Ronda Rousey Net Worth $5 Million

So just how rich is Ronda Rousey? Sources have estimated that Ronda has a net worth of $5 million, which mainly comes from her mixed martial arts career, though she did start out as a judoka and was also highly succesfull at that. Her other sources of income include acting, modeling and a sponsorship contract with Reebok since 2014.

Ronda Rousey‘s parents are Ron Rousey and AnnMaria De Mars. Ronda‘s mother helped her a lot with her career, since she herself had a succesfull Judo career and was the first American to win Wold Judo Championship, which she won in 1984.

Ronda‘s potential showed even at a young age, when being just 17 years old, she was among the competitors at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens as the youngest judo practicioner. She made a name for herself as the first American to win two Junior World medals. In 2006 Ronda won the A-Level tournament at the Birmingham World Cup in Great Britain becoming the first female judoka from USA to do so. In 2008, she competed in the Beijing‘s Olympic Games where she brought home bronze.

In 2010 Ronda Rousey made the transition from judo to mixed martial arts. Her first performance with this style was against Hayden Munoz, which Rousey won via submission. The next year she participated in King Cage: Turning Point tournament where she used her signature move armbar to beat Ediane Gomes in just 25 seconds, a move which Ronda states she learned from her mother. Apparently, this move was used to wake up Rousey every morning. In 2012 Ronda competed in Women‘s Bantamweight Championship and won. She defended her champion title the next year, too.

Ronda Rousey‘s modeling career has consisted of appearances as cover girl for Maxim and ESPN The Magazine, the latter nude. The former magazine placed her in the Hot 100 list at the 29th spot. She also has an acting career with cameos in the blockbuster action movie “The Expendables 3“ and TV show “Entourage“, and is planned to star in the upcoming “Fast and Furious 7“.

Rousey was given the nickname Rowdy by her friends, but she refused to use it, thinking it would disrespect the wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper. When Ronda met him thanks to Gene LeBell her concerns were relieved and Roddy approved of the nickname.

Ronda used to be a vegan, but has now transitioned to a diet that‘s a combination of Warrior diet and Paleo. It‘s also known she‘s a fan of the Pokemon video game series.

