Everyone has a celebrity crush, right? Even college football players, who are sometimes considered to be celebrities themselves, kind them falling for a big star every now and then.
That was the case for Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones at the ESPY’s Tuesday night when he admitted to having a crush on UFC Bantamweight Champion and arguably the baddest woman on the planet, Ronda Rousey.
According to Big Ten Network, Jones tweeted out what some called “thirsty” messages to the winner of the 2015 “Best Fighter” and “Best Female Athlete” awards. I wouldn’t call them “thirsty”, he was just proposing his affection for Rousey.
Well, she responded.
I honestly can’t blame Cardale for crushing on Rousey. She likes professional wrestling (check her shirt in the video), she is an avid fan of Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon, and she can whoop my ass anytime she wanted to. She’s a 90’s kid’s dream girl.
