    She represents what the UFC is all about very well.

    Why arent all UFC fighters making and advertising their own shirts - they will make more then the $3 from rebook and sell them at a cheaper price

    Why isn't everyone going to med school and becoming a doctor?

    Is Schaub selling 33,000 TFATK T-shirts in 2 days with no marketing?

    NAH!

    For sure leave the biggest cash cow for some plastically enhanced DNB dummy.

    Medical schools don't accept applications from people who don't know the difference between "then" and "than".

    Ronda be making that cheddar now. People still want to hate and say she isn't the biggest star in the UFC. She certainly is, whether you like it or not.

    I had three different people/couples/MMA noobs call or text me the day of her fight to see where I was watching it.

    How is Meltzer privy to such information? Serious question.

    Crappy managers, ignorance, and sometimes just sheer laziness.

    Plenty of fighters sell their own gear. It takes some work and effort to set up the production and distribution as well as marketing to actually sell them.

    You would be shocked at how many fighters don't have their own web sites, don't bother updating their social media, and put in less than minimal effort in terms of promotion and merchandising. It's like they expect the UFC to do everything for them.

    It reminds me of a dentist I knew. We got talking about the business of dentistry and he told me that the biggest mistake that new graduates make is that they think they're in the business of being a dentist, when really they're in the business of SELLING dentistry services.

    Every fighter is a business, so if you don't treat it as a business you'll always make less money than the person who does treat it as a business.

    33,000 x $25 = $825,000 in 2 days.

    Absolutely nothing to do with UFC/Reebok. Never wore it during fight week.

    Why are all these fighters bitching about sponsors dropping them again? Don't bitch about the UFC and Reebok if you can't make any money unless if you're on the UFC stage, that's your fault.

    What a dumb argument. 99% of the UFC roster isn't at the star level that Rousey is, or is getting the opportunities Rousey's getting due to a variety of circumstances. Charles Oliveira isn't going to sell 33,000 $25 shirts in two days.

    Go sit in the corner and think about what you just said.

    Most fighters are not trying to sell their own t-shirts because it would not be worth the effort for the amount of sales they would get.

    Rhonda has been on ESPN and pretty much every major TV network making guest appearances on Kimmel etc. Of course her DNB slogan (which is pretty genius) is going to catch on. Women lover her.

    No, go sit in the corner and think about what YOU just said.

    This self-defeatist mentality of yours is why you will never achieve anything in life. When Ronda Rousey started fighting, WMMA was a circus show inside a fringe sport with little to no prospect, it wasn't even in the UFC. Not even her team mates thought she could make much money off of it. Her no.1 fanboy Edmond thought she was a joke and couldn't give 2 shits about her. Instead of sitting on her ass bitching about "unfair circumstances" and "lack of opportunities", she went out there and changed the circumstances and convinced others to give her the opportunities. Hello?

    All these fighters bitching about UFC's draconian practise and the Reebok pay should take a lesson from her book. Don't blame the circumstances, go change the circumstances. A 135 lbs girl is showing everybody how it's done and making them look like slobs.
