ronda rousey

She is the face of women’s MMA.  She’s one of the most famous fighters – regardless of gender – in the world.  She’s graced the cover of ESPN The Magazine.  She’s an Olympic bronze medalist.  She’s the reason 99% of the people who watched last Saturday’s Strikeforce: Rousey vs Kaufman telecast tuned in.  So why is Jacare making more than double what Ronda Rousey is?
