Ex-UFC star, 37, sells pictures of her feet and sends fans her SOCKS for $150

A former UFC star is continuing to make bank by selling her used socks and pictures of her feet to her adoring fans – taking in more money than she did as a fighter.

Felice Herrig, 37, who announced she was stepping down from her career at the Ultimate Fighting Championship last month before signing a deal with Bare Knuckle Fight Club earlier this month, has told TMZ she is living comfortably with the profits she is making off OnlyFans.

She uses the adult photo subscription service, she said, to take pictures of her feet.

Some fans with foot fetishes have asked for more up-close looks, Herrig revealed, which she said she is happy to provide.

Others, she said, have asked to buy her used socks, which she is now selling for $150 each.

The money she gets from these pictures and sock sales, Herrig said, are allowing her to fight at her leisure rather than have to constantly fight to make money.

Herrig first started her OnlyFans account while recovering from a pair of knee surgeries that kept her sidelined for nearly two years, according to MMAFighting.com.

She was not making any money at the time because fighters are only paid when they fight, Herrig explained, so she started the page to allow her to rest and recover.

‘I probably would have come back a lot sooner from my injury if it wasn’t for OnlyFans, because I would have had to,’ she said on The Fighter vs. The Writer. ‘I probably wouldn’t have been ready, and I was at least ready for this fight.

‘Now with OnlyFans, I get paid weekly, and I’m not struggling to get paid, and I can take care of my body the way a professional athlete needs to take care of their body,’ she continued, noting: ‘I made ridiculous money on OnlyFans.’

Herrig attributes at least some of that success on the site to her name and brand, but she said, ‘it’s also nice because it allowed me to work on the recovery that I needed to do.

‘OnlyFans made it where I’m not desperate to fight again,’ she said. ‘I actually make more money from that than I ever made in fighting – and I made good money in fighting.

‘But when you break it down to the fact that you only get paid when you fight, it does make things stressful on you when you’re not getting paid to sit on the sidelines, when you’re not being helped out.’

Herrig had been a mixed martial artist with UFC since 2009, going on to compete 24 times – including on the televised UFC Fight Night.

But after a while, MMAFighter.com reports, the competition started taking a toll on her body and she began to look for opportunities elsewhere.

Finally, she signed on with Bare Knuckle Fight Club earlier this month.

‘BKFC is very excited to announce this major signing today,’ President David Feldman told USA Today on July 5. ‘Felice was one of UFC’s most popular fighters during her eight years with the company, and sees an opportunity to succeed in bare knuckle fighting.

‘We have a wealth of talented and tough female fighter and look forward to watching her compete in the squared circle,’ he added.

Herrig now says BKFC is a perfect fit for what she’s truly passionate about in fighting, revealing to TMZ she was not much into mixed martial arts.

‘Now it’s coming full-circle,’ she said. ‘I get to go back to doing what I love, and actually, boxing has always been my number one.’
