UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was rumored for movie roles after signing a deal with William Morris Endeavor talent agency earlier this year.
Now, as she completes filming on The Ultimate Fighter, Rousey has secured a role in a major-motion picture.
Sylvester Stallone confirmed on Twitter late Tuesday that “Rowdy” will appear in “The Expendables 3.” The film stars Stallone, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jackie Chan and former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture.

The film is expected to be released in 2014, and has yet to begin any filming.
As for her fighting future, Rousey will face Miesha Tate – her coaching opponent on TUF – at UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva 2 in December.
