Ronda Rousey Supports Bernie Sanders

Ronda Rousey may be undefeated as a UFC fighter, but she definitely feels the Bern.

That's right: Bernie Sanders can count on the MMA superstar's vote come November 2016, according to Rousey herself.

"I'm voting for Bernie Sanders, because he doesn't take any corporate money," Rousey told Maxim on Monday. "I don't think politicians should be allowed to take money for their campaigns from outside interests."

And booya — there you have it. But what if Sanders fails to get the democratic nomination?

"If he doesn't win against Hillary, then I'll probably vote for a third party again," Rousey told the magazine. "To be honest, in 2012 I was against both candidates and so I just picked any third party because I thought if more people voted for third parties then they'd have to take third parties seriously."

Just don't try to politically pigeonhole Rousey — you might be surprised.

"I voted for Roseanne last time," Rousey said. "Mostly I went in to vote for all the state and local things. I was so unimpressed with the whole presidential campaign that I picked whatever third party I saw, and I saw Roseanne and thought, 'That's awesome.' But I'm really pulling for Sanders this time. I hope it works out."

And if it doesn't, Rousey and Sanders would make a perfect duo for #TrueDetectiveSeason3.

What a time to be alive.
