Couture eager to work with Rousey, film or fighting


UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is set to multitask like a beast, simultaneously training for her fight with Miesha Tate at UFC 168 on Dec 28, and filming for The Expendables 3 in Bulgaria.

Rousey's role in the Sylvester Stallone scripted film is not minor. with, according to MMAJunkie, appearances in over 20 scenes, with 35 lines of dialogue (plus presumably a great deal od beating up and killing bad guys). Rousey plays an athletic bartender named Luna, something she is familiar with as, following her medal-winning effort representing the USA in Olympic Judo, Rousey worked as a bartender, before determining upon a career in MMA.

As difficult as it might be to move a training camp to Bulgaria and sandwich it between shots, co star and UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture is prepared to help.

“I would be happy in both the film genre and the fight front to work with Ronda," said Couture. "She’s a very exciting fighter, hugely talented, and she’s got a bright, bright future ahead of her... Hopefully time will permit and we’ll have a chance to get on the mat, and we’ll see if she can Armbar me.”

coming from randy it's kinda creepy.  he's not a generous guy, he's not fan friendly anymore (he used to be). and he's dated pigs. he's in and out of various pig pens, more than a guy his age should be.  now suddenly with ronda he wants some mat time.  yeah i'll bet.  maybe they can make a fighting machine, with super powers showcasing an inability to speak convincingly on camera.

Couture is an absolutely awful actor. Embarrassing really. There's a reason he gets like 6 lines in Stallones movies. He really just needs to retire all the way around and fade away. Rhonda's gonna make a bad actress as well. Ugh...her voice is like nails on a chalk board. So yeah, good call Stallone!
