Former UFC Champ Ronda Rousey Set to Make Film Debut with Netflix Biopic

Ronda Rousey, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, is trading in her gloves for a script as she gears up to tell her story on the silver screen. After captivating fans with her memoir "Our Fight," which delves into her transition from MMA to WWE, Rousey is set to collaborate with Netflix on a biopic inspired by her life.

The buzz surrounding Rousey's memoir has been palpable, with interviews and reviews generating excitement among fans. While the book has received praise, it hasn't been without its share of criticism, notably from commentator Jimmy Smith.

In "Our Fight," Rousey opens up about her journey from the Olympics to UFC stardom and ultimately her decision to step away from the octagon and into the world of professional wrestling. Her departure from WWE last August marked the end of one chapter and the beginning of another, as she now sets her sights on Hollywood.

Netflix has signed on to help bring Rousey's story to life, with the former champion taking on a pivotal role in the project. While she won't be portraying herself on screen, Rousey will be writing the script, working alongside a team of screenwriters to adapt her memoirs for the big screen.

The decision to cast someone else in the role of Rousey was a deliberate one, with the streaming giant opting to keep the casting process unbiased. Meetings with potential actors to play the lead role will be taking place soon, and while there's no official release date yet, fans can expect to see the Ronda Rousey biopic hit screens in the coming years.

Rousey's foray into filmmaking is a testament to her versatility and determination to conquer new challenges.
