      What does MayNOTWeather have to do with this? This was an award for best female athlete.

      • doug

        she said she could beat him in a mma fight…the truth is she couldn’t even touch him

        • V8Supercar1

          Of course she couldn’t touch him. Because we all know he would just duck her anyway just like he ducks his real competition in his own sport. By the way, UFC is definitely not a circus. MMA is the #1 combat sport in the world now. Boxing is an obsolete form of fighting.

            certainly things change but don’t forget everybody in UFC is on steroids !

            Mayweither is 37 and never lost in 46 fights so lets see Rousey in her next 10 fights…

          • V8Supercar1

            No they are not. The UFC have mandatory testing. Have some fighters broken the rules? Sure, but they got caught and paid the. Who cares what mayweather’s record is. Muhammad Ali is the greatest boxer of all time and he isn’t undefeated. Being undefeated in a sport thats dying, doesn’t mean much.

            lol, wake up every sport champions is under steroids or other shit not only ufc but baseball, basketball, all sports, all champions, all countries… and ufc close his eyes like everybody in usa because if not no more ufc, no more champions, no more dreams for innocent fans and no more MONEY !
            this is why i call it a circus, all is fake. I doesn’t mean they are not good but to be a champion you need juice because human body has his limit and the limits are the same more-less for everybody

          • doug

            of course sometimes some people get caught because they did it bad, they don’t respect the drug timing, we know Carl Lewis was on steroids and remember this in 20 years we will know Messi, Bolt, Nadal, Rousey, all the fucking champions were on drugs !

          • doug

            usa is not ready for the Truth, usa want the Amercan Dream, show must go on , ask Dana he wants just show, just jacky chan mma !

          • V8Supercar1

            My response to you is simple. Who cares?? Boxing is dead.

          • doug

            a lot of people love boxing but you right boxing is dead for us

          • doug
