What’s better than kicking ass in the octagon? Kicking ass in a movie as well!

That’s what UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey will be doing, as she is to make her acting debut in The Expendables 3.

Sylvester Stallone, who will star in the film and write the script, announced the casting on his official Twitter account.

He tweeted:

Rousey will follow in the footsteps of former MMA star Gina Carano, who recently kicked ass alongside someone we all know and love — The Rock — in Fast and Furious 6.

The film, which will also star Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson and Mickey Rourke to name a few, is scheduled for an August 2014 release.
