    Obviously figures will have some discrepancy

    Ronda got paid ~$3 milllion

    Nunes got paid ~$200k

    Thoughts?

    No.

    Nunes will get a pay increase.

    Be a dominant champ that is also marketable, and Nunes' pay increase will jump substantially.

    Nunes was happy with it. The big factor is the PPV points that Nunes will get and Ronda brought in a massive slice of those viewers. If Nunes is happy then so am I

    All our moms came to see Ronda Rousey, not Nunes.

    Nah I'm like Mr Pink from Reservoir Dogs, I don't concern myself with other people's pay and I sure don't fucking tip.

    Pay is negotiated before the fight and finding out who wins the match. Rousey got what she was able to negotiate and so did Nunes. Needless to say, it was Rousey that put butts in the seats.

    Well, it only bothers me in that her highest disclosed payday comes after getting destroyed and embarrassed in her last fight.

    Yeah it made me a little upset. Ronda should have made at least $5 million. I'm sure she made more than that after points but she should have been guaranteed at least that much.

    Sort of...knowing the champ got ppv points helps. And if there is any truth to the rumors about "off the books" bonuses, I'm sure Amanda got some of that too.

    I am sure Nunes is happy she got to fight Rousey and should thank Rousey making it an easy payday (her PPV bonus increased ten fold also because of Rousey)

    If it wasn't for Ronda, Nunes wouldn't be able to be in a position to make that much, so no.

    3 million to never see Ronda again? Worth every penny.

    They are both disgustingly over-paid. 45 seconds to get paid all that money, without doing any media or nothing. They are stealing for a living.

    I dont care about other peoples pay but i think its kind of an insult that nunes only got 100k minus the win bonus. She should have atleast got like 300k she was being paid peanuts as a champion.

    Ronda was the champ for way longer than Nunes.
    Nunes is getting more that she got before, and she is happy with it.

    So I don't see any problems with this.

    Almost nobody that's not a mma fan knows who nunes is. Everybody knows who Ronda is.

    Funny how quickly people forget that she was literally the reason why womens MMA was introduced in the UFC. She dominated the division with 6 straight title wins including 3 straight finishes under 1 minute, two of them under 20 seconds lol. She needs better coaching to evolve against the new elite strikers coming up.

    Someone with her star power is worth every penny of that 3M which is roughly 62,500 per second she fought.
