During Wednesday's ESPYS, Cardale Jones decided to reach out to fellow nominee Ronda Rousey to see if she was interested in meeting up at the sports award show, but got no response from the UFC star.
On Thursday, Rousey finally saw the tweets and responded on Fox Sports Live, saying that she would not have been able to hang out with the Ohio State quarterback as she had to get up early to train for her next fight, against Bethe Correia.
She also said she found Jones' admission that he was both attracted to, and scared of, Rousey to be complimentary, saying “I consider myself a badge of masculinity, if you can look like a man next to me, you're a real man."
Jones said he was joking with the tweets but continued to praise Rousey on Thursday.
