UFC Ronda Rousey

Hollywood, here she comes! And apparently, UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (pictured) will be coming at a “Fast and Furious” pace.

According to Variety, Rousey has started negotiations to join the cast of “Fast & Furious 7.″ It is believed to be a “major role.”

The film is expected to start shooting this fall in Atlanta. If Rousey lands the spot, she would move her training camp to the ATL to prepare for her December 28 title defense against bitter rival Miesha Tate at UFC 168.

If this deal comes to fruition, it would mark the second movie gig Rousey has scored in as many months. In July, it was announced the “Roudy” one will join the “Expendables 3″ cast.

In February, it was reported Rousey was also offered a role in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the sequel to box office sensation “The Hunger Games.”

Earlier this year, Rousey signed with William Morris Endeavor talent agency. Her powerhouse representatives have already started to pay big mainstream dividends.

Enjoy Rousey while you can, UFC. It appears the blonde bombshell is destined for the silver screen.
