It's not Dirty Dancing.

She's already trained for the part.

Ronda Rousey is an unstoppable Ultimate Fighting machine and actress who is set to star in the reboot of Road House. The original 1989 movie was a defining role for Patrick Swayze, who played an intellectual bouncer that can beat the hell out of any adversary. Rousey is a perfect fit for the part since she recently knocked out her last opponent in 34 seconds. This will be her first lead role, following some appearances in Furious 7, Entourage, and The Expendables 3.

Rousey acknowledged how important the part is to Swayze's legacy on Twitter, and humbly promised to do her best honoring his memory.


A fighter, an actress, and a patriot that makes dreams come true for young marines. She truly lives by the three rules of Dalton (the character she'll be reprising): "One, never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected. Two, take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice."
