Ronda Rousey always wanted to be this iconic video game character

Ronda Rousey didn't always strive to be one of the most feared fighters in the world. The former bantamweight champion revealed to Gamespot that she would love to star in a movie based on the popular '80s video game "Metroid."

But why that video game specifically? Because the lead character -- Samus -- is one of the first female stars in video game history. But video game players didn't know they were playing as a female character until she removed her helmet and suit at the end of the original game.
