Ronda Rousey has signed with William Morris Endeavor, the world's largest and oldest talent agency, with offices in Beverly Hills, New York City, Nashville, London, and Miami. Founded as the William Morris Agency in 1898, WME represents artists from all facets of the entertainment industry, including motion pictures, television, music, theatre, digital, publishing, lifestyle, and physical production.

WME Co-CEO Ari Emanuel was crucial in brokering the $700 million deal between the UFC and FOX. Emanuel is the basis for the character Ari Gold in HBO's Entourage.

Mixed martial artist star and judo Olympic medalist Ronda Rousey has signed with WME.

Rousey was the first female fighter to join the UFC, becoming its first female champion. A judoka, she has won every fight in the first round by armbar.

Rousey became the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in Judo, capturing bronze at the Summer Games in Beijing.

While male fighters and athletes have a long tradition of crossing over from sport to screen, women are less known for making the transition. Gina Carano, another MMA fighter, famously segued into acting when she starred in the 2012 Steven Soderbergh action film Haywire. She is now set to appear in Fast & Furious 6.

Ari/UFC connection. Ronda should thank Dana. Also beneficial for both parties as it will help her and not ruin any of the UFCs plans for her. Phone Post

oh, and good for her by the way! Ronda's story is a great one. And it's so early in the MMA chapter of her story.

Are you kidding? Who do you think hooked her up with the organization? It's good to be friends with DW. The more exposure she gets, the better it is for the sport. Gina coming back to fighting is inevitable.

I just talked to him and he's VERY happy his agent has taken Ronda into the fold. She will be a very rich girl in the future as a result:)

I want to see her fight Randy Couture in the next Expendables movie. Or Stallone. Or throw Arnold Schwarzenegger through a brick wall.

Stallone is super short too. If they filmed it right, she would look like a big monster.

It's hard to say because nobody can predict the future but I would agree with Dana at this point in time. Phone Post
Agreed it is hard to predict but if the William Morris agency gets her cast in a leading role you can bet your life she will get paid more than the reported 90k the ufc paid her for Saturday's fight. (Sponsorship aside) Phone Post

Gina isn't ever coming back to fighting. She's on her way to establishing her movie career, which is infinitrely easier on her face and body than fighting. She dates Henry Cavill, who will be a bonafide superstar after Man of Steel comes out. The sky is the limit for Gina, and the sky is in Hollywood.

I read she was offered a role in hunger games 3. Even if a small role, that will be a big movie to be in.
