FORMER MMA star Felice Herrig has been raking in the cash since retiring from UFC – by selling pictures of her FEET online.
The Buffalo-native, 37, decided to step away from the Octagon after suffering a fourth-straight defeat in June.
Herrig was unable to cope with Karolina Kowalkiewicz in their Vegas bout, losing by submission midway through the second round.
After almost two decades in the fight game, she retired from the UFC following the fight with a 14-10 record.
'Lil Bulldog' revealed to TMZ that she's now found a new way of supplementing her income while she relaunches her career as a bare-knuckle fighter.
Herrig has been selling pictures of her FEET online – and even flogging dirty socks to fans for $150.

And she revealed that the income she's generated has been a godsend since leaving the UFC world.
Herrig told TMZ: "[OnlyFans] has made a huge difference.
"After my first knee surgery, I wouldn't say I was broke but I had no money coming in.
"People don't realize, you're locked into this contract that you can't get out of, but you're not being paid to be in it.
"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.
"[A used pair of socks] cost $150."

Herrig made her UFC debut in 2015, losing by unanimous decision to Paige VanZant.
But she's been in the fight game for nearly two decades, with a troublesome knee injury causing her issues over recent years.
Herrig isn't sad to see the back of the Octagon and is relishing a switch back to her first love of boxing.
She continued: "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 I never loved MMA. I was always a striker, I had to get very good at grappling because I had to fight as a pro [straight away].
"Now it's coming full circle. I get to go back to doing what I love."
