Forbes has released their list of the highest paid women in sports over the past year, June 2014-June 2015, and UFC mega-star Ronda Rousey only checks in at #8.
Here’s a breakdown of Rousey’s reported earnings for last year:
“Salary, winnings, appearances, licensing and endorsements” earnings of $6.5 million from June 2014 to June 2015.
Forbes estimated that Rousey drew $3 million in fight earnings and $3.5 million in endorsement earnings over the course of the study.
The top 3 spots on the 2014-2015 highest paid female athletes list belong to women’s tennis players, so while Ronda may be in the top 3 in terms of popularity the fact remains that she is grossly underpaid for what she brings to the UFC.
