Undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has taken the MMA world by storm since winning the Strikeforce title from Miesha Tate in March 2012.
But her sphere of influence has definitely not remained solely on fighting. The polarizing-yet-popular Olympic judoka is making a name for herself in the acting world, as well. Signed on to appear in big-budget Hollywood flicks “The Expendables 3,” “Entourage,” and “The Athena Project,” Rousey’s star is exploding like no other fighter’s has before.
Today, we get our first glimpse of her in action, as X17 Online has released the above video of “Rowdy” engaging in some road rage with the cast on set.
It seems like Rousey is becoming quite the crossover star, and with so many top-level MMA fighters on the shelf, the UFC can use every bit of her drawing power it can get. But with no news on her next fight as of yet, the allure of Hollywood may be growing stronger by the day.
That may be undeniable, as it’s clear that Rousey is in high demand. Is “Rowdy” simply biding her time before she makes the transition to full-time movie star?
