    The people in a popular sport make millions and never have to work again. Most come from upper middle class to rich families though.

    Maybe if you won more than a bronze you could make some money.

    Ronda thinks the country owes her a job and an education because she was in the Olympics?

    :rolleyes:

    It's a Cesar Gracie Fight Team rule that when you complain about money, you must mention Hondas.

    The Olympians in China and Russia are probably better treated but then they own you

    I don't understand what she is saying. Is she saying olympians are useless or its useless to be an olympian? i didn't read the article because I don't care.

    It's a choice she made. She can talk about "doing all for your country", but in the end, you practice a sport for yourself. It shouldn't be a government priority to look after athletes.

    Hahah nice.

    Rousey is right though.. the olympics are concidered the greatest achievement for an athlete, but they don't get paid a fraction of what "pop" athletes get. Such is life I guess-pure business.

    All the Brazilian fans have a hard time distinguishing the two.

    I don't have a problem with this rant at all.

    but...coaching? I'm pretty sure if you're an Olympian, any number of colleges or other elite training schools will be chomping at the bit to get you. Will this supplement you for life? Maybe not.

    There's also endorsements and other ways to market yourself as an Olympian
