On November 14, Ronda Rousey is expected to headline the most attended UFC event of all time when she takes on Holly Holm at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium.

Every single stop has been pulled out in the first Embedded episode. Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger all feature as Rousey’s remarkable rise to the top of her sport is celebrated.

UFC Champion Ronda Rousey is ready to film her first lead role in ‘Mile 22’. Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, Rousey will go straight to movie shooting after she’s done with her upcoming fight with Holly Holm in Australia.

According to the Daily Mail UK, Rousey talked about being excited about her acting venture in ‘Mile 22’, especially with her as main character. Remarking how lucky she is, she reveals that right after her 15 November 2015 fight with Holm in Australia, she’ll be off filming with Mark Wahlberg. Acknowledging it as a “big step”, Rousey compared doing the lead acting role in ‘Mile 22’ is like “acting light belt to a heavyweight.”

According to Wrestling News World, ‘Mile 22’ is just one of many non-UFC projects Rousey has in line. She will also be playing the lead in the ‘Road House’ remake as well as her ‘My Fight/Your Fight’ biopic. The Athena Project is also part of her schedule and numerous shoots and guestings to boot. Wrestlemania 32 is might be trying to negotiate a Rousey appearance, but seems unlikely with her busy schedule and her UFC commitment.

Combat Press reported that Rousey may be transitioning to Hollywood soon, with movies like ‘Mile 22’ coming her way. In a recent podcast interview, Rousey said she wouldn’t to fight in her 30s. With the plethora of offers Rousey has, she can pick her film roles around her fighting career. So far, she has “wisdom to choose projects” that are with established Hollywood actors. Making films with actors like Mark Wahlberg, Vin Diesel is a guaranteed way to be a box office presence.

While Ronda Rousey’s retirement is not too near, it is clear that she will be entertaining the idea of Hollywood once she does retire. ‘Mile 22’ may just be the first step to this transition, and she has a strong actor companion in Mark Wahlberg. The film is slated for a 2016 release, with no specific date named yet.
