UFC Champ ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey To Star In Movie Based On Her Autobiography

Christian Datoc Audience Development Manager

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey has endured many hardships on her path to greatness — all of which are detailed in her autobiography “My Life/My Fight” — but now, it seems like everything the UFC women’s bantamweight champion touches turns to gold.

Or at least, that’s what Paramount Pictures is betting on.

The Hollywood studio officially acquired the rights to Rousey’s story on Monday and, according to Variety, plan on producing “My Life/My Fight” with Ronda playing herself in the titular role.


Though she’s most famous for beating the snot out of the 12 opponents she’s faced in the Octagon, Rousey is no stranger to the big screen. She has previously starred in “The Expendables 3,” “Furious 7” and most recently played herself in “Entourage.” (RELATED: Ronda Rousey Defends UFC Title, Knocks Out Oppponent In 34 Seconds [VIDEO])
