Ronda Rousey can now add a new accomplishment to her already impressive résumé: The MMA star and Olympic medalist will be hosting Saturday Night Live this month, the show announced Tuesday.

Rousey, who is starring in the upcoming Road House reboot and previously appeared in 2015’s Furious 7 and Entourage, will be making her SNL debut along with fellow first-timer Selena Gomez, who will be that evening’s musical guest.

Saturday Night Live returns with host Adam Driver and musical guest Chris Stapleton on Jan. 16 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. See Rousey’s episode when it airs Jan. 23.
