LOS ANGELES » UFC star Ronda Rousey will host “Saturday Night Live” on Jan. 23.

The show announced the plan today, with Selena Gomez as the musical guest.

Rousey (12-1) was the first female fighter signed by the UFC. She defended her 135-pound title six times before her shocking loss to Holly Holm in Australia two months ago.

Rousey also is an actor, appearing in “The Expendables 3,” ”Furious 7” and the film version of “Entourage.” She has several additional acting jobs in various stages of development.

Rousey is the first mixed martial artist to host the show, but athletes have a long history in Studio 8H.

LeBron James, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter and boxers George Foreman and Marvin Hagler have all hosted “Saturday Night Live” or appeared on the show.
