Ronda Rousey Doesn’t Back Down From Floyd Mayweather Comments, Explains Why She Took Shots


After the ESPY awards, Ronda Rousey gloated over winning Best Fighter over Floyd Mayweather

Her clip from after the show went viral, in which Rousey commented:
I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once. I’d like to see you pretend to not know who I am now.

Rousey said that the feud between the two started last year when Mayweather claimed he didn’t know who Rousey (who he said was a “he”) was.

She calls him out again:
I know for damn sure he knew who I was. He was running against me for ‘Best Fighter’ that year and he had signed MMA fighters, so his feigned ignorance was meant to really be a snarky remark to me. I don’t let those kind of things slide, but I’m also a patient girl. I’m not the kind of chick you make snarky remarks about. I waited a whole year to say something. And you know what? If I didn’t win ‘Best Fighter’ this year, I would have waited two years or three years. It got a big reaction, and I’ve got a fight to sell. So great timing, huh? I’m not dumb.

Rousey’s next fight will be in just a few weeks against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 which takes place August 1, 2015 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
