UFC champ Ronda Rousey joins The Raid star Iko Uwais in ‘Mile 22’


Bantamweight Woman’s Champion Ronda Rousey has just been added to Peter Berg’s upcoming action film, Mile 22. Rousey will star along side The Raid‘s lead actor Iko Uwais.

“I am a huge fan of what Gareth (Evans) and Iko did on both ‘Raid’ films, and I’m very excited at the possibility of working with Ronda and Iko to create a film in the spirit of this new wave of combat cinema emerging from Indonesia. Ronda and Iko will be a very unique and powerful team.”

Written by LOST and Fringe writer Graham Roland, Mile 22 is about a CIA agent (Rousey) who teams up with an Indonesian police officer (Uwais) to tackle a political corruption case.


Rousey has recently been accepting more acting roles since her debut in Expendables 3. She will appear this summer in Furious 7 and the Entourage movie. Iko is working on Gareth Evans’ new film, Bliter, and will also appear later this year in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
