Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather are two of the biggest names in the sports industry, as well as highest paid. But Rousey recently said that she “did the math” and undoubtedly makes more money than Mayweather. She even went as far as to say she makes two to three more times the money he makes per second.
Given that Mayweather is infamous for his extravagant spending and over-the-top earnings, that’s a pretty bold statement to make.
In fact, just yesterday Mayweather made news for one his insane purchases, buying the most expensive car in the world for $4.8 million.
Earlier this year, news reports claimed Rousey can make about $12,527 per second during her brief, powerful and infamous UFC fights.
And just earlier this month, Rousey admitted that she does not yet earn as much as Mayweather- who earned $180 million in his fight against Pacquiao- but doesn’t expect to since she’s only fought 11 fights to his 50, give or take.
Rousey is reportedly worth about $14.8 million, and she reportedly earns about $3.1 million from endorsement deals alone. Not too shabby, not definitely not as much as Mayweather.
Like we said, Mayweather made $180 million in one fight alone- too much more than her net worth to even do the math.
We think think her comments saying otherwise might have been more a publicity stunt than anything else.
