UFC 274 star Rose Namajunas has net worth only half of UFC’s richest ring girl

UFC 274 star Rose Namajunas has a net worth which is only half that of UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste, despite her dominance in the Octagon.

The two-time and current UFC Strawweight Champion has swept through the competition in recent years, beating all of her last four opponents. Thug Rose, 29, heads into her rematch with Carla Esparza, who beat her in her 2014 UFC debut, on top of the sport.

Her 11-4 MMA record has seen her rack up an impressive $1.5million (£1.2m) net worth, according to The Sports Daily. But it pales in comparison to ring girl Celeste's mega fortune.

The 36-year-old model, who has also posed naked for Playboy alongside her duties for Dana White's promotion, is said to be worth $3million (£2.4m) by Celebrity Net Worth.

She joined the UFC in 2006 and has won Ringcard Girl of the Year six times at the World MMA awards. More recently she set up an OnlyFans account and shared a video for her fans for free earlier this year.

Celeste will be watching on in Phoenix, Arizona, as Namajunas looks to avenge her defeat to Esparza tonight (Saturday May 7) and retain her title which she has held for the best part of three years.

The Strawweight queen is confident of doing just that. “I think what I see is, I’m clearly the best,” Namajunas told MMA Fighting at UFC 274 media day.

“Obviously. It’s just a question of whether I’m the greatest in the division of all-time. And I think this is a huge step toward that for me, and that’s the big test.

“Joanna [Jedrzejczyk], I think, is probably [who people think about] most [when they think of the strawweight division]. Just during her time, she came around at a time where the level of competition just wasn’t even close to hers.

"So I think that I guess what I’m looking to do is to try to set myself apart, because I’m clearly the best, but I think in the last fight maybe it was kind of close, so I’ve really been working my butt off to just make sure that I can set that distance between all of us."
