Rose Namajunas will defend her Strawweight title against Zhang Weili at UFC 268 this weekend, but what is her net worth?
The ‘Thug’ won the belt after a sensational TKO victory over the Chinese fighter at UFC 261 back in April. Rose looked in control from the first second of the fight and finished Weili off in the very first round via a scary head kick.
Namajunas looked a completely different fighter at UFC 261 and fans can’t wait to see her back in action. Weili will be hoping to get her title back, but if the Thug fights like she did last time, that will not happen.
As we look forward to UFC 268 in New York this weekend, fans are curious to know Namajunas’ net worth. Here’s what we know…
‘Thug’ Rose Namajunas: Net worth in 2021
Namajunas made her UFC debut in December 2014 and has fought in the company’s events 11 times now. Her record in the promotion stands at eight wins and three losses, which is not bad at all.
According to FirstSportz, Namajunas’s net worth in 2021 is estimated to be a little more than $1 million. That includes her career earnings as a fighter as well as her endorsements with various brands.
Thug Rose is sponsored by Venum fight gears, RVCA Sport, Monster Energy, PERFECT sports and ONX Labs. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-born fighter is also a model for Community New York, a creative management company in the United States.
Who is Namajunas dating?
Namajunas is engaged to be married to former American mixed martial artist and kickboxer Pat Barry. The two have known each other for over a decade and have been dating for the last three or four years.
Barry was also a part of the UFC years ago. He made his debut at UFC 92 all the way back in 2008 and went on to fight 12 times in total for the promotion. His last fight came in 2013 against Soa Palelei at UFC Fight Night 33, where he was knocked out in the first round.
There is a 13-year age difference between Namajunas and Barry. The UFC champ is currently 29 while her soon-to-be-husband was born in July 1979, making him 42 years old now.
