Ronda Rousey didn't find anything funny about her stunning upset in November to Holly Holm. That doesn't mean she doesn't have some comedy in her, however. On January 23, Rousey will host an episode of SNL. Do you think she has enough funny in her for that?

The L.A. Times reports the previously unbeaten Ronda Rousey lost in a second-round knockout to Holly Holm in Australia. Since then, Rousey has been pretty much in seclusion, save for one post-fight interview.

Ronda Rousey joins a long list of athletes who has hosted SNL, including Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, LeBron James, Peyton Manning, and George Foreman. She is the first MMA fighter to host Saturday Night Live, however.

Even though she has yet to try out her comedy chops, that doesn't mean Ronda Rousey is a TV or film novice. She made cameo appearances in Entourage, Furious 7, and The Expendables 3.

Joining Ronda Rousey on the January 23 episode of SNL is musical guest Selena Gomez.
