UFC superstar Ronda Rousey’s life outside of the Octagon appears to be continuing to flourish, with the former bantamweight champion having just secured a three-movie deal with the Lifetime Network.
From the sounds of things Rousey won’t be starring in the movies, but instead will bring, “stories that reflect her passions about empowerment to the screen.”
It’s all part of a new switch in focus for the Lifetime Network that’s also seeing them hook up with other celebrities like Janet Jackson and Serena Williams.
Rousey is also still slated to appear in the upcoming ‘Road House’ remake and also in ‘Mile 22’ opposite Mark Wahlberg, though it’s believed that neither film has began shooting yet, while there’s also a biopic based on her ‘My life / Your Life’ book in the pipeline too.
As things stand, the 29 year-old is still committed to returning to the Octagon though, with the star having hinted recently that UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York City could be the landing spot for her comeback fight.
At this stage it’s unclear who she’ll face when she does return, though if Miesha Tate successfully defends her bantamweight title for the first time against Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 in July, then that would more than likely be the fight to make.
Of course avenging her brutal KO loss to Holly Holm will surely also still be on Rousey’s mind, while her long-time rival Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino is set to finally make her promotional debut at UFC 198 in May.
So, there’s still big fights waiting for Rousey, but time will tell whether she still has the desire to take them all, or if her burgeoning career in the movie business will lure her away permanently.
