Former UFC strawweight Felice Herrig revealed she sells used socks online and makes more money than she ever did fighting.

Herrig is coming off a submission loss to Karolina Kowalkiewicz in her last outing at UFC Fight Night 207 in Las Vegas, Nevada. She hit a skid in her professional career that saw her drop four in a row to notable opponents, including Michelle Waterson-Gomez, Virna Jandiroba, and a previous loss to Kowalkiewicz.

Following her latest defeat in June, Herrig announced her retirement from the sport. She hung up the gloves after over a decade with a record of 14-10. The former kickboxer announced her switch to bare-knuckle boxing shortly after as she signed with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.

In an interview with TMZ, Herrig shared that she resorted to selling dirty socks for cash and photos of her feet on OnlyFans ahead of her return to competition.

“I’ve always had people who are obsessed with my feet. I’d just bought a house and was dipping into my money, but I thought people really love my feet so maybe I’ll start an OnlyFans. If you like feet, I’m your girl!

“I sell my socks. They want them used..or dirty. The more days I wear them the more they’ll have to pay for them.

Herrig Has Moved On From MMA

“Lil Bulldog” made her first appearance under the UFC banner against Heather Clark at “The Ultimate Fighter 20”. She cleared the bracket first round before losing in the quarterfinals to Randa Markos. Next, she matched up with Lisa Ellis, who she defeated in the season finale.

Herrig faced off against Paige VanZant in her promotional debut and lost by unanimous decision. The 37-year-old Illinois native racked up a four-fight win streak before reaching the tail end of her career.

During the same interview, she expanded on returning to striking-based competition.

“I started off as a kick-boxer..but to have a career you had to go to MMA. I was already a professional boxer when that happened. So …read more
