Women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was mum about the film project she’d be working on before her next fight following her 14-second UFC 184 win over Cat Zingano on Saturday.

“I don’t know what I’m supposed to say about it yet. Yes, I’m going to make a movie. But I’m not going to say anything about it,” said the 28-year-old women’s titleholder during the UFC 184 post-fight press conference.

    Goes to show you don’t need to know how to act or have a personality to get into Hollywood.

    It’s a shame that so many awful people in this world are so successful.

    Talent be damned, people with that kind of attitude do not deserve success in any way, shape or form.

      Its because of her attitude that she has success. It drives her to accomplish her goals.

      • Sadstrangelittleman

        Ok… Having a crappy attitude, a chip on your shoulder and generally being an awful person is what drives you to success! Awesome to know that’s what it takes.

        Glad to hear that some people like her awful persona – I’ll stick with positive, grateful, humble fighters who are successful
