While much of the chatter around the UFC these days is surrounding Conor McGregor and his spat with Dana White, another one of the sport’s biggest superstars is making headlines for what she’s doing outside of the octagon as well.
Ronda Rousey, who hasn’t fought in the UFC since her stunning defeat to Holly Holm in November of last year, has now signed a three-movie deal with the Lifetime Network.
According to Deadline, who first reported the news, Rousey will not be starring in the films but will produce the three “stories that reflect her passions about empowerment to the screen.”
While Rousey hasn’t formally commented on the news and hasn’t said much in recent weeks regarding her UFC status, the move appears to put her further away from returning to the UFC any time soon; especially since she is still expected to star in a remake of “Road House” as well as another film with Mark Wahlberg.
Neither of those films have begun production yet according to Fox Sports, but filming was expected to begin in early 2016.
Bryan Altman is, for some reason, an unabashed fan of the Rangers, Jets and Mets. If he absolutely had to pick a basketball team it would be the Knicks, but he’d gladly trade them for just one championship for any of his other three teams.
