The new UFC movie will have Rose Namajunas serving as an executive producer and fight consultant to help the actresses make the MMA scenes look authentic. Maybe we will even see  “Thug” Rose make a cameo at some point during the movie.

‘Strawweight’ will be directed by The Green Knight producer James M. Johnston, who also worked with movies such as ‘The Old Man and the Gun’ and ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’.

At the moment it’s unknown whether the movie will be released on streaming or in theaters.
