Report: Ronda Rousey in negotiations for 'Fast and Furious 7' role

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Ronda Rousey's road to Hollywood seems to taking a fast track.

The UFC women's bantamweight champion already has a role in "The Expendables 3."

Now, entertainment industry trade publication Variety reports that Rousey is in negotiation for a supporting role in "Fast and Furious 7."

The report went on to state that Rousey would shoot her scenes in "Expendables," which is being filmed in Bulgaria, and "Fast and Furious," back-to-back. While Rousey will continue MMA training on both sets, the idea is that the acting would wrap up in time to start her full training camp for her Dec. 28 title defense against Miesha Tate as the co-main event of UFC 168 in Las Vegas.

At UFC on FOX 8 in Seattle, Rousey told reporters she doesn't anticipate having trouble juggling her acting and fighting careers.

"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," Rousey said. "Kind of like a different location, it's going to be kind of difficult. I can multi-task, I do it all the time."
