Ronda Breaking Bones in Hollywood

UFC champ Ronda Rousey broke Expendables 3 director's ribs
By: Elias Cepeda, Yahoo! Sports
"Ronda Rousey was no doubt hoping to make an impression on Hollywood with her co-starring role in this summer's action flick, The Expendables 3. According to the film's director, Patrick Hughes, the UFC champion did much more than that - she broke one of his ribs with a punch.
 
"'I remember the first thing we shot with Ronda, I actually got beaten up. Ronda's first time ever on camera was the scene with Sly [Sylvester Stallione] at a bar, and she's really super-nervous. I went up and said, 'Well, what do you do before a big fight? And she says, 'I like to spar in my room. I get that nervous energy out.' And I said, 'So you need to hit something? Let's find something to hit.' And she said, 'But I want to hit you,' the movie director recounted in a recent interview."
