    Who are some of the people that come to mind who found great success AFTER they retired from MMA?

    Obiously Ronda Rousey became a big WWE star...

    Even though everyone of sherdog hates the guy, Brendan Schaub is a successful comedian and has multiple podcasts and other businesses.

    Lower key I would say Kyle Kingsbury who has a leading role in product development with ONNIT and also has a very successful podcast.

    Who else comes to mind?

    I don’t know how popular it is, but Bisping has his podcast.

    I think Koscheck has made a load of money in property aswell although I may have imagined that.

    Guys like Mike Dolce and George Lockhart also did very well despite having pretty average MMA careers.

    Brendan Schaub ... I know a lot of you guys hate him but he clearly makes very good money off his podcast.

    fucken tito,
    thinking that being a ufc champion and getting into the hall of fame in a private company is a good enough reason to vote someone into office.

    schaub is the most surprising one to me. i'm amazed at the amount of people who find his opinions interesting lol. actually, i take that back. his takes on mma are decent, since he was a fighter. everything else is just crap.

    Dan Hardy, even though he's bragging everywhere that he'll come back (no he won't).

    Probably Schaub...never accomplished anything on MMA, yet he is balls deep into Showtime...podcast(s) and not so sure if successful, but a comedy career while at it, cant stand the guy, have only watched his podcast when he had Chris Delia as guest, never watched any of his other Showtime content.

    Is Ronda still with WWE?

    There are a few that have landed UFC gigs, but not sure of those should count.

    GSP: he does a lot of ads, he's active on social media, he works for the french version of tsn and will be paid by Disney cause he's supposed to retake his Batroc role for Winter Soldier and Falcon serie or something
