Vin Diesel's daughters are years way from dating, but the Hollywood megastar is already taking steps to ensure that both of them will be able to take care of themselves against the opposite gender should the need arise.

During his conversation with Uproxx, Diesel revealed that he enlisted the help of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rosuey, to train his seven-year-old daughter in Judo.

And young Hania Riley is already an orange belt, thanks to "Rowdy."

"First of all, I feel sorry for anyone that has to (date her). I wouldn't want that on my worst enemy because I'm just that kind of dad. I've been thinking about this since the day I cut the umbilical cord and because of that I made a decision early on that I was going to do everything in my power to empower her to handle it herself. Because of her ‘auntie' Ronda Rousey, she is now an orange belt with stripes in Judo. I'm dealing with it early. I'm creating a beast and I want her to be able to say 'no means no.'"

Rousey and Diesel struck up a friendship during filming of "Fast and Furious 7."

It's a friendship that apparently remains strong, as the queen of MMA is doing her part to make sure the Diesel children can protect themselves.

If all else fails, anyone who dares cross the line with Hania or baby Paulina, well, they'll find themselves answering to papa Diesel and "auntie" Rousey.
