UFC president Dana White claims that bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is pulling in over $3 million dollars in sponsorship money per year.
White, while talking to Jim Rome, dropped some information about the stars finances.
“She’s the greatest athlete that I’ve ever worked with, period. I wish I had 10 Ronda Rouseys. She’s laser focused on her career and what she wants to do. None of these guys want to do PR. She’ll do any PR you ask her to do. She’ll even do PR to try to help sell somebody else’s fight. We need her to do things, a lot of activations with sponsors and she says ‘No problem.’ When she leaves, the sponsors call here and say she was unbelievable to work with. That woman’s making over $3 million a year in sponsorship.”
I guess it does pay to be a nice guy/women. Do you guys buy this or is White just trying to calm all of the backlash about the Reebok deal? Sound off in the comments.
