As quickly as she came, Ronda Rousey might go just as swiftly.

The UFC women’s champion’s plate is full of meetings, reality shows and roles in movies. With the hectic schedule, fighting in the Octagon appears to be coming to an end within two years from now, according to the fighter.

“I do four-year cycles,” Rousey told “I think I’ve got two years left in me, realistically, if I’m going to do this like an Olympic run.”

In regards to her fight career, Rousey just finished shooting for Season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” where viewers will see her coach opposite her rival, Miesha Tate. The two bantamweights will then square off in the co-main event at UFC 168, in a rematch of their first fight from the Strikeforce days.

With the fight over four months away, the time leading into it allows Rousey to dabble in Hollywood and begin shooting for “Expendables 3,” her first movie role. Shooting will take place in Bulgaria, and Rousey, according to GRACIEMAG sources and various reports, will have a training camp on the set of the movie so she stays in shape.

But Rousey’s Hollywood ambitions don’t stop with the “Expendables” sequel. Once she’s done shooting for her first role, she’ll likely jump into shooting for her second role as an unnamed character in “Fast & Furious 7.” As of now, she is currently in negotiations and has not yet signed on for the film.

“I’ve got a lot of stuff coming up that I can’t talk to you about,” she said.

Rousey’s UFC 168 fight takes place on Dec. 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
