Ronda Rousey Kicks Ass, Threatens to Kick Additional Ass, in ‘SNL’ Promo

Subscribe to PopCrush on

A potentially devastating snowstorm is the least of New York City’s concerns this weekend — Hurricane Ronda Rousey is rolling in.

The UFC fighter ranked as the world’s No. 1 bantamweight will make her debut as host on the next new episode of Saturday Night Live, which will also feature Selena Gomez as a musical guest. And in the promo clip, Rousey and SNL cast member Beck Bennett go rounds.

Above, Rousey and Bennett talk love, fears and singlet-sporting alter-egos while comfortably seated in a room suspended high above the city. “Isn’t it amazing to be able to look around and know for miles and miles you could kick the ass of anyone down there in like twenty seconds?” Rousey poses as she looks out at the sprawling view behind her.


And whether her hosting duties amount to a K.O. or she falls on her face, she’s ready to dive in, no regrets.

“Hopefully you’ll be watching and laughing either at or with me that night,” she wrote in a recent Instagram post.

While it’s Rousey’s first time on SNL, she’s got a bit of acting experience — she appeared in The Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage. 

Check out the promo above, and watch Rousey and Gomez storm SNL Saturday night on NBC!
