ronda-rousey-19.jpgThe hits just keep on coming for Ronda Rousey.

The UFC’s women’s bantamweight champ will be the centerpiece of the upcoming Season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter” when it debuts on the new FOX Sports 1 cable network next month.

And in July, news broke of her first major movie role when action film legend and soon-to-be-costar Sylvester Stallone announced Rousey had signed on for “The Expendables 3? – which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was first to report currently is set to be a major part in the 2014 release.

Now Rousey (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has another big opportunity lined up. According to a report in Variety, Rousey is negotiations to be a part of the cast of “Fast & Furious 7,” the latest in the blockbuster franchise from Universal.

“Fast & Furious 6? earlier this year opened to nearly a $100 million weekend in May and has gone on to make more than $700 million worldwide. “Fast 7? is already set to bring back stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese GIbson and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, all of who were in “Fast & Furious 6? and “Fast Five,” and Jason Statham is set to appear, as well.

Former Strikeforce women’s featherweight champion Gina Carano had a role in “Fast & Furious 6,” which perhaps helped pave the way for Rousey to get into talks for her potential spot in the next incarnation of the action franchise.

According to Variety, “Fast 7? is planning to film starting this fall – and said Rousey will move part of her training camp to Atlanta for filming. Variety also said Rousey will film her “Expendables” and “Fast 7? parts back-to-back in order to then return her focus to her training for her December fight against top rival Miesha Tate.

Rousey and Tate coach opposite each other on “TUF 18,” then will rematch on Dec. 28 in the co-main event of UFC 168, which takes place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
