Ronda-Rousey-9559-MMA-Awards-2012When UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey goes after something, she goes full steam ahead.

On the heels of Sylvester Stallone’s announcement that Rousey would join the cast of Expendables 3, Hollywood trade publication Variety reports that the champ is in heavy negotiations to follow-up Expendables 3 with a role in Fast & Furious 7.

If the deal gets finalized, Rousey would line up alongside Fast & Furious stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for the movie’s seventh iteration. The most recent edition of the franchise, Fast & Furious 6, has been wildly successful, racking up box office receipts of more than $770 million worldwide.

Shooting for both Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7 would take place this fall and wrap before Rousey’s fight camp for her rematch with Miesha Tate at UFC 168 on Dec. 28. Rousey would also continue to train while on-location for both films.

Rousey and Tate coach opposite each other on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate, the eighteenth season of the reality series. The TUF 18 premiere is set for Sept. 4 on the new Fox Sports 1 network, which launches next week.

    Hope they also sign her for “Above the law 2” “Out For Justice 2” and “Under Siege 3”

    • Werdoomb

      except Fast and Furious is a solid franchise whereas those are sheeeeet.

      in any case, guess who is mad over this news…you guessed right! Big Nose Tate.

      • Dragon Kid

        Fast n furious has been shiiiiiiitt since part five & onwards.

        • Baller31

          Actually since part two

          • Dragon Kid

            Part 4 wasn’t as bad, it actually had good character development and most scenes felt believable compared to Tokyo Drift, Fast 5 & 6.

      Lmao. Unfortunatley she’d outshine Segal in those films! He needs some TRT to get back in shape :<

      • Sensei_jr

        oh young grasshopper you still have so much to learn. Let me quote a great man, you know him as Hollywood Steven or Mr Seagal to me he is simply Master or Sensei or both and what he would tell you is the following “A good front kick is all about technique, TRT wont help you nor will a good diet”

          D*** riding is not a form of transportation. Have a good day, sir!

          • Sensei_jr

            would u suggest public transportation?

  • Word has it she is about fighting more then the movies and that movies was Gina Carano’s thing. I just hope she doesn’t exhaust herself and properly times everything around her training. 7 pro fights and she’s making movies. The olympic backround is what really did it but this should put a lot of people on notice that if you do good in your fights and have charisma you can end up having a few movie roles and your picture in the magazine.

      I dont see Cyborg getting any movie roles…

      • Would not at all be surprised if she was offered a movie role. I could see her doing it. Rhonda is on top of the world right now Olympic medalist, champion mma fighter in the UFC, magazines, movie roles.

        • s

          Cyborg is not getting a movie role, unless she plays a monster in a Brazilian film.

  • al57

    okay Rousey is a star but can someone please KO Rhonda so she can be counted out forever?

  • al57

    Big Nose Tate wants a movie role

  • Erik

    This has to be the most successful parlay of “office hot” into a multi-platform career in the history of mankind.

  • drkdisciple

    Guess this will her her additional excuses not to fight Cyborg ,she will be too busy with her acting career lol

  • al57

    Please let Cyborg fight Rousey and end this big mouths career.

    • r

      It may end her fight career, but I’m afraid she is not going away. Get used to her.

      • al57

        Once Rousey loses and gets choked out or KO’d then it is over. Rhonda will be 200bls in 10 years and that mole will be 6 inches big.

        • s

          UFC will always replay her fights and tout her as the first women’s champ and one of the all time greats. She is already going to be in the UFC hall of fame. No amount of weight or mole growth can get rid of her.


    She will lose soon, it always happens after going Hollywood.

  • Triggerman99

    So is she going to fight Carano’a character in the movie?
    Wait……did Carano’s character die in part 6?
    I’ve actually never watched any of these movies……

  • Tony

    My goodness. I haven’t seen anyone so gassed up in a very long time. #corny

  • solo

    IMO Fast 6 was a disaster. It did make alot of money but the movie sucked. I dont see how Fast 7 wont be also, even with Rousey and Statham in it.

  • al57

    Cyborg has to fight Rousey at 140lbs and end this crap. Fans are starting to hate Rousey.

  • al57

    Big Nose Meisha Tate to star in an ant eater pelican gone wild video.

  • al57

    The world is starting to hate Rhonda Rousey as she makes fans vomit. Big Nose tate ain’t much better nor is the girly Brian Mr. tate Caroway.

  • al57

    Carano looked like a fat cow on screen around 200lbs.

  • al57

    Gina Cowarano is waiting tables in Malibu weighting 190lbs. Rhonda will soon be in a trailer court where she belongs.

  • al57

    Rousey needs to get permanent laryngitis

    • Rence

      dude, dont hold back, tell us how you really feel

  • al57

    Give Tate’s nose a movie role.

  • al57

    Rousey is fast becoming the Al Sharpton of the UFC.

  • al57

    Rouseys chest looks like two fried sunny side up eggs.
