LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ronda Rousey is constructing her escape hatch out of mixed martial arts, even if she's not planning to use it just yet.

The UFC bantamweight champion has turned her celebrity and charisma into a budding career as an action film star. Many MMA fighters dream about it, but Rousey is actually doing it: With upcoming parts in "The Expendables 3," the newest "Fast and Furious" chapter and the "Entourage" movie, she's seeking success outside the cage even while her fighting career is near its peak.

Rousey (9-0) makes her fourth title defense against Alexis Davis at UFC 175 on Saturday in Las Vegas. Rousey is sharing the bill with middleweight champion Chris Weidman's title defense against Lyoto Machida.
