Ronda Rousey Is Selling the Honda Accord She Used to Live in on Ebay

Would you pay $14,200.00 for a 2005 Honda Accord that has 156,098 miles on it, needs a new transmission and is missing two front hubcabs?

Probably not. Especially when KelleyBlueBook says that the fair purchase price on the Honda is $6,104.

But what if you knew the Honda belongs to Ronda Rousey, the first and current UFC women’s bantamweight champion, the last Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion, and the first U.S. woman to earn an Olympic medal in judo at the 2008 Summer Olympics?

Now we’re talking about a different story.

Rousey is selling her car on eBay, having put it up for auction on May 31. It’s obviously doing well since there are 51 bids and the starting price for the first day, which was $3,000, has skyrocketed to $14,400.00 as of press time. Rousey fans have five days left to bid on the car.

For Rousey fans, the price might be worth it, especially since the car used to be Rousey’s home and you’ll be able to breathe in the air of the star Sports Illustrated called “The World’s Most Dominant Athlete” if you win the bid.

In 2008, after returning home to Los Angeles from the Olympics, Rousey had little money and held down two jobs, one as a waitress and one as a front desk clerk for a fitness center. But she made so little that she was forced to live in the Honda, which was also a way for her to save money to rent an apartment.

Of course Rousey is now making millions from endorsements and her fight career. But through it all, Rousey kept the Honda in her family. She once gave it to her sister to use and, right now, Rousey’s mom is still using it to run errands.

The eBay listing reads:

“Own Ronda Rousey’s actual Honda that she once lived in, including everything that has been left in it.”

Yes, you’re bidding on more than a car. Here’s what you also get:

“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. You can see from the eBay photos what all the items are that are located in the car. We (Ronda’s family) like to joke about all of the cool things you find in Ronda’s car. Every time you open the door, it’s is like an archeological dig! Also, Ronda did glue a few medals, patches, coins, and figurines to the inside of her car which probably aren’t going to come off.”

The medals and other highly personal items were left in the car on purpose by Rousey to make the auction enticing.

The winning bidder will have to pick the car up in Los Angeles or find a way to ship it. And no, Rousey won’t be there when keys are exchanged, the eBay listing warns.

The listing also includes two YouTube videos of “Ronda dancing, singing, and having fun in her 2005 Honda Accord.”

Happy bidding!
