Ronda Rousey is trading in her Reebok kit for an orange prison jumpsuit.

The former women's bantamweight champion is set to play a tough as nails prisoner named Devon Penberthy on the hit NBC series Blindspot next month. Judging by a couple of behind the scenes photos recently posted by the champ as well as TMZ, it looks like Rousey's character will be getting into a bloody brawl on the show.

While we're not sure how those blood spots got on Rousey's outfit in this scene, we're guessing it's because somebody messed with her iced coffee.

Although Rousey's future inside the Octagon is unclear following her loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, expect to see more of the UFC superstar on the big and small screens. In addition to Blindspot, a documentary focused on Rousey and her relationship with her father is also set to hit theaters at some point this year.

And don't count out a return to mixed martial arts just yet. Rousey recently posted a cryptic message on Instagram, possibly hinting a comeback.

Whether it's in the cage or at the theaters, it sounds like isn't done with the spotlight just yet.
