Ronda Rousey has accepted the role of Sonya Blade in the new Mortal Kombat 11 set to come out April 23rd of this year.
Many of us know Ronda from the UFC. She signed in 2012 where she enjoyed a two and a half year undefeated streak, during which she became the first female champion in the promotion’s history, and holds the record as the longest ever reigning UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and the first woman inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
After her last loss she joined the WWE in 2018 and has also starred in some action movies like The Expendables 3 (2014) and Furious 7 (2015).
“I’ve been a lifelong Mortal Kombat fan, and Sonya Blade was the first kick-ass, female video game character that I related to,” said Ronda Rousey. “Now I get to voice her in Mortal Kombat 11. It’s a dream come true to be a part of the Mortal Kombat franchise that I grew up playing.”
