Ronda Rousey and her former manager, Fight Tribe Management President Darin Harvey, have finally reached an agreement to settle their long-running legal dispute.
Rousey had been in litigation over the terms of their management agreement dating back to March 2014, which followed shortly after Rousey and FTM separated. The two parties announced the agreement Friday afternoon.
FTM began managing Rousey in 2010, just as “Rowdy” Ronda made the transition from Olympic judoka to full-blown MMA fighter. While under FTM’s management, Rousey became a highly successful professional fighter. She tore through the amateur ranks and showed no signs of slowing down as a pro as she went 8-0. Her success and star power allowed her to become the first female fighter to ever sign with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
“Darin was there from the very beginning, and I sincerely appreciate his and his team’s contributions when I needed them most,” Rousey said in a statement.
“I am glad Ronda and I were able to work things out,” Harvey responded. “I am rooting for her to reclaim her belt and I wish her continued success in all of her endeavors.”
Exact terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
