Ronda Rousey Hosts SNL on January 23rd

rousey-redcarpetDespite her UFC 193 knockout loss to Holly Holm last November, Olympic bronze medalist “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is still on the A-list, as far as Hollywood is concerned. It was announced early this morning that the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion will be hosting NBC’s Saturday Night Live on January 23rd. After going off the grid and laying low following her defeat, Rousey is making a huge comeback. Surprisingly, it comes on a comedy stage and not the Octagon. The Los Angeles native will be making history by being the first professional mixed martial artist to ever host the popular 40-year old sketch comedy show. Former combat sports athletes to host the show include boxing champions Marvin Hagler and George Former. Other sports stars to host the program have been Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky and LeBron James. The future of Rousey’s professional fighting career remains uncertain, but her future in show business appears to remain bright. The UFC wants her back inside the Octagon for an immediate rematch against Holm for UFC 200 in July, but nothing is set in stone yet. While Rousey doesn’t have a ton of experience with comedy, she did do a Honey Boo Boo parody for the Fighter’s Only World MMA Awards a few years back called “Ronda Boo Boo.” Watch “Rowdy” continue to make history by hosting Saturday Night Live on January 23rd, on NBC.
