UFC's pound-for-pound king Kamaru Usman might rule over the welterweight division, but his net worth is dwarfed by the UFC's most famous ring girl.
The current UFC Welterweight Champion has a net worth of $3million (£2.5million), according to Sportsbrief. While UFC ring girl, and former Playboy model, Arianny Celeste, boasts an impressive net worth of $4million (£3.3million), just under a million more than Usman.
The 36-year-old has been a mainstay of Dana White's promotion since 2006, and she has won Ringcard Girl of the Year at the World MMA awards six times. But Celeste also boasts business ventures away from the Octagon, leading to her sizeable net worth.

Away from the UFC, Celeste has modelled nude for Playboy – and her 2010 edition flew off the shelves becoming Hugh Hefner's highest-selling mag of the year.
The 36-year-old hasn't just limited herself to Playboy, and she has also posed for Sports Illustrated and FHM. Celeste also runs an OnlyFans page as well as investing in property to boost her net worth.
Celeste's stock in the UFC is that high she was even included in UFC video games for EA Sports. The model featured as an Octagon girl in UFC Undisputed 2010, UFC Undisputed 3, EA Sports UFC, and EA Sports UFC 2.

When UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov questioned the need for having ring girls in the sport, Celeste was quick to bite back: “For 15 years we have been more than just ring girls,” she said on Instagram.
"We have dedicated time in promoting UFC and showing love and time to our die-hard fans through touring the world and personal appearances. And while the world is very different right now, I can still feel that energy and love every time we have a show with an audience.”
Celeste has been a staunch defender of ring girls, with even Ronda Rousey finding herself in Celeste's firing line in the past.
Usman will face Leon Edwards for the second time in the early hours of Sunday morning – having already beaten the Brit in 2015 when the pair were both relatively unknown fighters.
The Nigerian Nightmare said after the weigh-in: "So much has been said. Leon’s said a lot and he truly believes that but one thing I have to say is… Taking what from who?”
When the pair meet in Salt Lake City it will be Usman's sixth title defence.
