If you’re going to break into a house, it’s probably best to make sure that home doesn’t belong to a UFC champ – current or former – but that’s not what happened when a group of “little punks” recently burgled Ronda Rousey’s home.
In an appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” the 30-year-old former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champ and judo Olympic bronze medalist detailed the discovery (at the 3:15 mark) that she and her fiancé, UFC fighter Travis Browne, had been the victims of a break-in.
The couple was on their way to the airport, ready to leave for a trip to New Zealand, where the couple became engaged, when they quickly stopped in at the house to find quite a surprise.
“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,” Rousey said.
She also said her home was equipped with security cameras, so they had clear images of the burglars.
“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 said. “So my man’s 6-7, like 260 [pounds], he like beelined it straight to the skateboard park, finds the guys right away.”
And although Browne likely could have taken on the suspects, he didn’t lay a finger on them.
“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,” Rousey said, adding, “They knew it was my house. There’s no way you can’t not know it’s my house. What little punks.”
Rousey didn’t say if her things were returned.
“I wish five minutes with me was a sentence, but I think that would go into cruel and unusual punishment,” she said.
