With the seventh instalment in the Fast & Furious franchise being the final film the late Paul Walker made before his tragic and untimely death, it's not like we needed another reason to check out the hotly anticipated Furious 7 when it comes out early next month.

But as well as a last opportunity to witness Walker in action, the film will also provide a rare and somewhat unexpected treat, as longtime star Michelle Rodriguez goes toe-to-toe with mixed martial arts Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, in what looks suspiciously like the Palace Suite of Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi.

The preview clip, above, shows Rodriguez first fighting off a crew of Rousey's 'henchwomen', before turning her attention to the UFC fighter, in what promises to be one of the most thrilling scenes in the upcoming film. And of course, the whole thing is made even better by the fact that both women are wearing elegant evening gowns and looking as stunning as they are dangerous.
