    Dana White has said on numerous occasions that Ronda Rousey is “the
    biggest star the UFC has ever had”.
    So why did the UFC 170 HEADLINER defending her CHAMPIONSHIP BELT
    against a truly dangerous opponent get paid 40% less than DC fighting a
    nobody in a non-title bout. She made 110K, 55K to show, he made 160k, 80K to
    show. That is some serious BS.

    Pays to be a contender!
