Photo: Thierry Henry & UFC legend rub shoulders on film set

Former Arsenal and Barcelona strike superstar could have a cameo in the anticipated Entourage movie.

One legend in football, another from mixed martial arts amongst a cast that has long been dubbed man's answer to Sex and The City.

In the photograph above, taken from the set of the upcoming Entourage movie based on the long-running HBO television series of the same name, Arsenal legend and former Barcelona striker Thierry Henry, 36, now of New York Red Bulls, is rubbing shoulders with Adrien Grenier (Vincent Chase), Doug Ellin (creator), Kevin Connolly (Eric E Murphy), UFC star Ronda Rousey, Kevin Dillon (Johnny 'Drama' Chase), Jerry Ferrara (Salvatore 'Turtle' Vacara) and Jeremy Piven (Ari Gold).

Due for release in 2015, Rousey is a confirmed member of the cast and with Henry's appearance in this image it appears the prolific and technically-exquisite striker will also play a part.

While most media outlets spot Henry, not many picked up that he had his arm around Rousey - a vicious fighter in the bantamweight division of mixed martial arts' premier promotion; the UFC.

Rousey is so strong, skilful and dominant that she is ranked tenth in the top ten active MMA fighters in all divisions - the only woman in a list consisting of superstars such as Jonny Bones Jones (light heavyweight), Cain Velasquez (heavyweight), Anderson Silva (middleweight) and Johny Hendricks (welterweight).

Henry better stay on the right side of Rousey as her signature move is a potentially bone-breaking armbar submission hold!