#Fact
1Her all-time favorite film is Léon: The Professional (1994).
2As a child, Rousey overcame Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), a disorder characterized by the inability to correctly pronounce words and syllables. She had intensive speech therapy several times a week to correct it. Because of her frustration in trying to communicate, she was incredibly shy, and admits to having her sisters 'translate' for her.
3Was considered for the role of Atalanta in _Hercules (I) (2014)_, but the part went to Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolsø Berdal.
4On August 1, 2015 defeated Brazilian Bethe "Pitbull" Correia in Brazil by knockout in 34 seconds of the first round of UFC 190 to retain her bantamweight title, bringing her fighting record to 12 wins, 0 losses. Rousey dedicated the win to "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, the man who gave her his nickname. Piper passed away the night before at age 61.
5Before hitting it big in the MMA world, Rousey barely scraped by and at one point lived out of her car with her dog Mochi. The car, a 2005 Honda Accord LX with over 156,000 miles on it, some personal items, and Rousey's autograph on the dashboard, sold on Ebay in June of 2015 for $21,300.
6Left her UFC 190 title belt at judo school Instituto Reação in Rio de Janeiro as a way of thanking Brazilians for their passion and support.
7Is left-handed.
8In 2011 Ronda appeared on "Honoo No Taiikukai TV", a Japanese game show where she went toe-to-toe with three men in a Judo competition. Ronda stated that it would be more fair if she fought all three men at once, but even then they still wouldn't have a chance of beating her. Appearing in her Olympic blue gi, she was instructed to look mean and draw each fight out as the bouts progressed. The first man lasted 17 seconds, the second 33 seconds, and the last fight just over 2 minutes.
9In 2015 received the ESPY for Best Female Athlete and Best Fighter awards from ESPN. Rousey beat out fellow UFC fighter "Cowboy" Donald Ceronee, and boxers Floyd Merriweather, Gennady Golovkin, and Terence Crawford to become the first woman to ever receive the Best Fighter Award.
10Ronda's autobiography, My Fight/Your Fight was co-authored with her sister, Maria Burns Ortiz. Released in May of 2015, it became an immediate New York Time's listed best seller.
11Ronda appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2014. She was featured on the cover of the May 13, 2015 issue, only the second UFC fighter to do so.
12At age 16, Ronda became the youngest judo competitor on the US national team.
13Ronda's favorite toy as a child was a Wrestling Buddy of Hulk Hogan, a two-foot tall pillow version of the wrestler.
14In May of 2015, Business Insider ranked Ronda as the #1 most dominant athletes alive. Of the list of 50 athletes, Ronda was ranked ahead of #2 LeBron James, #3 Serena Williams, and #4 Cristiano Ronaldo.
15She's a huge Dragon Ball Z fan.
16The Expendables 3 (2014) director Patrick Hughes suffered a broken rib from one of her punches on set before her first scene. She also broke a few of blogger reporter Aaron Tru's ribs while demonstrating a judo throw onto an unpadded floor.
17Her first trip to the Emergency Room was due to a Raisinet. She and her older sisters had been making silly faces that included shoving candy up their noses when the inevitable happened. When her mother couldn't remove the candy, she took Ronda to the closest ER. By the time they arrived, the chocolate had melted enough for the candy to dislodge on its own.
18Her armlock submission against Cat Zingano at UFC 184 on February 28, 2015, set the record for the fastest submission in a UFC title fight at an amazing 14 seconds. The previous record of 16 seconds had been set at UFC Fight Night 13 in 2008 by Marcus Aurelio. She ties the all-time fastest submission win in promotion history.
19Her favorite Pokemon is Mew.
20Her mother has a policy of calling all of Ronda's boyfriends Bob, and assigns a number to differentiate one from another. As of 2014, Ronda's last boyfriend was "Bob 6".
21Is a Gamer and enjoys playing "World of Warcraft", "Mario Cart", and "Just Dance". She also serves as a storyline consultant for the educational video game company, 7 Generation Games.
22In November of 2012 she became the first female fighter to sign a contract with the UFC.
23In August of 2014 she was ranked #8 Pound-By-Pound fighter in the world by the UFC, ahead of Johnny Hendricks (#10), Vitor Belfort (#11) and Alexander Gustafsson (#13).
24Ronda has graced the covers of magazines Black Belt : May 2012, ESPN The Body Issue : September 2012, ESPN 15th Anniversary Issue : May 2013, UFC 360 : August 2013, Maxim : September 2013, and the UK's Fighter's Only : October 2013.
25Ranked #42 on Maxim's Hot 100 for 2014.
26Her father Ron Rousey committed suicide when she was eight years old. He had a rare disease called Bernard-Soulier Syndrome, a hemophilia-like disorder where the blood can't clot, which he didn't know he had. He broke his back in a sledding accident and it wasn't healing. His doctors told him that because of his condition, he had two years to live. First he'd become a paraplegic. Then he'd become a quadriplegic. Then he would die. So he killed himself to keep his family from going into debt and spare his family seeing him slowly die.
27She suffered from damaged vocal cords after the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck during birth. Because of that, she wasn't able to speak until she was six years old.

