Why she might be annoying: nicknamed her ‘Hottie.’
    Rowdy’s initial reaction to her loss? This Insta sampling: ‘I see through your fake sweet act now - you're getting your ass kicked tomorrow, and I'm really going to enjoy the beating I give you #andSTILL.’
    Perhaps if she hadn’t been so taken by the mainstream media junket and all that (as was Gina Carano), Rousey might have proven harder to defeat.
    While her father is a constant at her matches, her mother rarely is.
    Hard to believe someone with her battle savvy is prone to teary fits.

Why she might not be annoying:

    As the last of three children, and lone girl, born to a priest – specifically the Church of Christ – she was (unsurprisingly!) nicknamed ‘The Preacher’s Daughter.’
    Physical contact activity ran in the family — in her case, it was aquatics and the high school soccer team.
    Her aerobics instructor – a man – also became her kickboxing instructor.
    Despite some clear muscle tone, she does not appear ripped.
    She will not celebrate a victory until her opponent is confirmed not to have suffered any needless or lasting adverse effects.
    She is a partner in her father’s real estate company.
    Her parents – still on good terms after their divorce during her senior high school year – were not the stereotypical stage parents.
