Looks like Ronda Rousey won't be the only UFC women's bantamweight with an IMDB page.

The Albuquerque Journal reported on Monday that Holly Holm -- who trains at Jackson-Winkeljohn's in New Mexico -- will appear in a new film that will begin production on August. Holm's longtime boxing promoter Lenny Fresquez told the publication that fellow bantamweight Miesha Tate will also appear in Fight Valley, which was described as a female version of David Fincher's 1999 film, Fight Club -- only with a few twists and turns.

After a decorated career as a boxer, Holm had a successful debut in the UFC with a split decision victory over Raquel Pennington at UFC 184. She has since been booked to fight Marion Reneau at UFC Fight Night 71 on July 15 in San Diego.

The 28-year old Tate, meanwhile, has won three consecutive fights after losing her title bid against Ronda Rousey at UFC 168. She defeated Sara McMann in her last outing at UFC 183 via majority decision.

According to the director of photography for Fight Valley, Michael Lucas, Holm and Tate could be joined by Cristiane Justino in the film.

According to the report, Fight Valley is "basically about an underground fighting circuit where women go to settle their differences." Further, "when a character in the film enters the fray and subsequently dies, her sister comes to investigate and winds up infiltrating the circuit."
