UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is probably busier outside of the cage than she is in it nowadays. The female MMA star will reportedly star in a reboot of the 1980’s classic “Road House” that starred Patrick Swayze in the lead role.
The news was first reported by Variety.com and will reportedly start filming in 2016 with Rousey taking Swayze’s role in the new movie. The role was centered around Swayze being a bouncer at a local bar in a small town in Missouri that was largely controlled by one corrupt businessman. Swayze cleaned up the bar and the town by killing the businessman at the end of the movie.
It was announced a week ago that Rousey will look to defend her title against Holly Holm in the UFC 193 main event that’s set to take place in November. The bout was originally set for January, but an injury to UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler left UFC 193 without a main event so the move was made.
