Holy shit, does Ronda have her hands full here. This will be the greatest fight of her life, stepping into Dalton’s shoes is an uphill battle. She is the baddest chick on the planet, so I wish her the best on this. At the end of the day, Road House is the wet dream of every bouncer in America, so the skeptics will be in full swing…


Variety Rousey thought the idea of starring in a remake was a great idea but wanted to be respectful when pursuing the project. Sources say Rousey recently reached out to Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi, to ask for her blessing to star in the remake, which insiders say Niemi gladly gave.Based on the physicality of Swayze’s performance, Rousey’s experience in mixed martial arts makes her a clear choice for the role. The project would mark her biggest job to date, since the property carries such a large following. This will be the fourth project being specifically developed for Rousey to star in, following her biopic “My Fight/Your Fight” at Paramount, “The Athena Project” at Warner Bros. and the STX action pic “Mile 22,” which has Pete Berg on board to direct with production set to start in February which will follow her next fight against Holly Holm on Nov. 14.\
