Floyd Mayweather's domestic abuse cases have been well documented over the years and came to the surface big time when he fought Manny Pacquiao in the awful mega fight earlier this year. Ronda Rousey, who may be the most dominating athlete in the world if you've seen her fight won the Best Fighter ESPY last night and then took the fight to Mayweather afterwards.
"She's strong and she's strong enough to beat Floyd Mayweather in MMA," Pacquiao told ESPN.
Being the good sport she is, Rousey took those comments in full stride and ran with them. In an interview with Access Hollywood earlier this year, she said she doesn't think her and Mayweather would ever fight unless "we ended up dating," which was a clear jab at his dark history of domestic violence. Meanwhile, Mayweather denies knowing entirely who "he" is.
But it turns out that Rousey isn't done. After winning
the Best Fighter ESPY on Wednesday – beating out a field that included Mayweather – she hit him where it hurts most.
"I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once," Rousey said. "I'd like to see him pretend to not know who I am now."
Good for her. It's not surprising that in a male dominated sport like the MMA and UFC, Ronda Rousey is its biggest star.
