It's Ronda Rousey's way or the highway.
The UFC champion has signed on to star in a remake of the 1989 action flick, "Road House" for MGM, playing the part made famous by Patrick Swayze in the original, Variety first reported.
The news comes one month after Paramount nabbed the rights to adapt Rousey's autobiography, "My Fight/Your Fight," with the most popular figure in mixed martial arts attached to star as herself.
In the campy original "Road House," Swayze starred as a philosophical bouncer who puts both the patrons of a tough Missouri bar and a corrupt local tycoon in their places. In other words, Rousey will get to use her fists.
The 28-year-old Rousey reached out to Swayze's widow, Lisa Niemi, and received her blessing to pursue a remake, according to Variety.
MGM is currently searching for a screenwriter.
