ronda rousey

UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was recently pegged as the eighth-highest earning female athlete by Forbes.

Rousey earned $6.5 million from June 2014 to June 2015 according to the magazine. She is the lone combat sports athlete to make the list.

Tennis superstar Maria Sharapova was estimated at $29.7 million, with $23 million coming from endorsements. The rest of the list included Serena Williams, Carolina Wozniacki, Danica Patrick and Ana Ivanovic.

Rousey starred in films such as “Fast and Furious 7,” “The Expendables 3″ and “Entourage,” also releasing her autobiography, “My Fight/Your Fight.”

Inside the Octagon, the former Olympic bronze medalist has bested Cat Zingano and Bethe Correia in recent months. She is likely headed for a third meeting with Miesha Tate later this year.

Paul Daley

Paul Daley and Fernando Gonzalez will square off this September in a kickboxing match as part of Bellator MMA: Dynamite 1.

The bout is a featured attraction for the combination MMA and kickboxing card with Glory. The action goes down September 19 from the SAP Center in San Jose.

Tito Ortiz challenges Liam McGeary in the main event for the light heavyweight title, while Phil Davis, Emanuel Newton, Linton Vassell and Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal compete in a one-night tournament to crown the No. 1 contender in the division.

Along with Daley-Gonzalez, Zack Mwekassa faces Saulo Cavalari for the vacant Glory light heavyweight title and Gabriel Vega defends his featherweight belt vs. Serhiy Adamchuck.

“Glory has been a great partner for this event, bringing several world-class, championship kickboxing matches to the table,” Bellator MMA president Scott Coker said. “Daley and Gonzalez are two incredible strikers in our welterweight division, and we’re looking forward to seeing them lay it on the line with Glory gloves on their hands. It would be great to see the winner of this fight take on Glory’s welterweight champ Nieky Holzken in the future.”

Daley is a veteran of kickboxing, going 20-3 during his 13-year combat sports career. He is coming off a victory over Dennis Olson at Bellator 140. Gonzalez is a former WBC National Muay Thai cruiserweight champion.

“We’re thrilled to have athletes the caliber of Daley and Gonzalez testing their striking inside the ring” GLORY CEO Jon Franklin said. “Under GLORY rules, our fans know to expect non-stop action, and these two fighters that Bellator has selected are perfect fits. We’re expecting fireworks.”

It’s not Cowboy Stadium, but Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor have a date.

According to a report by Yahoo! Sports, the two will meet to unify the featherweight title on December 12 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Aldo, the reigning titleholder, was forced out of a planned fight vs. McGregor due to an injury. The Brazilian is 25-1 in his career and a perfect 7-0 inside the Octagon.

McGregor (18-2) scored his sixth UFC victory when he bested Chad Mendes for the interim title earlier this month.

The UFC put a lot of time and money into the planned UFC 189 main event, including a press tour that took both Aldo and McGregor all across the globe.

UFC president Dana White also confirmed that the Ronda Rousey-Miesha Tate bout for the female bantamweight belt “isn’t going to be on” the same card as Aldo-McGregor.
