Ronda Rousey pens memoir with sister for 2015 release

BY Damon Martin • December 9, 2014

From her journey as a judo superstar to one of the most popular mixed martial artists on the planet, Ronda Rousey definitely has had an interesting life. Now she will chronicle it all in a new book set for release in May 2015.

Regan Arts announced via the Associated Press on Tuesday that Rousey, along with her sister Maria Burns Ortiz, who is a sportswriter, will pen the new book "My Fight/Your Fight."

The book will follow Rousey's life, from her upbringing as a judo prodigy, making it all the way to the Olympics where she won a bronze medal, to her meteoric rise up the fight ranks to her current place as the UFC women's bantamweight champion.

Rousey certainly has been keeping busy lately.

Besides the book deal, she has a fight scheduled for Feb. 28 against Cat Zingano as the co-main event for UFC 184, as well as two big movie releases coming in the first half of 2015.  She will be in "Furious 7" in April as well as the HBO-produced "Entourage" movie to come out in June.
