Ronda Rousey has made a big name for herself both in the ring and in Hollywood over the past few years. She recently made an appearance on Drunk History alongside 2 Broke Girls actress Kat Dennis, and the two got into a bit of a rough and tumble for a segment on the show. In fact, Ronda Rousey was tasked with playing a drunken brawler in New York who bit off another drunken lady's ear. The result is gory gloriousness, just in time for Halloween. Check it out.
The story that Drunk History was recounting is one about Gallus Mag and Sadie the Goat. If you don't know much about Sadie Farrell aka Sadie the Goat, she was a gangster leaving in the fourth ward in New York in the latter half of the 1800s. According to stories told at the time of her gangster activity, she had a longstanding feud with another woman named Gallus Mag, who reportedly enjoyed biting people's ears off. One night she got into a fight with Sadie and proceeded to do just that. If Gallus Mag looked anything like Rousey in real life, you would think people would think twice before getting into a fight...
Drunk History has made a name for itself over at Comedy Central, and because of this, it has been relatively easy for the series to get some big names to come on board and film segments for the series. The show nabbed Ronda Rousey to play the ear-biter and Kat Dennings to play the other gangster and the two have bonded in the meantime. Ronda Rousey and Kat Dennings even knit together now; we're not kidding.
While Ronda Rousey has been busy with gigs like Drunk History and signing on for the Road House remake, the MMA fighter has not been fighting in quite some time. In fact, she's pretty much stayed away from fighting since taking on Holly Holm and losing in November of 2015. Recent reports have indicated Rousey has been training with Olympic boxer Mikaela Mayer in recent weeks, getting ready for the UFC 207 fight this December. While the Drunk History segment aired this week, it should be noted that it was filmed some time ago, so it's not like she's taken time away from training to do awesome, but in the scheme of things frivolous, stuff.
If you'd like to see other big guest stints on Drunk History, new episodes of the Comedy Central series air on Tuesday nights at 10:30 p.m. To find out what shows have yet to premiere this fall, check out our fall TV schedule.
