Dana White: ‘I Didn’t Think It Was Possible For Ronda To Make So Much Money In Hollywood’
Rona Rousey has a busy schedule coming up.
Win or lose this weekend against Sarah McMann, the UFC bantamweight champion is set to leave the cage and head right into filming the major motion picture, Entourage. She’s not just making an appearance in these upcoming films either, she actually has lead roles.
The UFC boss recently expressed his surprise for Rousey’s sudden star power and the amount of cash being thrown at her.
“Ronda’s making a lot of money [in movies]. Ronda’s getting paid. I’ve never seen somebody go straight from [the UFC] and go into the movies and make the kind of money she’s making. I didn’t even think that was possible. But she is, so good for her. Everybody keeps talking about, ‘What happens if she leaves and goes to Hollywood?’ What happens if she leaves and goes to Hollywood?” How is that bad for us? How is that bad for the sport? Is ‘The Rock’ being a huge superstar bad for the WWE?”
