Ronda Rousey didn’t take kindly to a feminist reporter’s question about equal pay during a press conference this week.
The reporter asked her to comment on the income inequality between men and women in sports.
“I think that how much you get paid should have something to do with how much money you bring in,” Rousey said. “I’m the highest paid fighter not because Dana and Lorenzo wanted to do something nice for the ladies — they do it because I bring in the highest numbers.”
“They do it because I make them the most money, and I think that they make should be proportionate to the money they bring in,” she said.
Rousey is currently the highest paid fighter in the UFC, male or female.
