MMA has made its way to OnlyFans

In an interview with MMA Fighting, Bec Rawlings shared her experience starting and running her OnlyFans account. Huh.

“Look it’s been a game changer for me,” Rawlings said when speaking to MMA Fighting. “I’d be stressing and freaking out right now. I definitely wouldn’t be in the situation I’m in right now if I didn’t start my OnlyFans. I took the plunge and I’ve never really been one to care about what people think or say. I put myself out there and it’s definitely paid off.” – via MMA Fighting

The entire interview with Rawlings is well worth a read. The UFC’s ability to plow through a global pandemic and put on events is not the norm for the broader professional MMA community. Rawlings had previously kept busy in her post-UFC career, competing in Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and Bellator. Her last fight came in February of this year.

Many fighters work other jobs in addition to their fighting career, supplementing their income in various ways. But that is also hard to come by in a global pandemic. Shout out to Rawlings for the vulnerable interview and shedding light on some of the ways fighters are supplementing their income while many promotions are on hold.

Earlier this month two-time PFL featherweight tournament winner Lance Palmer threatened to lead a lawsuit against the promotion for their lack of action throughout 2020. Maybe he should consider starting up an OnlyFans?

MMA has made its way to OnlyFans, which is cool. A super-fight between Georges St. Pierre and Khabib Nurmagomedov would be cool too, regardless of the agreed upon weight. And regardless of what the narrative may be, nobody is afraid to fight Khamzat Chimaev. Just ask Michael Chiesa.

Huh? for the road
