Video: UFC champ Ronda Rousey believes she can become a female version of 'The Rock'

If that's the case, she better start hitting the weight room.

"I never thought that being an action movie star was in the cards for me. My agent kept telling me, 'You're going to be the female Rock.' Then I started to believe it could be a reality. I don't half-ass anything. If I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it to be the best in the world at it. A lot of actresses appear in action movies, but there aren't any female action stars. I love Angelina Jolie, but ... it's about believability for me. Milla Jovovich is one of my favorite actresses -- The Fifth Element really opened my eyes, and the Resident Evil franchise was amazing. So definitely a mix of Milla Jovovich and The Rock is what I'm going for. People love chick fights. They love tough, empowered women. And there is a demand. People just don't know it."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey (via Hollywood Reporter) has some time to contemplate her future in Hollywood now that she's taking some time off to deal with a couple of injuries. In fact, the mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar -- undefeated in 10 trips to the Octagon -- has already been tearing up the silver screen with high-profile roles in Expendables 3 and Entourage, among others. So what's next for "Rowdy" besides another title defense? Well, she still has The Athena Project and those dreams of transitioning to WWE ... which would put her close to her goal of becoming a female version of pro wrestling superstar-turned-Hollywood phenom Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Sounds like the clock is ticking on her combat sports career. Hurry up, Gina!
