Ronda Rousey: UFC star Used To Street-Fight Guys For Frappuccinos

As a 14-year-old girl with little spending money and an intense addiction to Starbucks, Ronda Rousey devised a brilliant hustle to get her Frappuccinos for free. She beat up dudes on the street. Here are the details, as she recently relayed them to Sports Illustrated.

“I was around fourteen years old. And I thought I was hot shit, badass, right? And I felt like this secret, blonde, Beverly Hills Ninja. And I loved Frappuccinos. Me and my friend Jackie, after school, we would walk over to the Promenade, and Jackie was like my Paul Heyman. She would be like, ‘I bet my girl right here could beat you up for $10, or $5, or whatever.’ And then some guy would be like, ‘Ehh, whatever. I’ll take that bet.’ It would just start, and whatever the guy was, I would throw him to the ground, either give him a choke or an arm bar. We would get him to say he gave up, then take his money and go buy Frappuccinos. Those were my first pro fights. Will fight for Frappuccinos.”

How do you not love the image of a fourteen year old Ronda Rousey wailing on dudes who were willing to challenge her to a fight all in the name of a coffee drink? I mean I suppose if you were one of those dudes, sure. But otherwise? That’s incredible. And this also proves that age old adage: “If a fourteen year old girl challenges you to a fight with coffee on the line, you always say no.”
