Over the years, UFC has become one of the most popular sports entertainment companies in the entire world. This is largely because of the fact that they easily have some of the most athletic individuals in the entire world participating for them. This makes a lot of sense, as it requires its grapplers to have both speed and strength. The level of popularity that the UFC has reached has allowed its stars to make tons of money over the years. This is only going to increase as time passes by, as the sport is continuing to grow immensely.
A lot of UFC stars end up spending their money on spectacular cars. This article is going to look at 10 UFC stars who drive sick rides and 10 more who drive beaters. It is important to note that these vehicles will be coming from a wide variety of car manufacturers, so this will show the clear fact that these guys (and gals) have a deep understanding of the automobile world. However, some of these big names simply are driving cars that are extremely underwhelming, especially given the fact that they could be driving any car that they wanted. At the end of the day, these stars simply will drive what they want to and there's nothing anyone can (or would want to) do about it.
Now, let's look at these cars!
20 Sick Ride: Conor McGregor's Rolls-Royce Ghost
One would have to live under a rock if they have never heard of Conor McGregor. He is easily the most recognizable figure in UFC at the moment, even if he is recently retired. This makes a lot of sense, as he has a very eccentric personality and has had an abundance of success in the ring.
McGregor also is extremely active in pop culture, so he is finding new ways to continue to increase his income. This has resulted in him being able to land himself a very nice Rolls-Royce Ghost. This is a vehicle that every car enthusiast would love to obtain, as it truly is a classic.
19 Lemon: Forrest Griffin's Scion XB
Forrest Griffin has definitely been able to make a ton of money over the years. With that being stated, one may assume that he owns a top notch vehicle, but that does not happen to be the case. He currently sports a Scion XB, which definitely is a bit underwhelming.
It just seems like Griffin could be driving a far better car than this one. The Scion XB is not a car that comes with nice style, and it is often regarded as being quite slow. It just seems that there are so many better cars that Griffin could have chosen. This one seems like a total mistake.
18 Sick Ride: Chuck Liddell's BMW 760LI
Chuck Liddell is one of the biggest names to ever have come from the UFC. His impact on the company is still felt today, and this is a fact that will never change. There is no question that he has been able to make a boatload of money over the years because of this as well.
It is quite apparent that Liddell knows how to spend his finances, as he currently owns an absolutely beautiful BMW760LI. This vehicle is one of the best ones on the primary market at this time. This is because it has a great style to it and it runs in a very effective manner.
17 Lemon: Ronda Rousey's Honda Accord LX
Ronda Rousey can easily go down as one of the most famous UFC stars of all time. During her prime years, she was extremely dominant and would go on to win a plethora of matches. However, today, she is currently taking it a bit easier as a member of the WWE.
It is pretty intriguing to say this but Ronda Rousey was the proud owner of a 2005 Honda Accord LX for a number of years, even when she was making a lot of money. It is clear that this car clearly meant a lot to her. Although she has since moved on from it, one has to admire her loyalty to such a lemon.
16 Sick Ride: Tito Ortiz's Rolls-Royce Phantom
Tito Ortiz is one of the biggest names to have ever been a part of the UFC. Although he is retired today, the impact he has left on the UFC is still lingering. His amazing presence has allowed him to receive a ton of cash over his career and he clearly is using it well when it comes to his car.
Ortiz is one of the lucky individuals of this world who can state that they own a beautiful Rolls-Royce Phantom. This vehicle is easily one of the most iconic ones of all time, and that is why so many people desperately want to make this a part of their collections.
15 Lemon: Josh Kosheck's Hummer H2
Josh Kosheck currently owns a customized Hummer H2 and it is absolutely safe to call it a lemon. This vehicle was a complete and utter mess during its time on the primary market, as it was prone to having an abundance of issues. It just was not a solid car.
In fact, the H2 is one of the main reasons why the car manufacturer as a whole ended, as it would go on to tank its reputation. There is absolutely no question that Koscheck could be driving a far better vehicle than this one, as he has been able to make plenty of money during his professional career.
14 Sick Ride: Jon Bones Jones' Bentley Continental GT
Jon "Bones" Jones is easily one of the most controversial superstars in the UFC. It is clear that he is an amazing athlete, but he has been in his fair share of scandals. He lost his title after testing positive for PEDs and has been charged by the authorities in his personal life, so he does have his critics.
However, even with all of this occurring, he definitely has been able to maintain his spectacular salary. He is a fan of expensive cars, so this works out for him. He famously bought a very nice Bentley Continental GT and it definitely counts as a sick ride.
13 Lemon: Dominick Cruz's Toyota Tundra
Dominick Cruz is another UFC star on this list that drives a below-average vehicle. Now, the Toyota Tundra has been a truck that a lot of people have liked with specific years, but it also has been full of inconsistency. It is a bit surprising that a success like Cruz would sport this as his primary car.
This definitely can be deemed as one of the worst cars that any UFC star has driven. Although the Tundra is known for its power, it definitely has had its moments of being structured poorly over the years. At the end of the day, Cruz easily could afford a far better vehicle than this one.
12 Sick Ride: Rampage Jackson's Audi R8
Rampage Jackson is easily one of the most iconic names in UFC history. His eccentric attitude is what would draw so many people towards him, both as fans and critics. He has been able to obtain a ton of money throughout his career, which he has used a lot of it towards his car collection.
One vehicle that stands out immensely that he owns is his beautiful Audi R8. It is absolutely clear that this vehicle is one of the best ones in the primary market, as it is a luxury car that is able to reach blistering speeds with ease.
11 Lemon: Anthony Petis' Dodge Charger
Anthony Petis was once the owner of a Dodge Charger. However, misfortune struck when his a handful of his cars, including his Charger, were lit up by an unknown source. This definitely was a tough moment for the UFC celebrity and he let it be known through his social media.
