The only female athletes who earned more than Rousey in the past year were Serena Williams ($28.9 million) and Maria Sharapova ($21.9 million).

Rousey didn't crack the top 100 highest-paid athletes but UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor did, as the first MMA fighter to land on the list after he earned $22 million over the past year for his fights and endorsements.
