When is a 10-year-old Accord in need of a new transmission worth over $21,000? Easy. When it was owned by UFC Bantamweight Champion and movie star Ronda Rousey. That’s when.
The beautifully kick buttocks woman is selling her beloved “Fonda” (her name for the car) on eBay and is including a lot of goodies with it. She once lived in the car, dedicating herself to her sport so thoroughly that she gave up paying rent so she could afford gym fees and dog food for her four-legged companion.
That dedication has paid off, of course, with the Ultimate Fighting Champion earning her title and defending it vigorously ever since. That excellence also landed her a role in the latest episode of the Expendables franchise alongside Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Things are definitely looking up for the UFC champ and she seems ready to move on to a new car as well.
Included with the deal are several miscellaneous items she’s “left” in it, such as a Pokemon doll, a UFC Fight Night DVD, a random New Orleans sticker, and Rousey’s autographed message to the car atop its passenger-side airbag cover.
“Goodbye Fonda, 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 hop you enjoy reitrement. -Ronda Rousey”
Bidding for the car ended on June 7 at $21,300, won by an anonymous bidder after heated last-minute bidding.
