UFC 276 winner Israel Adesanya has lower net worth than ‘Ring Girl of the Year’

UFC 276 winner Israel Adesanya’s net worth is stunningly lower than that of a former ‘Ring Girl of the Year’.

The middleweight champion extended his MMA record to 23-1 with a shrewd display to convincingly beat American challenger Jared Cannonier on points. It cemented the New Zealander’s position as one of the most dominant UFC middleweights in the sport’s history as he successfully made his fifth title fight defence.

But the trash-talking 32-year-old will be stunned to learn all of his fights have still not helped him amass the same net worth as UFC hottie and ring girl Brittney Palmer – who was crowned Ring Card Girl of the Year in 2019.

Palmer – who has 1.2million followers on Instagram alone – has racked up an enormous amount of money during her time in the limelight as one of the promotion’s most famous ring girls. Her glittering career inside the ring has earned her an estimated $5million (£4.1million)

The 35-year-old’s staggering wealth has also come as a result of her forays outside of MMA, having launched her own OnlyFans page which gives fans exclusive access into her life. She once famously went toe-to-toe with UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov after he controversially took a dig at ring girls by calling them the “most useless people in the sport”.

Palmer hit back by brutally trolling the Dagestani fighter with a meme, but it turns out she has now defeated another UFC champ in Adesanya – this time in terms of net worth. The flamboyant MMA striker has amassed a net worth of around $4m (£3.3m) from classic fights against the likes of Robert Whittaker and Kevin Gastelum.

Adesanya’s highly successful YouTube channel also boasts over 750,000 subscribers, while endorsements from Reebok, Puma and EA Sports have also boosted his earnings.

It still leaves the Nigerian-born superstar someway off Palmer, though it remains to be seen whether his victory over Cannonier will allow him to overtake the brunette beauty.

According to The Sports Grail, Adesanya is expected to make comfortably north of $1million from the clash which could tip the scales in his favour.
