On the heels of a 34-second triumph over Bethe Correia at UFC 190, Ronda Rousey’s real-life conquests are once again generating headlines. Now, the background story of Rousey’s journey to greatness will reportedly make its way to the silver screen, with the UFC women’s bantamweight champion in the starring role.


Justin Kroll of Variety reported Monday that Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to Rousey’s autobiography, My Fight/Your Fight. Paramount has tasked screenwriter Mark Bomback with penning the film adaptation.

Bomback will also be an executive producer, while Rousey and Mary Parent will produce.

Rousey confirmed the news on her Twitter account following the release of the Variety article:

“It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the big screen,” said Parent, whose filmography includes the recent Godzilla reboot and Darren Aronofsky’s ambitious Noah.

Rousey is certainly carving out a unique celebrity profile. Her latest UFC win Saturday pushed her MMA record to 12-0, as she’s emerged as the unquestioned dominant force in women’s combat sports.

In addition to being a force in the Octagon, Rousey is no stranger to film, having appeared in action movies such as Furious 7, The Expendables 3 and recently in Entourage as herself.

The movie could be ready for a 2017 release.
