Ronda Rousey is making a name for herself in Hollywood. The UFC champ has kicked her way into the testosterone-filled boys club, starring in films like "The Expendables 3," "Furious 7" and now, "Entourage" -- but just because she's gone Hollywood doesn't mean she's gone soft.
Just ask Michelle Rodriguez, Rousey's sparring partner in "Furious 7." Rousey and Rodriguez went head to head -- in heels and Herve Leger dresses, of course -- and the result was one of the most epic action scenes of the entire franchise. Rodriguez has a history of throwing punches with bad-ass female fighters in the "Fast" films. In "Fast and Furious 6," she and MMA champ Gina Carano threw down in a London Underground station.
So, who should be Rodriguez's next fierce opponent in the eighth "Fast and Furious" film, which is rolling into theaters in 2017? We asked Rousey at a recent press day for "Entourage," and we're 100 percent down with her awesome selection.
"Joanna [Jedrzejczyk]. She's a chick who just won the 115-pound belt," Rousey said. "She's really tiny and skinny, but she's such a little ninja! I think it would be a such a cool addition -- someone who looks really unassuming. I know I look good in a Herve Leger dress, but I also look like I could still kill you in it, and Joanna doesn't!"
So, uh, let's make this happen immediately, Universal.
