Ronda Rousey, a bronze medalist in judo at the 2008 Summer Olympics, was the undefeated UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion before taking the first loss of her career in a November 2015 upset to Holly Holm. The mixed-martial arts trailblazer has also ventured into acting, appearing in the movies "The Expendables 3," "Furious 7" and "Entourage," and will star in a planned remake of the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie "Road House."
