She may not be the champ, but she’s still in big demand — and that was enough for Fanatics Authentic.
Ronda Rousey is the latest exclusive athlete for Fanatics, the company announced on Thursday afternoon. She joins a roster that already includes Kris Bryant, Peyton Manning, Stephen Curry and Alexander Ovechkin.
“We’re really excited to partner with Ronda and create a collection of unique UFC memorabilia that caters to her widespread fan base,” said Ross Tannenbaum, President of Fanatics Authentic. “As one of MMA’s most-decorated stars, we couldn’t be more proud to add Ronda to our list of exclusive athletes.”
She’s the only woman listed on Fanatics’ exclusives list and is just the second MMA star to sign on with the company. The other is Conor McGregor.
They appear together on a signed photo of their EA Sports UFC 2 video game over — a $349.99 piece that’s among her signed items already available from the company.
A standard 8-by-10 photo of her against Cat Zingano from UFC 184 is the cheapest item at $99.99, while her appearances on Sports Illustrated are among the more-affordable items as well. Her debut issue can be had for $119.99, while her Swimsuit Issue cover is $10 more. You can see the full lineup of items available right here.
Terms of her deal were not released, but Fanatics Authentic will be the only distributor of authentic Rousey signed memorabilia.
