White 'shocked' how much Rousey makes in Hollywood


Dana White previously said that Rousey would never make anywhere near what she makes in the UFC in Hollywood doing movies. But at last night's pre-fight press conference he did admit that it was higher than had thought it would be:

“Ronda’s making a lot of money [in movies],” White revealed Thursday. “Ronda’s getting paid. I’ve never seen somebody go straight from [the UFC] and go into the movies and make the kind of money she’s making.

“I didn’t even think that was possible. But she is, so good for her.”

“Everybody keeps talking about, ‘What happens if she leaves and goes to Hollywood?’ What happens if she leaves and goes to Hollywood?” White asked. “How is that bad for us? How is that bad for the sport? Is ‘The Rock’ being a huge superstar bad for the WWE?”

Only time will tell if her success in Hollywood will lead to a permanent departure from the UFC, but banking on her life long career as an athlete it's likely Rousey will stay in the UFC for the immediate future.

Why does this ass clown tell people Rhonda's business ? So tired of Dana's bullshit. Time to fade into the shadows Dana no one wants to hear your bullshit.

Perhaps worth considering not dying in the octagon, but what can you do, once the commitment is made its a bad look to go back on it and like not die

It would be more shocking if the commisioner of the NBA or NFL had made the statement, or at least less obvious.

I think Ronda likes fighting, i doubt she steps away for a while. I would suggest less bitching about her and appreciate her skills while shes here.

Agreed, plus when Rock made the serious transition to movies he was already a huge star. He was headlining events in a show that was breaking cable ratings records every week. He was very close to a household name. People would go see a movie just because the Rock Washington in it. Ronda Rousey? Not so much.

The Rock being a star is good for the WWE because he continues to come back. If the Rock ever leaves permanently then it would be bad, just the same if Ronda ever leaves for good.
