Ahead of her UFC 190 bout with Bethe Correia, Ronda Rousey has predicted that after “she beats her next two opponents, she’s going to make a movie”

The statement comes off the back of potential future opponent Miesha Tate’s destruction of Jessica Eye at UFC Chicago, an event that saw TJ Dillishaw defend his title as UFC Bantamweight champion by KO’ing Renan Barao.

Speaking of Tate’s fight, who Rousey has already fought, the champion said.

“I didn't see it. Dana (White) was texting me about it because I was about to go train at the time, but I'm not surprised," Rousey said. "She's a great competitor and a great athlete. I've always said amazing things about her as a fighter."

"Here's pretty much the plan," Rousey said. "I'm going to beat up Bethe, then I'm going to take a couple of weeks to rest, and then I'm going to go beat up Miesha, and then I'm going to go to like Thailand or wherever we decide to film ("Mile 22") and prep for like a month, and then start filming for like eight to 10 weeks, and then go beat up the next chick.

"That's pretty much my plan."

Ronda burst on the scene as a superstar when she downed Tate to win the Strikeforce title in 2012 and then reached an even bigger status after beating her a second time in the UFC in 2013.

The is possibly the biggest star in the UFC only to be challenged by Conor McGregor, since Jon Jones’s sacking from the organisation.