#Quote
1He [Paul Walker] was a joy to be around. You could tell that everybody was just... they weren't all there for themselves. They were there for each other. I was really happy that I got to be one of the last people to witness that.
2I have this one term for the kind of woman that my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a Do-Nothing Bitch... a DNB. The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken cared of by somebody else.
3There's not a single muscle on my body that isn't for a purpose because I'm not a Do-Nothing Bitch. It's not very eloquently said, but it's to the point. And maybe that's just what I am. I'm not that eloquent, but I'm to the point.
4I want to be a perfect fighter, and that's one of those unattainable goals because you will never be perfect. But I can always be closer to perfect.
5The knowledge that everything good can be taken away at any second is what makes me work so hard.
6There have always been people who have written me off. They're not going away. I use that to motivate me. I'm driven to show them just how wrong they are.
7I'm more used to being booed by a crowd than I am being cheered. I have never been a fan favorite. Pretty much my entire competitive career has been defined by people hoping to see me lose.
8No one is ever going to give you anything of value. You have to work for it, sweat for it, fight for it. But there is far greater value in accomplishments you earn than in accolades that are merely given to you. When you earn something, you never have to worry about justifying that you truly deserve it.
9People want to project their own insecurities on others, but I refuse to allow them to put them on me. Just because you don't think that you could be the best in the world doesn't mean that I shouldn't have the confidence to believe I can do anything.
10One of the greatest days of my life was when I came to understand that other people's approval and my happiness were not related.
11It is not about just winning the round. It is not just about winning the fight. It is about winning every single second of your life.
12There were times when I knew I was in a terrible situation, but I also knew it wouldn't last forever. Those are the moments when you have to remind yourself that this experience is a defining moment in your life, but you are not defined by it.
13To be the best, you have to be constantly challenging yourself, raising the bar, pushing the limits of what you can do. Don't stand still, leap forward.
14Know when to explode and know when to relax - that's the only way to survive.
15Once you've conquered the worst things that could happen, there is no need to fear the unknown. You are fearless.
16There is nothing in my life that I would go back and change, even the darkest moments. All the successes and greatest joys in my life are a result of the absolute worst things. Every missed opportunity is a blessing in disguise.
17To get anything of real value, you have to fight for it.
18No drug or amount of money or favoritism can ever give you belief in yourself.
19[on how she celebrates after a win] Buffalo wings. I eat so many buffalo wings it is ridiculous. If I'm eating wings, I get a plate of like, 80 wings in front of me, and I have to get through at least 25 before anyone can get close, and they have to move a little bit just in case I don't eat them too, because I'm really disciplined coming up to my fight, and that's like my one big blow-out.
20[on the "Slaughterhouse in a Blouse" reference of her in the song "Shady XV"] Getting rapped about by Eminem is like getting armbarred by me. It might not be so pleasant if you're on the other side of it, but it's so skillfully done you have to be honored.
21If you saw the Batman where he had to make Aaron Eckhart look like the good guy and then himself look like the bad guy because that's what Gotham City needed . . . The women's division is Gotham City. And I am Batman.
22People love tough chicks. They love tough chicks that really embrace their femininity. Look at all the "Tomb Raiders" and stuff like that. Those movies are multi-million-dollar movies for a reason. If I could really be that person in real life, people are going to love it. That's what I kept thinking. "They love tough, empowered women." There is demand there. People just don't know it.
23[on learning from the men of The Expendables 3 (2014) cast] My dad taught me how to shoot when I was six years old. My mom taught me how to fight. And I just had to rely on Sly [Sylvester Stallone] and all those other icons to kind of give me advice and mentor me through the process.
24[on what she liked about the book "Athena Project"] It's very realistic. It's not gimmicky or "Charlie's Angels"-y. It's all based on truth and that's what I liked the most about it. It's strong women in a real environment. These women actually exist in real life. It's not made up.
25Bubble wrapping society is no way to make people more peaceful. MMA is the safest way for people to really get that natural aggression and frustration out.
26[on trash talking] If something's funny or witty and true then I'm gonna say it because . . . why not?
27I saw her [her younger sister] walking around the house in those Skechers and I was like, "What are you doing wearing porno shoes? Take those off!". And I just realized, "What is going on with this world right now? Why is this girl [Kim Kardashian West] even associated with footwear?". I don't understand. She obviously didn't spend that much time on her feet.
28I don't want every girl to have the same ambitions as me but I want them to be ambitious. I'm tired of seeing girls that shut up and have no ambition being idolized as what's attractive.
29You call me arrogant? I say it's an accurate self-assessment because I work my ass off to be as good as I am at what I do and I'm proud of myself.
30No matter how much you try or what you say, people aren't going to fully understand you or where you're coming from. You just have to get used to being misunderstood.
31[on being cut and edited to be portrayed as the bad girl on The Ultimate Fighter (2005)] It was what was needed most at the time for the girls, and I was happy to play that role. I was happy to be the bad guy.
