Former UFC star Ronda Rousey has received the most money per strike landed on an opponent in a single fight, it has been revealed.

The 33-year-old became the first female fighter to be introduced into the UFC’s Hall Of Fame in 2018 after an impressive seven-year spell with the organisation.

She accumulated 14 wins from 16 total fights, setting the record for most title defences by a woman after retaining her bantamweight belt on six occasions before a shock defeat against Holly Holm.

Rousey then retired from mixed martial arts in 2016 to pursue a career in professional wrestling with WWE.

Like many of the UFC’s top talents, she made a fortune in the Octagon and has been named as the fighter to have claimed the most money for every strike landed during a single bout.

The California-born judo specialist placed above Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Anderson Silva in the list, revealed on Tuesday by Bonusfinder.

Rousey was paid an eye-watering £2.3million to fight against Amanda Nunez in 2016, a meeting that ended in defeat for the 33-year-old after she was knocked out inside 50 seconds.

The short nature of the bout meant that Rousey received £330,000 for each of the seven strikes that were successfully landed on Nunez.

McGregor is the UFC’s poster boy

Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo took second on the list, taking home £308,000 after landing just one punch on McGregor during the pair’s title fight in 2015.

The Brazilian was stopped after just 13 seconds of the highly-anticipated featherweight showdown in Las Vegas.

The Irishman, who will return to combat sport on Saturday night against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, placed third on the list having claimed £77,000 for each of his five strikes against Aldo.
