Ronda Rousey Net Worth: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know



Ronda Rousey can do it all.

She may be best known for her hatred of standing inside an Octagon for longer than three minutes, but she’s also a best-selling author, an accomplished actress and a model. Her versatility has made her the 34th most marketable athlete in the world, and as a result, her bank account has a lot of zero’s–in the good way–in it.

Here’s everything you need to know about her net worth and career earnings:

1. Her Net Worth Is Estimated at $5 Million



An athlete’s net worth is always a very rough estimate. For example, pegs Rousey’s net worth at $5 million, while puts it at $7 million.

It really depends where you look, but the general fact of the matter remains the same. Rousey is a multi-millionaire, her fights continue to be the biggest draw in the sport and she’s only going to continue raking in money.

2. She Made $6.5 Million Over the Last Year

This number is a lot more accurate than general net worth. According to Forbes, Rousey made $6.5 million between June 2014 and June 2015. That was enough to put her No. 8 on the list of highest paid female athletes.

Her income is nearly split down the middle between fight earnings and endorsements. She reportedly made $3.5 million from a wide array of sponsors–more on that later–and $3 million from her two fights during that span. The latter makes her the highest-paid UFC fighter, something she says is deserving due to the unprecedented draw she brings to the sport:

I think that how much you get paid should have something to do with how much you bring in. I’m the highest-paid fighter not because Dana and Lorenzo wanted to do something nice for the ladies. They do it because I bring in the highest numbers. They do it because I make them the most money. And I think the money that they make should be proportionate to the money they bring in.

Here estimated career earnings is $13 million.

3. She Makes More Per Second During a Fight Than Floyd Mayweather



Earlier this year, the feud between Rousey and Floyd Mayweather turned towards money when “Money” told Rousey to “call me” when she makes over $300 million in 36 minutes. Rousey shot back:

I don’t know if you saw the Floyd thing; he said ‘You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call.’ I actually did the math and given the numbers of my last fight, I’m actually the highest paid UFC fighter and I’m a woman. And I think I actually make two to three times more than he does per second. So when he learns to read and write, he can text me.

The exact numbers for her last fight against Bethe Correia aren’t known, but if you go back to her previous two fights, her math checks out.

Using Forbes’ June-to-June number of $3 million, she made $100,000 per second during her two fights (wins vs. Cat Zingano and Alexis Davis, which lasted a combined 30 seconds). Mayweather also had two fights over that span, making $65,972 per second.

Both are ludicrous numbers, so neither is really a loser here. But Rousey is certainly more efficient.

4. She Has Endorsements With Reebok & Several Other Companies

Rousey is not only one of the most dominant athletes in the universe, but she is a trailblazer in her sport, she’s an inspiration to young girls across the world and she is a genuine, likable individual. She is easily marketable, and that shows up in her long list of endorsement deals.

Among her many sponsors are Reebok, MetroPCS, Carl’s Jr and Monster Energy. The list goes on, and a quick scroll through Rousey’s social media accounts will find her proudly promoting all of her companies.

5. She Is a Best-Selling Author & Movie Star

In May, Rousey released her auto-biography, “My Fight/Your Fight,” which she co-wrote with her sister and journalist, Maria Burns-Ortiz. It was No. 3 on the New York Times‘ best-seller list for sports books in June, and it has consistently been in the top-six since then.

Rousey has also carved out quite the role in front of the camera. She had roles in highly popular movies such as The Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage (playing herself), and she’s set to star in Mile 22 with Mark Wahlberg and the remake of Road House.
