UFC 190: Rousey v CorreiaBar brawlers had better watch out — or they might get a beatdown from Ronda Rousey.

Variety reports that the MMA fighter will star in a reboot of the 1989 cult classic "Road House," which originally featured Patrick Swayze as a bouncer hired to clean up a rowdy bar in Missouri. Swayze then had to contend with corrupt businessmen threatening the town, all while throwing out memorable (if illogical) lines like, "Pain don't hurt" and "Nobody ever wins a fight."

Rousey reportedly reached out to Swayze's widow, Lisa Niemi, for her blessing, which Niemi gave. On Twitter, the UFC fighter said it was a "great honor" to be part of the project: Rousey has begun dabbling in acting in recent years, appearing in "The Expendables 3,""Entourage," and "Furious 7." Next up is her biopic "My Fight/Your Fight" and the female counterterrorism drama "The Athena Project."
