UFC champ Ronda Rousey, one of the toughest female fighters on the planet, goes weak in the knees when she hears one name: Fedor Emelianenko. She credits Emelianenko for inspiring her to join the UFC in the first place. Do I want to have 57 of his babies? Its true, Rousey told media members in Los Angeles this week. I think hes married, though, so Im not allowed. Its a side of Rousey fans dont normally see. After she pounded Miesha Tate at UFC 168 last month, Rousey, 26, wouldnt even shake her competitors hand. But one mention of her now-retired 37-year-old Russian crush apparently forces her to drop her guard. He was my first exposure to MMA, Rousey said. A couple of years ago a friend of mine showed me a Fedor Emelianenko highlight. It just blew my mind. I thought it was the most amazing thing Ive seen in the whole world. He has always been my image of what MMA is supposed to be. I will always be not-so-secretly in love with Fedor Emelianenko. The undefeated (8-0) Rousey said hes the only big MMA star she hasnt met with. If I did Id probably turn 19 shades of red, she said.
