With the line between athlete and entertainer becoming more blurred each year, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson finds himself working alongside some of MMA's biggest stars. Having filmed Fast & Furious 6 with Gina Carano and Fast & Furious 7 with UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who better to pick a would-be matchup between the two than Johnson?
