Limited-edition patches, championship medals, and...loose change? That's right. All that and so much more can now be yours if you bid the right amount for UFC champion Ronda Rousey's old car.
Before Ronda was, well, the Ronda Rousey we now know as one of UFC's biggest stars of all time, she was a broke Olympian who came home from the games with barely enough money to buy a 2005 Honda Accord. As she worked to make ends meet, Ronda used the car not only as her mode of transportation, but as her home, too. Can you imagine "the world's most dominant athlete" living out of her car?
In the cover story for the May 18th issue of SI, Ronda went into detail about what it felt like to come home with a bronze medal from the Olympic games and realize that the prize held such little monetary value. She struggled with depression as she worked a series of low-paying jobs and used the very car that's for sale as an escape and home-base during that difficult period in her career.
But now the year is 2015, and Ronda is killing it. But despite bringing in millions from epic fights, feature film roles and endorsement deals, Ronda hung on to her trusty Honda Accord—until now.
With a listing on eBay, Ronda's family has sent her fans into a frenzy at the opportunity to own a little piece of Ronda's legacy. After all, she did find the strength and courage to keep going while sleeping in that very car. And to encourage bidders, her family explained that Ronda left everything in the car as-is.
"There are many of Ronda's personal belongings inside the car, including medals, UFC programs from past events, patches, hats, and all kinds of random Ronda items...We like to joke about all of the cool things you find in Ronda's car. Every time you open the door, it's like an archeological dig!"
There's only one catch..."Ronda will not be available at the time of pickup." BUMMER.
