Ronda Rousey continues to find success outside of the Octagon.
After appearing on the show “Blindspot” on NBC, Rousey is now making a jump over to its competing network. On Tuesday, it was announced that the former UFC champion would be leading a team in the revival of ABC’s “Battle of Network Stars.”
The show, which was originally hosted by Howard Cosell in the 70’s and 80’s, is being rebooted. This time, Mike Greenberg and Joe Tessitore will host the show.
Rousey and former NFL superstar Demarcus Ware will be leading the competing teams.
The show will begin on June 29, and pits 100 TV stars from 14 different networks across genres throughout the summer.
After starting her UFC career undefeated, Rousey experienced a meteoric rise to fame and celebrity. Her first loss was a shocking knockout to Holly Holm, which was followed by a 48 second defeat to Amanda Nunes.
The two fights were one year apart, and Rousey is believed to be taking an extended break from fighting, possibly for good.
