Ronda Rousey

If UFC 207 did mark the last time Ronda Rousey fights, the former bantamweight champ’s MMA career closed out with a massive payday.

As you almost certainly know, Rousey was quickly stopped by Amanda Nunes last night at UFC 207, who finished the star with thumping punches. The bout lasted only 48 seconds.

More recently, MMA Junkie has posted the fighter purses that were disclosed to the Nevada Commission, by the UFC. According to the figures, Rousey was paid $3 million dollars for the bout. That does not include, remember, and pay-per-view points she has coming her way, or any additional money she might have made via sponsorships etc.

Nunes, on the other hand, earned $200,000 for the massive win. That includes a $100,000 win bonus.

The next highest earner on the night was now former bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz, who was paid $350,000. Cody Garbrandt, who won the 135 title via unanimous decision, earned $200,000. TJ Dillashaw, who decisioned John Lineker, also made $200 K. The latter was paid $43,000.
