Morning, dudes. Here’s the latest in cool news from our morning lap around the Internet on this Friday, November 13, 2015:
Fear the Arm-Bar: Humor site The Kicker has created the “Ronda Rousey Edition” of the classic side-scroller Street Fighter II. We won’t give away the ending, but let’s just say that the MMA superstar is a force to be reckoned with in her bouts against Ryu, Zangief, and Ken. “Men want to fight me—until they actually fight me,” her on-screen character says.

Speaking of Ronda: In more serious news, Rousey defended her pummeling of an ex-boyfriend depicted in her autobiography My Fight/Your Fight, saying it was a clear self-defense scenario. She told ESPN that her ex-boyfriend, whom she calls “Snappers McCreepy” in the book, took nude pictures of her without her consent and then tried to block her from leaving after she confronted him about it.

The Dude Is Killing It: Check out the Men’s Fitness interview with Billy Brown, the jacked actor who’s showcased some serious acting chops (and a serious six-pack) as Detective Nate Lahey on ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder. [Men’s Fitness]
That Awkward Moment When: Sacramento Kings center Kosta Koufous went up for a high five from teammate DeMarcus Cousins…and promptly got stood up. So Koufous high-fived himself. (If only we could always make the recovery look that smooth.)
The Sneakerhead’s Lament: The NFL has fined Josh Norman $5,000 after the Panthers cornerback wore customized red, white, and blue Adizero cleats reportedly emblazoned with the words “proud” and “brave”—and on the League’s “Salute to Service” weekend, no less. Norman has said he’s appealing the fine, and reportedly plans to auction off the cleats to raise money for troops in the Carolinas. [Sports Illustrated]
Maz Who Now?: Star Wars director J.J. Abrams dropped some more hints about Maz Kanata (played via motion-capture by Lupita Nyong’o), a Yoda-type character who apparently has a pair of mysterious—and perceptive—eyes. [Entertainment Weekly]
Speaking of Star Wars: The latest 60-second Star Wars TV spot dropped Thursday night, right in the middle of ABC’s primetime Thursday programming. Corporate synergy, ya’ll!
