Namajunas ascended to the top of the division after defeating Joanna Jędrzejczyk back at UFC 217, where he devastatingly knocked out the Polish fighter.
The fighter has seen her wealth and appeal rise massively since then, to the point that she is now one of the top names in Women’s mixed martial arts.
Namajunas received a big payout for her rematch against Jędrzejczyk at UFC 223, defending her newly won Strawweight title against the former Champion.
Jędrzejczyk earned a total of $240,000 for the fight. The actual contest itself earned ‘Thug’ $100,000, with $40,000 of the payout coming as part of the fight week incentive pay.
Namajunas also took home $100,000 as a win bonus after defeating Jędrzejczyk via decision to retain her belt.
Rose Namajunas Net Worth 2021
Namajunas has a net worth of around $1,500,000, according to The Sports Daily. This number is based on her time in the UFC and does not include her fights as part of Invicta FC.
The Strawweight fighter revealed in November 2021 that she is working towards being a farmer once her octagon career is over.
She said to BT Sport: “Obviously, I’m a martial artist and it’s primarily what I do most of the time but I’m working towards becoming a farmer.
“I’ve always had a love for nature and animals and I think that it’s just always been there and it’s always been something that I’m fighting for and I’m still doing it.
“And I’m doing it more and more as I get older and my garden is becoming bigger and bigger every year.
“I think it’s really important for all fighters to have that. I mean, unless, if you’re just like, you know, Khamzat [Chimaev] or somebody who just loves, like, just to get in there and that’s it. I think I used to be like that and now I don’t really enjoy always just hurting people for no reason.”
