SNL: UFC Fighter Ronda Rousey to Host With Musical Guest Selena Gomez

Saturday Night Live is getting punchy with its hosting picks, tapping UFC fighter, Olympic medalist and actress Ronda Rousey to enter the Studio 8H ring on Jan. 23.

Serving as musical guest that night is another SNL first-timer, Selena Gomez.

SNL resumes Season 41 on Jan. 16, with host Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Girls) and musical guest Chris Stapleton.

What are your predictions for the Rousey/Gomez one-two punch?

    The women of SNL better watch out.

  2. Shaun says:

    This sounds like a terrible idea.Make Selena host and get a different music act.

  3. HAP says:

    Actually, Rousey, and the woman that defeated her, Holly Holm are both very personable, quite attractive and are class acts, when outside of the ring.

      Theoretically, it gives the SNL writers an opening for something new and different in the way of comedy. Note however that I did say “theoretically.” A wrestling match vs. Aidy Bryant seems to be a safe bet for the first half hour.
