Rousey to guest star on NBC series

February 22, 2017

MMA Junkie reports that Ronda Rousey will be back on television guest starring on the NBC crime-drama series “Blindspot.”

Rousey will play a female prison inmate.  The backstory of her role here:

Rousey will be playing DEVON PENBERTHY: a female prison inmate who grew up in a working-class family from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and is serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. She is a tough, athletic woman who knows how to fight and handle a weapon.

Payout Perspective:

Maybe we are seeing Rousey’s next career taking shape.  Despite losing this past December, her Hollywood agency is still seeking opportunities for her outside of the Octagon.  It will be interesting to see whether or not her last two fights and her shunning the spotlight will negatively impact her persona as she moves away from fighting.

    She loss twice, all the greats lose except Floyd. She will be ok, casuals still consider her a bad ass female. However, I think she will be back in the cage because of WME and it’s an easy payday.

    If Floyd fought in mma, he would have plenty of losses.

    Also, I remember a guy named Rocky Marciano never losing in boxing.

    This is pretty significant, because it shows she still has a very lucrative acting career lined up.

Got something to say?
