UFC 168: Ronda Rousey takes training camp on location for Expendables 3 filming

Have sparring partners, will travel.

USA TODAY Sports

Think Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is going to skip out on her training camp to film scenes for her upcoming role in Expendables 3?

Think again.

"Rowdy" will be taking her team on the road as she gears up for her rematch against fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 coach and former Strikeforce rival Miesha Tate, which takes place at the UFC 168: "Weidman vs. Silva 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event on Dec. 28, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

From yesterday's UFC World Tour (via MMA Fighting):

"They've been extremely accommodating. I'm going to be able to move people from my camp over where I want to be at filming. It's going to be me training all the way through this. If I was going to have three jobs and train at the same time, then I can have one other job and train at the same time. Kind of like a different location, it's going to be kind of difficult. I can multitask, I do it all the time."

Video of her armbarring Sly Stallone ... someone make it happen.

Rousey joins fellow mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Gina Carano on the "Tinseltown" circuit. Perhaps "Conviction" can pay her thanks for the "fantastic rack" compliment, which is likely a sentiment shared by a majority of combat sports fans (male and female).

Speaking of which, Rousey has been unveiling her assets is recent weeks, as well (see the pics here).
