Ronda Rousey has expanded her brand past mixed martial arts, acting and modeling, with the news that her memoir will be released in 2015.
It was announced on Tuesday by the Associated Press that publishing company Regan Arts has acquired the rights to release “My Fight/Your Fight.” The book will be co-authored by Rousey and her sister, Maria Burns Ortiz.
With a history that already includes a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, as well as undefeated records in both Strikeforce and Ultimate Fighting Championship, it’s safe to say Rousey has a story to tell.
“Everyone has their own fight,” Rousey stated in a press release obtained by MMAFighting.com. “Through my journey to become the greatest fighter in the cage, I learned the concepts to conquer every battle outside of it. Hopefully readers can learn the same lessons I did -- without having to take as many punches in the face.”
With an appearance in “The Expendables 3” already under her belt, Rousey is currently slated to star in the films "Furious 7" and "Entourage" next year. Combined with her scheduled UFC women’s bantamweight title defense against Cat Zingano at UFC 184, it looks as if 2015 could be Rousey’s busiest year to date.
