Former UFC champion Jessica Andrade has been able to pay off their house and car bills through OnlyFans ahead of their big fight this month.
Ex-UFC women's strawweight champion Andrade is 1-3 in her last four fights heading into their clash with Cynthia Calvillo at UFC 266 on September 25.
She's moved to Las Vegas to train full-time and to help fund her switch of camps, the Brazilian joined OnlyFans under the advice of her wife Fernanda Gomes.
Unfortunately, though, leaked photos of her have since been leaked online and gone viral in Brazil - but the 29-year-old isn't upset.
"I wasn't upset because I already imagined it could happen," she told MMA Fighting. "I've seen that happen to other fighters as well... I wasn't upset because I did all this knowing that it would leak eventually.
"I'm 30 and my body won't look pretty for the rest of my life, so we have to enjoy it while it's nice. No one will want to see it later. [Laughs.] Better use it now, then when it's gone. But I wasn't upset. I thought it was funny because people did a lot of memes.
"If I had done [those photos] against my will, it would've been different. But I did that knowing it would probably happen. Not everyone is honest with you all the time. The photos were a package to one person but you don't know this person's heart and nature, and unfortunately that happened. But it was a learning experience. So, we do photos now, but only to the right people and the right way."

Andrade continued by revealing that she has paid off her car and 'six or seven' months of rent in advance through OnlyFans.
She added: "I paid off my car and six or seven months of rent [in Las Vegas] in advance. I haven't even used the money of my last fight's purse. I was able to pay my bills in Brazil, help my family and help Fernanda's family with OnlyFans' money.
"It's nice when you check your account and see the money is still there. You're like, 'My God, I'm buying a lot of stuff on Amazon, my house is like a market right now, and the account remains the same...'
"Even though the photos have leaked, it was only four or five photos.
"People think OnlyFans is just porn, but it's not only that. It's a platform to show your daily life, your fights, the things you do. I'm very happy with OnlyFans."
Andrade vs. Calvillo will open the main-card of UFC 266, which features bouts between Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler, Valentina Shevchenko vs. Lauren Murphy and Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega.
