- UFC women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey recently finished working on her first two feature films, "The Expendables 3" and "Fast and Furious 7" and it looks like she's been signed to her next two already. According to a report from Variety, Warner Bros. has locked Rousey in for feature roles in the upcoming "Entourage" movie, as well as "The Athena Project." Though Rousey admits she's excited for those jobs, she's remaining adamantly focused on her next opponent, Sara McMann.
"I'm extremely excited about those, but I'm in camp right now and I try not to even focus on those things," she said. "'Entourage' will be filmed next and the other is at least a year away. There's a big gap where I can fit some more fights in. I'm a fighter, not an actor. It's cool to have another career to be excited about. That's what happened after the Olympics. I didn't have anything. You have a short shelf life in MMA and I don't want to be done without options."
Rousey takes on fellow Olympian McMann this coming weekend at UFC 170.
- Former Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren was infamously snubbed a shot in the UFC by Dana White, who said Askren needed to go get more experience under his belt in other promotions before he could be considered UFC-caliber - despite the fact that he is 12-0 against some of the best competition outside of the UFC. So, it's understandable that Askren got upset and called White out over Twitter when he learned that Patrick Cummins had been called up to the UFC 170 co-main event opposite Daniel Cormier.
"@danawhite so I haven't fought anyone, but a guy who is 4-0 and opponents comb. record is 9-19 gets an immediate co main fight," Askren wrote. "Lets hear the real reason. Didn't a former @BellatorMMA fighter to come and prove he is the best in the world! #fatbaldmansegoistoobig"
Askren is currently signed with ONE Fighting Championship, but there is no news currently as to who he may face in his first fight since leaving Bellator.
