Ronda Rousey Dressed Up As A Death Knight At BlizzCon

The UFC star walked the show floor in a World of Warcraft outfit.


UFC star Ronda Rousey loves World of Warcraft. Last weekend was BlizzCon, the annual celebration of all things Blizzard. So what did Rousey do? She and her UFC fighter husband Travis Browne dressed up in WoW outfits and hit the show floor.

They went as Death Knights, and their cosplay is pretty excellent. They also got to be among the first in the world outside of Blizzard to go hands-on with the just-announced WoW expansion Battle For Azeroth.

Rousey caught up with Uproxx at BlizzCon and said she is really excited to try the new races in Battle for Azeroth. But she sounds even more excited about new mounts. "I'm a mount collector; mount or die," she said. Rousey once spent $1,300 on WoW cards for the chance to get a rare mount, but unfortunately for her, it didn't work out.

Last year, Rousey spoke about how she played WoW with Vin Diesel to unwind during the filming of Furious 7. Rousey is not the first celebrity to cosplay at BlizzCon; in 2015, Halloween and Freaky Friday star Jamie Lee Curtis walked the show floor as an undead Forsaken character.
