The reigning pound-for-pound king of boxing, Floyd Mayweather, once claimed he didn’t know who UFC mega-star Ronda Rousey was. Well, “Rowdy” Ronda has certainly hit “Money” Mayweather’s radar now.
Rousey, who won two ESPY Awards this week — one for Best Female Athlete of the Year, and one for Best Fighter of the Year — where she beat out Mayweather, who defeated Manny Pacquiao in the most lucrative boxing match in history this year, took to the stage to accept her award, and took a shot at Mayweather in the process.
“I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” said Rousey. “I’d like to see him pretend to not know who I am now.”
Ronda Rousey defends her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship against undefeated contender Bethe Correia next month in Brazil.
