It’s taken Ronda Rousey less than five years to become one of the biggest stars MMA has ever seen, but how well is “Rowdy” being compensated? Well, according to the UFC’s bantamweight champ, no one is being paid more….

Rousey recently appeared on “The Ellen Show” with Ellen DeGeneres, and while discussing her earnings, the Judoka stated this (quote via FOX Sports):

“I’m the highest paid fighter in the UFC,” Rousey said.  “It’s pretty cool. It’s fun to say.”

I bet it is. This news isn’t too surprising. While its been clear for a little while now that Rousey is making some serious bank in sponsorships, movie roles etc, UFC 190 was the top selling PPV for the promotion this year.

Rousey quickly stopped Bethe Correia at the August 1st event. Up next, the champ will take on Holly Holm at UFC 193 on November 14th.
