UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey’s star has ascended faster than any fighter in recent memory, rivaling the likes of Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, and Georges St-Pierre as the organization’s most marketable fighter. With her popularity, however, have come countless opportunities often taking her away from the very reason she’s gone from a hungry athlete trying to scrape her way by to a magazine cover girl.
Recently Rousey was offered a role in The Expendables 3, starring alongside the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham in the blockbuster franchise. Though little is known about her part, it appears it is big enough to keep her out of the country while preparing for a December 28 title-defense against Miesha Tate.
“That was my first concern, and they’ve been extremely accommodating. I’m going to be able to move people from my camp over where I want to be at filming it’s going to be me training all the way through this. If I was going to have three jobs and train at the same time, then I can have one other job and train at the same time. Kind of like a different location, it’s going to be kind of difficult. I can multi-task, I do it all the time.”