32[on filming The Expendables 3 (2014)] Since it was just me and a bunch of dudes all the time, I thought the best way to break all the sexual tension that there would be was . . . I would have to out-innuendo and out-do all of them. So I was number one with all the innuendo all the time, and I made everyone comfortable doing it.
33I love fighting because I get to have a big battle every couple of months to make up for the little battles I had to forfeit everyday.
34I used to make up super heroes and stuff in my head. I loved Dragon Ball Z. That was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid because all the super heroes had to work and train really hard to be more even super and beat the next guy. And I invented in my head, a girl saying that I would fight and be with them and stuff. When I was little I had to make up and imagine up these girl role models that weren't there.
35[on her heated rivalry with Miesha Tate] As a fighter I completely respect Miesha. I think that she's an amazing fighter and she's a tough chick, and she definitely has my respect. She just doesn't have my affection.
36[on The Ultimate Fighter (2005)] We were not treated like the respected athletes and coaches that we were brought on there to be. All of us left with a really sour taste in our mouths. The gym is my safe place. It's where I retain my sanity, and they really bastardized that place for us.
37[on a possible UFC super fight with Gina Carano] I would love that. I've always said that. I never would've thought women's MMA existed if I hadn't seen her fight. I never knew there was such a thing until her. To fight her would be a real honor and I think a real milestone for the sport.
38[how her mom trained her to fight] Her attack line was, "Always be ready!" Sometimes she would wake me up in the morning and do what her coach used to do to her back in the day which was wake her up in the morning and be like, "You have to do an armbar right now! Always be ready!" She would jump on me and I'd have to do an armbar straight out of a sleep.
39[on Gina Carano] I love Gina. I think she's awesome. I wouldn't be a fighter if it wasn't for her. I wouldn't have thought that women's MMA would've offered a real career, that I could support myself off of it, if it wasn't for her. I've met her before and she's just the biggest sweetheart ever. I wish nothing but the best for her.
40I couldn't even speak coherent English until I was six. I didn't really have any friends. Nobody liked me. And so I always felt like sports is a metaphor for life, and everything that I learned through Judo and MMA, I just applied to every area of my life. And I'm very lucky that I had such a productive outlet from such a young age.
41I was really shy and quiet. I was never very popular in school. I was made fun of for being muscular a lot so I always wore really baggy clothes . . . just very introverted. I had like two lives. I would go to school and be this introverted loser kid that no one really knew, and then I'd go out on the weekends to these Judo tournaments and everyone's like, "Oh, Ronda! Ronda! Hey! Whazzup?" You know what I mean? Like I kinda had this separate life where I was cool and this other life where I was a loser.
42[on her fight with a group of men at a movie theater while watching Juno (2007)] She [girl sitting behind her] was knocking me in the head with her boot. They were that group of people that are just rude and loud throughout the whole movie. So I took her boot off and threw it after the movie, and I told her to go get some manners. And her boyfriend didn't like that, and her boyfriend's friends didn't like that. And so they headed me off in the aisle and told me to go get the boot. They wouldn't let me leave and they pushed me, and they wouldn't let me leave. I was technically in a "kidnap situation" . . . I learned this from my lawyer . . . Yeah, I was "fearing for my life" so I had to defend myself and I defended myself very well . . . and so they sued me.
43I used to have a big box of medals and I was going to put them on a frame around the room. I took all the ribbons off and I was going to post them, and then the cat peed in the box and my mom threw out all my medals because they were covered in cat pee. My mom just throws stuff out. She doesn't care about medals and trophies and all that stuff. It's like, "Oh my god, your mom must be so excited about it." No, not really. She threw all of it out.
44Sometimes I'm a much more energetic and embellished version of myself, but sometimes I do things just for a little extra flair. I'm doing what I need to do for the lifestyle that I want, and I feel like I'm putting enough positive things out in the world. And that's the best that I can do.
45[on how her life has changed since signing a UFC contract] Just a couple of months ago I held three jobs. I had no air-conditioning in my car. I was like, living off the Costco diet. We called it the bomb shelter diet, actually, because we would just go to Costco and buy everything that wouldn't expire.
46[her biggest inspiration] My mom is like an X-Men. She's unbelievable. She got a perfect score on the SATs at 16, graduated college at 19. She won the world championships in Judo as a single mother, working as an engineer, and getting her PhD . . . all at the same time. And then after my dad died she took a business from scratch and turned it into a multi-million-dollar company. She's absolutely amazing. Every single day I just try to be a little more like her because if I was doing that, I know I'm improving as a person.
47[on men being intimidated by her] Some guys are, but I feel like that just saves me time. If a guy is easily intimidated by a strong woman then that's obviously not the kind of man that I would be interested in anyway.
48People just live such pampered and soft lives now that sometimes we need to get a little bit hurt and get a little bit in a fight to be reminded that we're still humans, that we're not living in bubble wrap.
49If there's chaos, it's good. And I need to put myself in situations where people are going to doubt me because I don't ever want to be in that lose lose situation where if you win, it's like, "Oh, of course you won," and if you lose, it's the end of the world. I want everyone to tell me that I can't do it because that motivates me more than anything.
