Rousey set to co-host SportsCenter on Wed.

Is there anything Ronda Rousey can't do?

The UFC's first and only female bantamweight champion will add another first to her resume this Wednesday, Oct. 7, as she becomes the first female athlete to guest host ESPN's SportsCenter.

Rousey, who will defend her crown Nov. 14 against Holly Holm in Melbourne, Australia, at UFC 193, will co-host the 6 pm ET hour of SportsCenter alongside anchor Lindsay Czarniak.
 


“I’m excited to co-host SportsCenter with Lindsay on Wednesday,” Rousey said in a press release announcing the news.  “I’ve always appreciated the support ESPN has shown me and I’m honored to be the first female celebrity co-host!”

Along with her co-hosting duties, Rousey is scheduled to appear on several other ESPN shows on Wednesday - including Mike and Mike, First Take, and the midnight SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt.

Rousey's ESPN appearances won't be the only time she's on TV this week. The 28-year-old is also scheduled to make a visit on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
