SNL will kick off 2016 on Jan. 16, with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Adam Driver who makes his hosting debut alongside first-time musical guest Chris Stapleton.
Ronda Rousey will join a long line of fighters and other athletes who have hosted SNL including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Peyton Manning and Derek Jeter. Rousey will have to bring her “A” game if she wants to score some direct hits like those did.
