Ronda Rousey, total badass and MMA champion, has been making serious headlines this past year for her role in Furious 7, releasing her New York Times bestselling autobiography My Fight/Your Fight, and most recently for knocking out Brazilian mixed martial artist, Bethe Correia, at UFC 190 in just 34 seconds earlier this month.

Not only is Rousey a killer fighter, but as we've seen on multiple occasions she's proven to be an absolute sweetheart as well. For instance, when she paused this open workout session last month to spend some time with a little fan.

Well, it would seem that we're far from hearing the last of this ultimate fighter. It was recently reported by Variety that Paramount Pictures is picking up the rights to adapt Ronda Rousey's autobiography, My Fight/Your Fight, for the silver screen.

While there's still no production start date at the moment, the film already seems to be in good hands. Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Wolverine) is on board to adapt Ronda's book and sit as executive producer alongside fellow producers Mary Parent (Godzilla, Pacific Rim). Parent said of this upcoming project:

It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the bigscreen.

Not only has Rousey supplied the content for the film with her many life experiences, but she will also star in it and help produce. Considering it's her story they're telling, I'm glad she's going to be so involved!

With a few movie titles like The Expendables 3, Furious 7, and Entourage already under her championship belt, let's hope that My Fight/Your Fight will help push Ronda Rousey into a new, bright chapter of her career.
