Ronda Rousey has landed a guest role on NBC’s “Blindspot.”

Rousey will star in the NYC-filmed series as prison inmate Devon Penberthy, the network confirmed in a news release on Tuesday. Penberthy, a New Hampshire native, finds herself serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. Unsurprisingly, she’s a strong fighter who knows her way around a weapon.

If Rousey brings any of her MMA skills to the role (and why wouldn’t she), her character will be a force to be reckoned with.

Rousey's episode is slated to air in May.

The MMA fighter is no stranger to acting gigs. She’s previously appeared “Entourage,” “Furious 7” and “The Expendables 3.”
