Ronda Rousey will film two movies then return for Holly Holm rematch

Ronda Rousey still plans to film two movies in early 2016 before returning to the Octagon for her rematch with Holly Holm with the fight currently rumored for UFC 200 in July.

Ronda Rousey still plans to film two movies in early 2016 before returning to the Octagon for her rematch with Holly Holm with the fight currently rumored for UFC 200 in July.

UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta told media members this week that Rousey still plans to film the upcoming “Road House” remake as well as “Mile 22” with Mark Wahlberg early next year, but her desire to come back and regain the title she lost in Novemer is stronger than ever.

“I went out to see her in L.A. Had some real good conversations with her. She is, as you would expect, very disappointed,” Fertitta said about Rousey. “Distraught, to some extent. She’s never lost. She never lost a fight in the Octagon. She never lost a fight in the street. She didn’t know what it was like. Right? She is champing to be back in there.

“She made some commitments before the fight to make two movies. So she’s going to do that. Then get back to training in the Octagon.”

Fertitta has no doubt that Rousey is 100-percent committed to a rematch with Holm next year despite a budding acting career that already saw her star in a trio of films between 2014 and 2015.

Rousey has committed to the two afore mentioned movies as well as a biopic that’s being made bout her life based on the book she co-wrote with her sister titled “My Fight/Your Fight”.

Rousey’s life outside the Octagon is busier than ever, but she’s still laser focused on getting back the belt she lost and washing the bad taste of defeat from her mouth.

“She has options. But let me tell you what. Ronda is the single most competitive person I’ve ever met in my life,” Fertitta said. “If you don’t think she isn’t ready right now, she’s plotting her comeback. I don’t think anything can stop her from coming back.”

Fertitta believes Rousey’s return will ultimately prove to be the biggest single fight in UFC history and if everything works out she will rematch Holm at UFC 200 in July 2016 at the new Las Vegas arena being built by MGM properties.

As of now the fight still hasn’t come together, but Fertitta is hopeful that a deal will be done to put Holm vs. Rousey as one of the headline fights on what will likely be the most heavily promoted UFC card of all time.

“I think it will be the biggest fight in UFC history,” Fertitta said about Holm vs. Rousey 2. “We certainly believe that as a company. I think the world will be interested in a rematch because it was a huge upset. So many people thought Ronda was just completely invincible. To see her get beat like that was a shock. They want to see if she can come back.

“We’d like to make that fight happen in July at UFC 200. We’re still talking to Holly’s management team to figure out whether that works for them. We should know in the near future.”
