Current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is recognized as the face of UFC, if not MMA. With a perfect 11-0 record to accompany her championship reign, she is putting a sport once pigeon-holed alongside lumberjack games and barrel rolling into the limelight. On top of that, Rousey is becoming a household name thanks to numerous appearances in magazines (especially ESPN’s Body), supporting or cameo acting roles in hit movies, and a recently-released autobiography.
Now salesperson can be added to that list as reports show Ronda Rousey is selling her car. What is unique about the car is the fact it is the Honda Accord she lived out of while pursuing her career in MMA. Looks like one lucky person is going to own a historic piece of Rousey’s past.
According to Fox Sports, Ronda Rousey placed a listing on eBay for her Honda Accord in which the seller note states to bidders they can “own Ronda Rousey’s actual Honda that she once lived in, including everything that has been left in it.” Take note of the fact that she is including “everything in it.” This includes medals, UFC programs from past events, patches, hats, and all kinds of random Ronda items.
It should be noted there is a downside to winning Ronda Rousey’s Honda Accord. Apparently, it needs a new transmission and currently clocks in at just over 156,000 miles. Shipping and handling must be provided by the winner of the auction unless they want to pick-up the car as is. However, Rousey will not be present.
There is one courtesy Ronda Rousey hopes the winner of the auction will honor. According to TMZ Sports, Rousey is asking whoever wins her Honda Accord not to “pleasure themselves” in it. Said courtesy is written alongside another personal message Rousey wrote on the dash.
“You were the best noble steed I could ask for. You never broke down, you hung in there when I couldn’t afford to change your oil. I could always depend on you. I love you, enjoy retirement.”
Ronda Rousey’s Honda Accord has been sold as of Sunday, June 7, 2015. The eBay page is still active but it is unsure for how long. Apparently, the winning big was $21,300.
