Ronda Rousey still fresh off her armbar victory over Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, is now signed for a role in the upcoming Expendables 3 movie. Writer and star Sylvester Stallone made the announcement on Tuesday evening on his official Twitter account.5740313_orig

Hopefully this doesn’t interfere with any of her other commitments, such as her explosive rematch against Miesha Tate at UFC 168 in December or the taping of The Ultimate Fighter.

Some aren’t on the bandwagon when it comes to fighters venturing into film, especially during a contract term. Examples such as Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, who landed a role in the film The A-Team, having delayed a planned main event for UFC 107 in Memphis due to his commitment for the film. This left a bad taste in the mouth of UFC President Dana White and since then White has adamantly questioned whether or not fighters should pass on the money they get for fighting for the money they would gain from film.  Of course, his opinion is just a bit biased on the matter.

When it comes down to making a living for one’s self, who can blame them? The money to be made as even a top UFC athlete pales in comparison to the money made when having a leading role in a successful hollywood franchise.

Details on how extensive Rousey’s role will be inn the film or when her shooting is set to begin have yet to be released, but assuming she can continue her undefeated and virtually unscathed winning streak in MMA, it’s not anticipated that there will be too much conflict between obligations.

What you think?  Should fighters venture into film / entertainment while under contract with a fight promotion?
