When finally makes her Octagon return at this weekend, the former women's bantamweight champion will be looking for some revenge thanks to her upset loss in her last fight at UFC 193.

Although Rousey won't get a chance to give Holly Holm some payback for taking her belt last year, "Rowdy" will get the opportunity to unleash her fury against current champ . Don't expect Rousey to hold back just because there's a different person holding onto the title.

In honor of Friday's highly-anticipated match-up, we decided to reimagine Rousey as the star of various revenge thrillers from movie history.

Check out the revenge movies we think Ronda Rousey could star in below.

Kill Bill

Rousey could easily replace Uma Thurman as the star of Quentin Tarantino's classic martial arts revenge flick. The former champ obviously already has the fighting skills and blonde locks needed to do "The Bride" justice.


She will find you and she will kill you. Rousey has a very particular set of skills that would work perfectly in a movie.


Rousey already has a ton of experience fighting in arenas, so taking on the lead role in the Gladiator should be no problem for the former Olympian.

Rocky IV

Nunes may not have hurt any of Rousey's friends, but the Brazilian brawler is in possession of the judo star's belt. Like , expect Rousey to give it everything she's got against Nunes on Friday night.

Death Wish

Move over Charles Bronson. Watching Rousey exact her revenge in a Death Wish movie would be an amazing and ultra violent cinema feast.

Léon: The Professional

If they ever wanted to remake Léon: The Professional with Rousey in Jean Reno's part, we think she'd definitely have what it takes to play an assassin in this iconic French thriller.

Inglourious Basterds

We could easily see Rousey join Tarantino's band of World War II misfits in the fan-favorite war film Inglourious Basterds.
