Before Ronda Rousey was the UFC’s biggest star and recognized as the most dominant athlete in all of sports, she was a struggling Olympian who came home from the 2008 games with just enough money to invest in a 2005 Honda Accord.
The car was not only Rousey’s only mode of transportation, but after bouncing around from job to job trying to make ends meet, she ended up living there while saving money to rent an apartment.
Fast forward nearly seven years later and Rousey is raking in millions upon millions of dollars each year from her fight career, endorsements and starring in feature films.

Despite her fame and fortune, Rousey kept that 2005 Honda Accord for several years, even handing it down to her little sister, but now she’s decided that it’s time to let the car go by selling it to the highest bidder on eBay.
Yep, the car Ronda Rousey once lived in can be yours in the next six days.
Ronda Rousey’s 2005 Honda Accord
The listing on eBay states, "own Ronda Rousey’s actual Honda that she once lived in, including everything that has been left in it."
To up the ante on this auction, Rousey has left everything in the car as is, including personal effects and a few medals that she actually glued to the inside of the interior.
"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."
If there’s a downside to buying Rousey’s old car it’s the fact that the vehicle does need a new transmission and currently clocks in at just over 156,000 miles, but that’s nothing when you’re buying a piece of history!
The current bid on Rousey’s car is going for $3,250 but there’s nearly a week left in the auction so there’s plenty of time left if you want to make a play to own the UFC champion’s former car/home.
