"I was so unimpressed with the whole presidential campaign [in 2012] that I picked whatever third party I saw," she says. "But I'm really pulling for Sanders this time. I hope it works out."

In a separate CNN interview, Rousey got serious about her opposition to the Trump campaign: "I just really wouldn't trust the guy with running my country, that's all," she says. "I don't want a reality TV star to be running my country."

Needless to say, Ronda Rousey is feelin' the Bern.
