Ronda Rousey has been all over the place in the past few years, and she’s not done making moves.
The former WWE and UFC champ is currently guest-starring on the FOX drama “911,” and is now heading to ESPN+ with her docuseries, “Why We Fight.” Season one of the series originally aired on Verizon Go90. However, according to The Wrap, season two is heading to ESPN+.
Former UFC star Cat Zingano will be hosting the series, which is executive produced by Rousey, produced by Dirty Robber and Religion of Sports, co-founded by Gotham Chopra, Tom Brady and Michael Strahan. Zingano released the following statement on landing the hosting gig:
For all of us who are fighters, there is nothing that makes us feel more alive than fighting. It’s the scariest, yet most rewarding experience we’ll ever have. Someone who isn’t a fighter may not understand, but fighting can save lives.
Everyone, including normal everyday people, should fight in some way. It’s a healthy way to express and empower yourself, and having that physical outlet and love for fighting can help anyone through life’s struggles. Fighting has gotten me through a lot in my life. That’s what this show is about.
The first four episodes of the season will be available on ESPN+ later this month. All of season one is currently available.
