    It's not just about the money. By getting into movies Rhonda not only expands her brand and increases her sponsorship opportunities and marketability but also she'll be sitting on a movie set with the legends of action film for a guaranteed payday instead of in a sweaty gym for the chance to maybe defend her title.
    Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.

    The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.

    HATES the new MMANEWS forum. Bring back the dark background.

    I don't find Rousey particularly interesting. I think Carano would act--and fight--circles around her.
    But then again, I didn't find the expendables [or the A team] to be worth the time it took to watch them, so meh.

    At this point in her career, I doubt Rousey is going to make more acting than she would fighting.

    She isn't close to making Jennifer Lawrence movie money, in the same way that Tecia Torres isn't close to making Ronda Rousey fight money.

    I think the biggest issue for me is taking away the focus fighters need to stay at the elite level. It was the kiss of death for an already-distracted rampage.

    exactly.

    Cool. I doubt she'll have a very big role though. Probably about as much screen time as Li or Norris in the second movie.

    True but she can get more fame which can lead to other opportunities. Once Hollywood swooped up Carano she hasn't looked back. Hell she had a major role in the latest Fast and the Furious. She got money and increased fame without having to get punched in the face.

    Rhonda has an opportunity to break down another barrier by being the only female in MMA to have a lead role in multiple block buster films.

    Rousey should do the movies imho.
    Anderson Silva:
    Best Fighter on the planet.
