Jessamyn Duke was born on June 24th, 1986 in Whitesburg, Kentucky, United States. While she previously fought in the UFC, she was more recently fighting in the smaller Invicta Fighting Championships promotion before making the transition to the WWE. Aside from fighting in the UFC, she was also featured in the Ultimate Fighter TV show where she joined Team Rousey to go up against Team Tate. She focuses on Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. She started fighting in MMA since 2010, although did not transition into the professional leagues until the year of 2012. Overall her amateur record stands at 5 wins and only 2 losses, however her professional MMA record is only 3 wins and 5 losses with 1 no contest.
Unlike Ronda Rousey, Duke was not a household name in the MMA business which is why she is focusing on her new career to become a famous WWE wrestler instead. WWE has been successful for her friends Shayna Baszler and of course Ronda Rousey. She only signed a WWE contract on May 7th, 2018 where she will be training each day to become a sports entertainer. Much like Rousey and Baszler, she has been a fan of professional wrestling her entire life so it shouldn’t be too long until we see her compete in NXT.
Jessamyn Duke never got the amount of money Rousey received in UFC, but she did manage to make somewhat of a decent living from her former career. Her career earnings were only under $50,000 but she has managed to increase her wealth over the years. 2015 is by far her most successful year in terms of making money. As for her WWE career, most trainees start off with a base salary of approximately $50,000 per year. This number could be higher if you are famous much like Ronda Rousey who is worth way more than that. If Duke ever makes it to the main roster of WWE, she is sure to make even more money as the top female performers can earn between $200,000 to $500,000 per year. With the Women’s Revolution currently happening in WWE, there’s a chance the numbers could be even higher. Anyway, our estimate now is Duke’s net worth just prior to her WWE debut.
In all, we estimate Jessamyn Duke net worth in 2018 at $224,000.
