Ronda Rousey joins the cast of The Fast and the Furious 7

Rumors of Ronda Rousey appearing in The Fast and the Furious 7 has stemmed last August when Dwayne Johnson tweeted that he will be working alongside Rousey in the latest installment of the action flick. However, it remained as a rumor when the undefeated athlete elected not to disclose the details of the role. Rousey finally confirmed this weekend that she is officially  included in the cast of the movie. The UFC women’s bantamweight champion twitted the confirmation along with the schedule of the shoot.

“It’s finally official. After #expenables3 I’m flying to Altanta to shoot #fast7 before going back to LA for 6 week camp and defending my title.”

“&for those that doubt it can be done, put ur money where ur mouths are so my friends can finally get some decent returns betting on me to win.”

The filming is scheduled to end by mid November and it leaves Rousey with just a little over month to prepare for her title defense against fellow TUF 18 coach Miesha Tate. Despite of that, Rousey remains confident that the six week camp is enough to get her into tiptop shape. She pointed out that she has slipped some training schedules while filming for Expendables 3. Rousey also added that she has trained regularly while filming for TUF.

On the other hand, her first movie The Expendables 3 is scheduled in cinemas in the middle part of 2014. The movie will retain the same all star cast that includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Randy Couture, Jet Li and the rest of the gang.
