It looks like UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is fully booked for the remainder of 2013, as the rising star has announced that she’s landed another movie role, prior to her fight with Miesha Tate at UFC 168.

It’s been speculated for a while now that Rousey could be cast in the upcoming “Fast & Furious 7″ film, and the 26 year-old confirmed that’s the case via Twitter.

Rousey, who recently finished coaching opposite Tate on the 18th Season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, also added a follow up, preemptive tweet to any critics:

When Rousey faces Tate on December 28th, it will mark the first time she’s fought since UFC 157 in February, when she tapped out Liz Carmouche. In Rousey-Tate 1, which took place in March, 2012, the decorated Judo competitor caught Tate with a first round, armbar to become the Strikeforce champ.

UFC 168 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and will also feature Chris Weidman-Anderson Silva II. That’s a pretty good way to close out the UFC’s 2013 campaign.
