Ronda Rousey Distances Further From UFC With New Acting Role
Dana White, president of the UFC, called it when he said earlier this month that Ronda Rousey is "probably done".
Rousey's recent moves into acting over the last couple years, plus her dramatic losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes in the Octagon would suggest the same opinion as White's, but now Rousey has solidified it even further.
Rousey appeared in Entourage and Furious 7 in 2015, as well as an episode of Comedy Central's Drunk History in 2016. And now, she's scored a guest role on NBC's Blindspot as a prison inmate, which is scheduled to air in May.
According to Bloody Elbow, Rousey will be playing a female prison inmate by the name of Devon Penberthy who grew up in a working class family, and is serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. She is a tough, athletic woman who knows how to fight and handle a weapon.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Rousey said that her fight against Nunes at UFC 207 would "definitely one of my last fights." She also told ESPN in 2014 that she has dreams of being the "highest-grossing actor in the world someday."
Looks like she'll definitely still be kicking arse, just not so much in the UFC octagon.
