It's no secret that UFC star Ronda Rousey and actor Vin Diesel are big-time gamers, but now we know a little bit more about their habits. Appearing on Conan last night, Rousey talked about how she and Diesel would unwind after shooting Furious 7 by playing Blizzard's MMO, World of Warcraft.

"Every night after filming we would go over to his place and set up computers on other sides of the room and be like, 'Okay, we're gonna go to do this dungeon; we're gonna go do this,'" Rousey recalls, adding that Diesel plays a Druid. He recommended that Rousey play as a blood elf Rogue, something she did and went on to enjoy. Check out the segment below.

Rousey also talks about how she likes to play World of Warcraft in part because she can have "genuine" interactions with people in the game since they don't know who she is.

Briefly discussing her other video game habits, Rousey says in the clip, "I was a socially awkward kid, so I've been playing Pokemon for like 19 years." Earlier this year, Rousey said she wants to play Samus Aran in a Metroid movie.

For his part, Diesel portrayed the main character in the Chronicles of Riddick video game series.

In other news, Rousey confirmed in November that her UFC 207 matchup on December 30 against Amanda Nunes is "definitely" one of her last bouts. Rousey, 29, didn't offer any specifics on what she'll do after retiring from fighting, but said she's doing a lot of knitting to prepare for the end of the world.

Rousey was a perfect 12-0 before being defeated by Holly Holm in November 2015. She and Conor McGregor are on the cover of EA Sports UFC 2, both having lost their latest fights after being named the cover stars.
