This was what Lesnar told ESPN (via FOX Sports' Damon Martin) on Tuesday:
"I think she's a super athlete in a weak division. I really do.
"She is a man amongst women in the women's division. I take my hat off to her.
"She's doing an excellent job at what she's doing. I don't know how she's juggling everything -- movies and this, that and the other thing, going to Brazil and kicking butt over there and doing all the stuff she's doing. My hat's off to you, Ronda.
"I'm not taking any talent away from her at all. But I think she's a super beast -- a super freak in the women's division."
Lesnar was on ESPN to promote WWE SummerSlam 2015 on Aug. 23. He will take on the Undertaker in one of the featured matches.
Lesnar also said Vince McMahon is a better promoter than Dana White, per FOX Sports.
"The business model's the same, it's identical," Lesnar said. I think Vince McMahon's better at it than Dana and that might rub Dana the wrong way."
Lesnar could be even more impressed with Rousey in the next few months.
This is because director Kevin Smith considers Rousey as a perfect fit as a comic-book hero.
"'Cause she's got a serious future as an ass-kicking Hollywood hero," Smith told TMZ.com on Tuesday.
Rousey herself said she'd like to portray Captain Marvel in an exclusive Reddit.com Q&A last week.
"Well...a lot of the good ones have been taken, but I'd like to vie for Miss Marvel," she wrote.
Rousey beat Bethe Correia in UFC 190 on Aug. 1. Rousey knocked Correia out after just 34 seconds, per MMAMania.com. She retained her UFC women's bantamweight title in the process.
Correia took to Instagram on Tuesday. She wants a rematch with Rousey:
"I was extremely criticized and judged by lack of respect due to a bad interpretation of the current champ. All that time I saw the real face of the current champ trying to pose as a saint while she always said publicly that she wanted to make me "have a meeting with Jesus" which was her true intention.
"The media never gave that much coverage. I'd never would fight anyone with the intention to kill, break their neck which is something there's no return from. I wouldn't joke about it, because wanting to kill someone is not caring about the pain their family would feel!
"So I tell @rondarousey I'm here and I'll fight for a rematch in 2016, stronger, more mature, we'll see each other again!
"I wanted to fight you and I got it. I'll get that chance again and I'll have my revenge at the right time!"
Rousey will next take on Miesha Tate. MMAJunkie.com's Matt Erickson says this might take place in UFC 194 sometime in December.
This will be the third Rousey-Tate fight. The former won the first two by submission.
Erickson says Rousey enters their next bout as an 11-1 favorite.
