Ronda Rousey, Floyd Mayweather Argue Over Who Makes More Money


Ronda Rousey’s consistent digs at Floyd Mayweather’s history of domestic abuse may not have gotten the boxing pound-for-pound king’s attention in the past, however it appears that Rousey has finally found the subject that strikes a nerve with “Money” Mayweather, that of course being — money.

TMZ Sports caught up with the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion recently, and “Rowdy” Ronda didn’t have to say much to get Mayweather’s attention, the same way — as she explains — that it doesn’t take her nearly as long as Mayweather to earn her millions of dollars in combat sports.

“[Floyd] said ‘You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call’ … and I actually did the math and given the numbers of my last fight, I’m actually the highest paid UFC fighter and I’m a woman,” said Rousey. “I think I actually make 2-3 times more than he does per second … so when he learns to read and write, he can text me.”

Rousey, alluding to the fact that she wins all of her fights in a matter of seconds, while Mayweather uses all of his 36 scheduled minutes to earn his high-dollar victories, clearly struck a nerve this time, as Mayweather was much quicker to respond to her than he has been in the past.

Through a “TMT” spokesperson, Mayweather fired back at Rousey, writing, “Big bank take little bank. Let’s play and see how much money you got.”

He concluded, “Last time I checked I was #1 on Forbes. She will never be at my status. Keep trying to get publicity.”
