Rose Namajunas is one of the most famous female UFC and MMA fighters at the moment and here is her net worth, payouts, and a lot more
|Net Worth (2021)||$1million|
|Last fight earnings||$160,000|
|Date of Birth||June 29, 1992|
Rose Namajunas has had a steady rise to fame. She made her name at Invicta FC before being one of the main contenders on The Ultimate Fighter: A Winner Will Be Crowned in December 2014.
She has competed in the women’s strawweight division and has taken part in some historic UFC title fights, especially her 2 fights against the Polish fighter, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. She hasn’t really fought that much recently and has been rather inactive.
In fact, she has had just 3 fights in the last 36 months. She would look to change that this year as the former strawweight champion wanted to win her crown back, and she did it against the impressive Zhang Weili at UFC 261.
Net Worth and Payouts
Rose Namajunas has a net worth of approximately $1million. Considering that female UFC fighters struggle to earn as much as their male counterparts, that is an impressive figure. That sum is also solely down to her career as a professional MMA fighter.
As for her payouts, she took home a cool $160,000 in her last UFC fight against Jessica Andrade at UFC 251. But that is not what the most she has ever earned from one fight.
Namajunas’ two title bouts against Jedrzejczyk saw her take home a combined $470,000. In total, the American has made close to $1.35million from her UFC payouts in total, and can expect to add a lot more to that in the coming years.
MMA and UFC Record
Rose Namajunas boasts an underwhelming 10-4-0 professional MMA record which becomes 8-3 when her time in the UFC is considered (including the TUF final in December 2014). The former champ has lost just once in her last 5 fights.
But that loss was telling. It came against Jessica Andrade where she failed to defend her belt that she won from Jedrzejczyk at UFC 217. She did manage to beat Andrade in a rematch, though.
But by then, the Brazilian had lost her belt to Zhang Weili of China at UFC Fight Night 157. Nevertheless, she had a chance to win back her belt and take her professional MMA wins to double figures at UFC 261.
Boyfriend, family, and endorsements
Rose Namajunas is the fiancée of former UFC and Glory heavyweight, Pat Barry. Namajunas is a hardcore Christian and an outspoken anti-communist. She doesn’t post much about her family on her social media accounts but shares a lot about her career inside the octagon on her Instagram account.
She was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Lithuanian parents and was named Rose after her great-grandmother’s name. Her nickname of ‘Thug Rose’ was given to her when she was young because of her intimidating scowl.
As for her sponsors, very little is known, but her sponsorship deal with Reebok is pretty prominent and she has also featured in a recent Super Bowl ad for Guaranteed Rate.
Namajunas had her revenge against Jessica Andrade in her last fight when she won on split decision. But there is a whole new challenge waiting for her next. Namajunas took on the current strawweight champion, Zhang Weili.
Namajunas built up the hype for this fight by oddly mentioning how she wants to beat communist principles by beating Weili, who wails from the communist China. The champ is on a serious winning streak, having not lost once in her last 20 fights.
However, Weili Zhang was defeated in incredible fashion by Rose thanks to a head kick. Rose won her title back and took her record to 10-4.
