Some big news from Facebook Gaming today as the company has signed a new deal with Ronda Rousey to stream on their platform. Her inaugural stream will take place at 3pm PT on Tuesday, February 18th, with 100% of her proceeds from her first stream to Australian bushfire recovery efforts. The details of the deal aren't really known, nor do we have an idea of how long the deal will last or how frequently she'll broadcast. But if you're into seeing Ronda play video games, this is the perfect stream for you. Here's a quote from Rousey on her new deal.
"Gaming has always been a huge part of my life, and I can't wait to share that passion with my millions of fans on Facebook Gaming. Through my streams, people can hang out with the real me, not the 'character' version of myself they're used to seeing, though the 'Rowdy One' can't always be contained! In recent years, games have been a great way for me to keep my mind active when my body is too sore or tired to move. One of my favorite gaming memories happened when I was 11 years old, and encountered an Articuno on Pokemon Blue for the first time. I was awestruck and thought she looked like an angel. Looking back at that same image now, I'm amazed how powerful our imaginations can be and how gaming encourages us to imagine what our reality could be instead of just accepting it for what it is – a skill that has helped me in my fighting and entertainment careers countless times," said Ronda Rousey.
