Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather have been locked into a heated feud for quite some time now, but neither fighter seems prepared to let it go anytime soon.
Mayweather said that Rousey has never made the $300 million in 36 minutes that he made in his last comments about her, but Rousey is the latest to fire back as she responded to that comment with a witty statement of her own.
“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,” Rousey said. “I think I actually make two or three times more than he does per second. So, when he learns to read and write, he can text me.”
She also went on to mention that she was “more efficient” with her fights, insinuating that she gets her fights over with faster than the 36 minutes that Mayweather was talking about.
This is becoming one of the best rivalries in sports, but we likely won’t ever see these two actually get in a ring together.
Rousey has been open to fighting a man, although that likely won’t happen. It would certainly make more money in the amount of time that it ran than any other fight that either of them has done before.
All of that being said, we haven’t heard the last of the feud between these two. Mayweather will likely respond fairly soon to these comments from Rousey and we’ll hear from the female fighting superstar again soon after that.
Expect to hear some type of reply from Mayweather in the next week or two, if not sooner than that.
