Ronda Rousey is stepping out of the ring for a whole new kind of gig!

Shortly after knocking out Bethe Correia in 34 records Saturday night in Brazil, the UFC fighter is making moves on the big and small screen with two big projects.

Carl's Jr. and Hardee's announced Monday that "Rowdy" Ronda will become their newest commercial star. Paris Hilton, Padma Lakshmi, Kate Upton and Kim Kardashian have all appeared in ads for the company.

"Congrats on another big win, @RondaRousey," the fast-food restaurant shared on Twitter Sunday night. "Can't wait to introduce people to your sweet side in 30 days."

But wait, there's more! Variety reported Monday morning that Ronda is also making moves in her film career.

Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to Ronda's bestselling autobiography titled My Fight/Your Fight. She is expected to play herself in the film that has not secured a release date just yet.

Before fans begin to worry that the Hollywood fame could take over her boxing career, we're here to prove you wrong. Ronda couldn't help but express her gratitude after her epic win Saturday night in Brazil.

Besides, some athletes like Lolo Jones are more than willing to step in the ring and find out how hard it is to win against the 28-year-old.

"How much are these chicks paid to get knocked out in seconds?" the Olympic athlete joked on Twitter Saturday night. "I can't fight but I'll prolong it and run circles for least a minute. #UFC190."

She later clarified, "Why are my haters so mad I offered to fight @RondaRousey? Don't they want to see me get punched in the face. I am prepared for this fight. I have upped my life insurance and my mom will be quite wealthy. #ClosedCasketPlease ."
