You’ve likely heard Ronda Rousey’s name a lot over the past few days. After all, the UFC fighter did beat Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds at UFC 190 over the weekend, returning the “don’t cry” barb her trash-talking opponent had walloped her way before the match even started.
And while the powerhouse is still riding out her victory, she’s got something else to celebrate: a starring role in her very own biopic. Because who better to reenact some of her most infamous fights than Rousey herself?
The film will be based on Rousey’s New York Times best-selling book, My Fight/Your Fight. Her meteoric rise to fame is the focus of her autobiography, but few specifics are known about what details will make it into the movie. What we do know is there’s plenty to tell, from starting out as the youngest competitor of her kind to earn a spot in the 2004 Olympics in Athens to becoming a worldwide sensation just a decade later in a largely male-dominated sports landscape.
You don’t have to worry about Rousey’s acting skills either. She’s already had scene-stealing roles in The Expendables 3, Entourage and Furious 7, and is set to star in the upcoming action-thriller Mile 22. So while some are already dubbing her the female Rock, we’re pretty sure this fighter is beyond compare.
Are you eager to see Ronda Rousey star in her own biopic, collegiettes?
