Ronda Rousey, UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, has signed a deal with Paramount Pictures that’ll bring her autobiography to the silver screen. Not only that, but she’ll be starring in the film.

My Fight/Your Fight was published by Rousey earlier this year and quickly became a New York Times best seller. Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Insurgent) will adapt the book for film.

Rousey, widely considered mixed martial art’s greatest female fighter, is just days removed from a dominating victory over Bethe Correia. Her popularity has skyrocketed in the last couple years, leading to film roles in The Expendables 3, Furious 7, and Entourage, as well as Peter Berg’s forthcoming Mile 22 and The Athena Project.

There is no word on when the film may go into production, however, Rousey previously expressed a desire to limit outside actives while training. Rousey is expected to fight one more time before year’s end and will then shoot the Mile 22.

If you’re unfamiliar with Rousey, here’s a GIF documenting the entirety of her fight this past weekend. Yes, it only lasted 34 seconds.
