Former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is bringing the action to NBC's Blindspot this spring.

The network has released the first official photos from the ex-champ's appearance on the hit series, and it looks like Rousey will get to kick a lot of butt as she escapes from jail in the May 3 episode. Well, that is when she isn't striking fierce glances at her co-stars.

Blindspot and Thor star Jaimie Alexander revealed last month that she gets to have an awesome, yet painful, fight scene with the UFC superstar.

“I got to have a cool fight scene with Ronda Rousey,” Alexander said. “I couldn’t feel my legs for most of it!”

She added, "I actually blacked out, I have no idea (what happened)! I was very sweaty.”

According to the official synopsis for the episode, titled "In Words, Drown I," Rousey's character will be a member of a shadowy terrorist organization called Sandstorm.

Zapata's (Audrey Esparza) transgressions catch up to her, sending her to jail alongside a potentially powerful Sandstorm asset named Devon (guest star Ronda Rousey.) Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) and the team must go to exceptional lengths to help Zapata out.
