EVERYDAY life for Ronda Rousey couldn’t be further away from the chaos of Wrestlemania.
The WWE star, 35, is set to face off against Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania 38 em abril 2.
But away from the ring, Rousey and husband Travis Browne spend their time perfecting and managing a Californian eco-ranch.
The pair founded Browsey Acres in 2017, moving from their previous pad in busy Los Angeles suburb Venice.
Fast forward five years and the WWE’s one-time ‘Diss of the Year’ winner is now dealing in a completely different kind of beef – Ragyu steak.
Rousey shot to fame in the UFC, winning the Women’s Bantamweight crown in 2012 and successfully defending the belt on six separate occasions.
Her last Octagon appearance was in 2016 and she’s since made the switch to the WWE, carving out a stellar career as a feared SmackDown Diva.
Along with MMA hubby Browne, Rousey returned to her childhood home of Riverside to reset their lives on 2.6acres of isolated land.
Originally joking she was moving to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, the couple has built their ‘sustainable ranch home’ from the ground up.
Rousey explains: “A lot of my early memories were being able to run around and go into the back and pick raspberries.
“I always kind of wanted to be able to give my kids that off-the-grid living experience.
“My dream is for our family to be able to live comfortably off of less money every year and someday free ourselves from worrying about a constant stream of income.”
‘OUR ANIMALS ARE SPOILT’
Along with Browne, Rousey shares the rustic surroundings with his sons Kaleo and Keawe, and new arrival La’akea.
The ranch has been designed and built by the fighting pair and features goats, a donkey, chickens, ducks and three dogs.
But the main attraction is Rousey’s Wagyu beef, with prized steer Kobe getting the ball rolling after the pair turned to sustainable meat production.
The Browsey Acres website explains: “Kobe the steer is the origin point of Browsey Acres.
“He was Ronda and Travis’ first Wagyu steer and the reason that all of this now exists.
“Kobe spent his years on Browsey Acres, drinking beer, roaming free, and playing with the goats.
“Kobe will always be adored, as he wasn’t just meat—he was family.”

Browne gave regular updates on Kobe during the cow’s time at the ranch, before he ultimately met his fate in 2019.
The MMA star explained: “All the animals here are f***ing spoiled, homem.
“That’s a good thing though. What we set this place out to be is kind of like a sanctuary.
“Even at the end of the day we’re going to eat Kobe, for a cow he’s had a pretty good life.”
Away from the Octagon, Rouse and Browne say they put their ‘blood, sweat and tears’ into transforming the ranch from nothing to a fully-fledged working farm.
And they spend the majority of their working day getting stuck in, whether it be feeding the animals or clearing out pens.
Rousey regularly updates her millions of followers on YouTube with videos that detail day-to-day life on the property.
‘WE’RE CREATING A HOME TOGETHER’
She became a vegan in 2008 after visiting Beijing and explained why the project as a whole was so important to the fighting couple.
Rousey said: “We’re creating a home together, you want that pride of doing it with your own bare hands.
“I enjoy this stuff, why would I pay someone else to do something I can do?”
Rousey and Browne married in 2017 and seem happier than ever with the life they have built up away from the day job.
UFC star Browne said: “Home is where the heart is, direito?
“My heart is with Ronda, so wherever she is at, I’m set. It is nice building something that is yours.”
After a more than two-year absence from the wrestling ring, Rousey returned in style at the 2022 Royal Rumble in January.
Desde então, she’s made six more appearances and takes her current winning streak into a showdown with Charlotte Flair at Wrestlemania 38.
Calling out Charlotte in the run-up to the huge fight, Rousey is confident her tough UFC experience will see her to victory.
Ela escreveu no instagram: “Ever since I was a kid, any time I got choked or armbarred in competition I either fought till I passed out or they dislocated my elbow.
“You’ll have to kill me before I tap out, [Charlotte].”
Liv Morgan 38 is live on Peacock in the United States, with all the action from Arlington broadcast live on April 2-3.
