Ronda Rousey Got Paid $3 million For Losing To Nunes

Amanda Nunes defeat Ronda Rousey to retain her women’s UFC bantamweight title. In her first fight for 13 months Rousey was annihilated by Nunes in just 48 seconds.

But, it’s not all bad news for Ronda. Once the swelling goes down and her bruises, she’ll still be able to enjoy the money she got paid for losing.

For her 48 seconds in the octagon, Ronda received an eye-watering $3 million (£2.4 million). That’s $62,500 (£50,641) per second:

Comparatively, Nunes stood to make around $100,000 (£80,000) from her appearance, which seems off-kilter as she was the defending champion at the time…

But, on the bright side, this was Nunes’ fifth victory in a row since she took the title off Miesha Tate at UFC 200 back in July with her record now reading 14-4-0.
