Dj-ing over the weekend.
The “Orange is the New Black” star also admitted during the interview that she was not to happy about Rousey’s next fight happening in Melbourne on November 14, since the city happens to be her hometown and she probably won’t be able to make it.
She said while laughing, “I’m so mad. I live in Melbourne for the greater part of 25 years of my life and then I finally move to L.A., which is so close to Vegas, and you guys have some of the best fights ever, they’re in Vegas and then she decides to go and have this huge fight in Melbourne. She’s doing it to spite me, clearly.”
