Don’t mess with Ronda Rousey… despite her fighting record and all. Like a lot of Hollywood elites these days, the UFC fighter just revealed she was robbed, but her hunky fiancé quickly stepped in and saved the day.
A few months ago, Ronda and her longtime boyfriend, UFC fighter Travis Browne, were about to leave for a trip to New Zealand, where Browne eventually would propose to her, when they returned to their home in Venice, California to complete chaos.
“We stopped by the house right before we were going to go to the airport and he was going to sneak away and go ask my mom for permission, but right when we got to the house, we realized we were robbed,” Rousey said on Live with Kelly and Ryan.
“Someone had been squatting in my house for like three days, sleeping in my bed, stole my Olympic rings, stole my guns, stole all my precious jewelry, every headphone in the house, credit cards.”
While we would’ve been freaking the hell out, these two allegedly kept their cool. They calmly checked their security cameras and quickly realized who had done it.
“We have security cameras, so we looked back at them and we saw that they were a bunch of kids with skateboards and there’s a famous skate park right across the street,” Rousey explained. “So my man’s 6-7, like 260 [pounds], he like beelined it straight to the skateboard park, finds the guys right away.”
She went on, “He’s smart enough not to [hit them], we’ll get sued pretty hard, but he found the police right then and they caught them. They knew it was my house. There’s no way you can’t not know it’s my house. What little punks.”
She didn’t reveal if they actually got their stuff back or not. She ended up changing the subject of the interview to her new gig as a coach on the rebooted version of Battle of the Network Stars.
Rousey is on a two-fight losing streak. In 2015, she was knocked out when Holly Holm kicked her in the head, and in December 2016, in her highly anticipated return to the cage, she was wrecked by Amanda Nunes, the UFC bantamweight champion. Since the Nunes fight, speculation has been swirling about Rousey’s future in the cage. UFC president Dana White has all but confirmed she will retire from the sport.
Her man isn’t doing too great in the sport right now, either. He’s lost his last three UFC fights, most recently getting KO’d by Derrick Lewis in February. He hopes to get back on track on Saturday night when he fights Aleksei Oleinik at UFC 213 in Las Vegas.
At least these two have their upcoming wedding to look forward to…