Now, nobody would ever want to lose any car that they own, but it is clear that the Charger was a bit of an underwhelming car in his collection. These vehicles have been known for having a lot of problems with their engines and it just seems that Petis could have been driving a much better car than this one.
10 Sick Ride: Khabib Nurmagomedov's Mercedes-AMG GT
Khabib Nurmagomedov truly made a name for himself throughout the entirety of the UFC fan base when he surprised everyone and took out Conor McGregor in October of 2018. Since then, he has seen his net worth skyrocket and that is not going to change in the near future.
As a gift for his accomplishments, Nurmagomedov was given a Mercedes-AMG GT. There is no question that this is an absolutely outstanding vehicle, as it is able to reach extremely high speeds and is built very well. It is quite clear that this is a car that will be able to entertain him for a long period of time.
9 Lemon: Cain Velazquez's Ford F-150
Cam Velazquez is an individual who seems to love his pickups. He currently owns a customized Ford F-150, and there is no question that it is perfect when it comes to working conditions. However, it is also apparent that it is a bit underwhelming compared to what other UFC stars drive.
The Ford F-150 is easily one of the most popular pickups in the entire automobile world. Yet, it is not a car that is hard to get, as many people who receive average incomes are able to afford them quite easily. Customized or not, this pickup is clearly one that is a bit low on the list of cars driven by UFC members.
8 Sick Ride: Mairbek Taisumov's Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class
Mairbek Taisumov is extremely lucky, as he currently owns an absolutely beautiful Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. There is no question that this car is a top-notch one, as it has constantly been built in a very strong manner. Taisumov definitely has the income to have this car, as well.
There is no question that this vehicle counts as a sick ride, as it is hard to find a car that tops it. This has constantly been one of the most popular vehicles from this car manufacturer for a number of years, and this is obviously not going to change in the near future.
7 Lemon: Stipe Miocic's Dodge Ram Rebel
Stipe Miocic is another UFC star who you would expect to drive a fancy car. However, it can be reported that Miocic actually has opted to stick with his reliable Dodge Ram Rebel. It clearly is not a luxury car but it definitely possesses a lot of overall power for working conditions.
However, one has to wonder why Miocic chooses to drive this vehicle. There are clearly so many better ones out there that someone with his type of money can afford. It just seems as if his money is waiting for him to purchase a very nice luxury or sports car.
6 Sick Ride: Derrick Lewis' Lamborghini Huracan Twin-Turbo
Derrick Lewis has one of the best cars out of any of the biggest UFC stars. This is quite apparent, as he currently sports an absolutely beautiful Lamborghini Huracan Twin-Turbo. This vehicle has been praised for a long period of time because of its blistering speeds and outstanding style.
This is a vehicle that all car enthusiasts would love to add to their garages, as it clearly is extremely fun to drive. It should not come as a surprise that this vehicle comes at an extremely high price. This, of course, is normal because it truly is one of the best cars in the history of the automobile world—and then it had a couple of turbos bolted on.
5 Lemon: Max Holloway's Dodge Charger Daytona
Max Holloway is definitely is a UFC star who has been able to land himself a lot of money during his time in the ring. However, people may be surprised by the fact that he has opted to drive a Dodge Charger Daytona to this day. It is a bit underwhelming compared to what other UFC stars are sporting.
The Dodge Daytona is definitely not a bad car but it definitely is a vehicle that screams average. It has a lot of power to be productive in working conditions, but when seeing how rich Holloway is, it is underwhelming that he decided to drive a vehicle that does not have much flair.
4 Sick Ride: Michael Bisping's Maserati Quattroporte GTS
It is hard to find a faster vehicle than the Maserati Quattroporte GTS. With that being said, it is quite easy to understand why UFC star Michael Bisping drives his around with such great pride. It truly is a top-of-the-line sports car and we would all love to own one.
This is one of the top vehicles that any UFC star has ever driven. There is no question that this is a car manufacturer that is known for making their vehicles very fast, but they also are quite reliable. With all of this being stated, it is fair to state that this vehicle is absolutely a sick ride.
3 Lemon: Randy Couture's 1949 Chevrolet Pickup
There is no question that all car enthusiasts would love to have their very own 1949 Chevrolet pickup. This vehicle is definitely a classic and it makes sense that UFC star Randy Couture would decide to have one. However, it is strange that this is his primary vehicle.
One should never talk down the magnitude of importance of this pickup. Without it ever being released, there is a good chance that Chevrolet may have never become so popular. However, compared to today's sick rides of the present, it clearly is quite outmatched. With that being said, Couture clearly could be driving something far more elite.
2 Sick Ride: Antonio Silva's Maserati GranTurismo
Antonio Silva is easily one of the top grapplers in the UFC, and that is likely not going to change until he has finished his career. He currently is the proud owner of an absolutely beautiful Maserati GranTurismo. He would actually be given it after his win against Alistair Overeem.
This definitely is a fantastic vehicle, and he will forever hold it with an amazing memory. This is easily one of the most sought-after cars in the entire automobile world and this has been a fact for a number of years. There is no question that all car collectors would love to have it for themselves.
1 Lemon: George St. Pierre's Land Rover Range Rover
George St. Pierre is one of the biggest names in the history of the UFC. His career is definitely a solid one and that has allowed him to gain such a positive reputation over the years. However, when seeing that he drives a Land Rover Range Rover, one can state that it is a bit underwhelming.
Now, that is not to say that the Range Rover is necessarily an awful vehicle, but it clearly is not the best one in the entirety of the automobile. With the amount of money that St. Pierre has been able to obtain over the years, it is clear that he could have done so much better with his car selection.
