Before being the undefeated UFC Champion, Ronda Roussey was a 14-year-old girl fighting random guys in Los Angeles. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Roussey revealed that her first “professional fights” were against random people on the street for 10 bucks so that she could buy frappuccinos for her and her friend.
“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.”
Why would any of these men want to fight a 14 year-old girl for $10? Word to the wise, don’t fight random girls on the street for money, they could be the next Roussey.
