The game will be hitting shelves in the spring of 2016, but before then Rousey will have to face off against Holly Holm in her third fight of 2015 at UFC 193 on Nov. 15. 

Rousey recently discussed her plans for post-UFC life saying she hopes to one day retreat to a ranch and raise buffalo, but only after she has conquered the world of boxing and WWE in addition to her dominant run in the octagon.
