UFC fighter and actress Ronda Rousey may be a total bad ass, but over the last couple of years she's also shown that she is a total nerd as well — and we love her for it!

Whether it's her unashamed love of Dragon Ball Z (she used to have a crush on Vegeta!) or her passion for all things post-apocalyptic (she'd love to star on The Walking Dead) Ronda has proved time and time again that she's the nerdiest celebrity around.

However, if you thought we'd seen peak Rousey, think again, because I just unearthed an article from back in 2014 which contains 16-year-old Ronda Rousey's moderator profile from the now-defunct

It was way back in 2012 that Rousey first revealed she had been a moderator on the Pokémon Stadium 2 forum on GameTalk. But not only did Ronda confirmed the rumor on Twitter, and even revealed that her screen name had been 'mew182' (Mew is her favorite Pokémon)!

Then, in September of 2014 the Reddit's MMA sub revealed her entire GameTalk profile and let me tell you it's pretty much exactly what you might imagine it is:

Whoa, there's a whole load of stuff crammed in there, right? Let's break it down a little!

First all, who else never realized Ronda was in a band?! I gotta say a little part of me is upset "Blonds in Calculus" never hit the big time. She also revealed some of her favorite games, including The Legend of Zelda, Rayman, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon (duh!), Kirby and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai. Ronda also mentioned that "super serious slash 'em blood and guts games" aren't really her thing. And sorry Quest 64, she really wasn't into you either.

But what else does the profile contain? Well she lists some of her favorite books including the Ender's Game series, the Harry Potter series, The Luckiest Girl in the World, A Child Called "It" and the Lord of the Rings series. She also includes a book her mom was writing at the time titled The Ex-Apprentice, Aww so sweet!

But alongside her wish for bunny ears ("REALLY BIG bunny ears"), there's also some pretty inspiration stuff in her "philosophy on life" section, in which she wrote:

"If you screw up, don't freak out over it, just think, two years from now it will have no impact on your life whatsoever. If whatever you did will have an impact on you two years from now you REALLY screwed up, so you deserve to feel bad."

And, with an outlook like that it's no surprise that Ronda's made it so far in the sporting world. Not to mention that it probably helped her following the loss to Holly Holm in November 2015.

So there you have it! Now let's hope no one finds our online profiles from when we were 16-years-old, because it was definitely a lot more embarrassing than Ronda's!

Is Ronda Rousey one of your favorite athletes?
