UFCs Tai Tuivasa gifts his son a Rolex for Christmas

Tai Tuivasa was quite the Australian Santa Claus this year.

While “Bam Bam” is on a two-fight losing streak, he has cashed out the past 1.5 years inside the Octagon. The No. 5-ranked Heavyweight has received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus in four of his last five bouts, dating back to UFC 264, where he knocked out Greg Hardy (watch it here).

With all the extra money earned, Tuivasa decided to spurge on his son this holiday season, buying him a Rolex watch for Christmas.

“SHOUT OUT @cmeshinejewelry for helping me with my son’s Christmas Gift, it’s his first Rolex and I ain’t even got one,” Tuisvasa wrote on Instagram. “Keen for 2023 #MerryChristmas.”

Rolex is a luxury watch that — according to WristAdvisor.com — can cost anywhere from $6,500 up to $75,000. The cost of the watch that was given to Tuivasa’s son is unknown at this time.

Before his most recent fight at UFC Orlando, Tuivasa said he was skipping out on UFC Perth, which takes place Feb. 2023, to spend time with his family for Christmas. His son is probably super happy that he did.

Tuivasa is coming off his second consecutive knockout loss (watch it here) and is looking to rebound in 2023.
