UFC women’s bantamweight superstar and future Hall-of-Famer Ronda Rousey might not be fighting in the Octagon any time soon (or maybe ever), but fans of the hit television show Blindspot can catch the Olympic judoka on the upcoming May 3rd episode. Rousey’s management team announced her guest starring role on the show this past February with a press release describing her role:
“Rousey will be playing DEVON PENBERTHY: a female prison inmate who grew up in a working class family from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and is serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. She is a tough, athletic woman who knows how to fight and handle a weapon.”
Earlier today, Ronda released a clip of one of her scenes, a fight sequence, via her Instagram account.
Ronda recently made headlines when she announced her engagement to her boyfriend of nearly two years, UFC heavyweight attraction, Travis Browne. The former champion has been silent on what her next career step will be, but the promotion’s president, Dana White, opined that she’ll not be returning to MMA action. Rousey’s last fight, against Amanda Nunes, saw her dealt a second, straight loss, the only two of her career.
