After UFC 170, Ronda Rousey Will Be One of the Top Ten Earners in UFC History

Even though she has only fought twice in the octagon, Ronda Rousey is one fight away from being one of the Top 10 all time earners in UFC history. Once UFC 170 is in the books, she will be among a very rich group of fighters.

UFC President Dana White mentioned this tidbit during a recent media appearance and Jeremy Botter tweeted the information. White did not elaborate on who else was in the elite group, but it is safe to assume Rousey will be enjoying the company of fighters like Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva.

Ronda Rousey will be defending her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship against Sara McMann at UFC 170. The fight is scheduled to take place on February 22nd at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card saw a recent shakeup when co main-event fighter Rashad Evans was forced to pull out of his bout due to an injury. Daniel Cormier will remain on the card, however, as the UFC signed a new fighter just to fill the spot.

    I guess they’re paying that cock smoker way more then what she’s worth, if she’s already top ten. Hope McMann KHTFO!

  2. kelticLadi says:

    all she is ..is her arm bar gimmick, as soon as one person gets past that, shell have nothing left.

      You know that’s how most top tier grapplers train? Practice 5 – 10 submissions only, but practice thousands of ways to get to each one. It’s the reason almost no one can stop her because if they stuff 2 or 3 of her attempts, she got thousands more to try…she won 11 fights by armbar (10 in round 1 and 8 in the first minute)…everyone knows what’s coming and they’re still powerless.

  3. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    She’s deserves to be the number 1 earner, since she has actually BUILT women’s mma into the mainstream……I don’t care much about it but how many dudes watch the girls now because of Rousey? Yep she deserves to be the top earner. There have been many top men that help build the UFC and mma, BUT there has only been ONE woman so far….Rowdy Rousey. Period!

  4. JD says:

    All you people that think Ronda is a one trick pony need to get your heads out of your asses. You actually think that the arm bar is all she knows? Get real! She is a Judo black belt, she has many more weapons in her arsenal. Fact is, her arm bar is all she’s needed to finish off her opponents. Why not go to her signature move, if it works and gets her the win, then that’s what you do. If not, deploy more weapons.
