    Talking about combat sports always brings up some incredible names like Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey. Both of them have left their signature on UFC. Rousey is the first female fighter to have signed up for the promotion, and Lesnar has been a dominant force in the heavyweight sector.

    Brock Lesnar outearned Rousey by a good margin: how?

    Lesnar has significantly outearned Rousey by a great margin. Following her spectacular performances in the cage, Ronda Rousey became a household name. Being the first female fighter to sign with promotion, her success was a trademark to expand the women’s division.

    She held the bantamweight title from 2012-2015, and she defended it six times during that time. However, despite her huge success, her UFC career earnings are considerably lower than other top earners in the post.

    Brock Lesnar earned a whopping $5 million for his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt in 2016. In four long years, that was Lesnar’s first UFC fight and he was coming off a stint in WWE. Even though Brock Lesnar was long absent from the Octagon, he delivered a superb performance thanks to his star power and drawing capacity.

    Why did Rousey have lower earnings?

    In comparison to that, Rousey has a reported payday for a UFC fight worth $1 million. This was her final UFC fight against Amanda Nunes in 2016, which she lost via TKO. $1 million is not something tiny but a bit pale when compared to other big names in the sport. 

    Another reason for her lower earnings could be her decision to transition to professional wrestling. Rousey made her WWE debut in 2018 and was a top star in the company very soon.

    No matter her lower earnings compared to the other big stars in the sport, there’s no denying that she helped expand the women’s division significantly.
