Expendables 3 director: Rousey broke my rib
Ronda Rousey has been known to injure an opponent every now and then in the cage, but also recently hurt the director of her newest movie, The Expendables 3:
“I remember the first thing we shot with Ronda, I actually got beaten up”, said Hughes. “Ronda’s first time ever on camera was the scene with Sly at a bar, and she’s really super-nervous. I went up and said, “’Well, what do you do before a big fight?” And she says, “I like to spar in my room. I get that nervous energy out.” And I said, “So you need to hit something? Let’s find something to hit.” And she said, “But I want to hit you.” She was like, “Put your arms up.” And I’m thinking, “Ronda’s just going to do this.” put my hands up, and she goes WHAM! Next day, I was getting dressed and my kids were there at the time, my 7-year-old daughter said “What’s that?” And I had this huge black mark. I had a broken rib. And I said, “I got beaten up by an actress.”
Rousey said in the interview that Hughes’ claim of the broken rib is false.
“He didn’t have a broken rib! I didn’t hit anything hard”, Rousey stated.
