If there’s one thing everyone on the planet already knows, it’s that Ronda Rousey is one bad chick. With an undefeated UFC record and the reputation of taking down anyone who dares fight her in just a matter of seconds, Rousey doesn’t back down from anyone or anything.
Oh, but don’t think that her fighting skills just miraculously showed up one day. No, Rousey could kick anyone’s ass when she was 14 years old, too, as she often did for, yep, a Frappuccino from STARBUCKS.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion talked about how she would literally challenge people to fights in order to get her coffee fix on, per SI:
“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.”
There are so many questions that have to be asked after hearing this, the first of which is why grown-ass men were so willing to duke it out with a 14-year-old girl, and the next important being why Rousey was crazy enough to fight for Starbucks. Chick really is wired differently.
Maybe I’m old school, but Rousey could have just stuck with her chores so not to fight in parking lots for Starbucks, but I’m also a giant wuss, so, there’s that to consider.
