Ronda Rousey, Floyd Mayweather Feud Heats Up as Money Man Throws Weak Jab

by at .

With her jaw-dropping 34-second knockout of Bethe Correira last week, Ronda Rousey once again established herself as one of sports world's the most dominant fighters.

But while her performances in the ring are often over in less than a minute, Rousey has been engaged in a different kind of combat for several weeks now, and her opponent clearly has no intention of throwing in the towel.

Yes, we're talking about Rousey's feud with ludicrously high-paid boxer and amateur woman-beater Floyd Mayweather.

The beef started at last month's 2015 ESPY Awards where Rousey won Fighter of the Year and took the opportunity to respond to Mayweather's claim that he'd never heard of her.

She also hit the Money Man where it hurts with a subtle, yet devastating diss about Mayweather's long history of violence against women:

Down goes Mayweather! Down goes Mayweather!

Most fight fans figured Floyd wouldn't even attempt to respond to that mic drop moment, but in an interview on ESPN yesterday, Mayweather finally hit back:

"I just say that, I’ve yet to see any MMA fighter or other boxer make over $300 million in 36 minutes," Mayweather said. "You know when she can do that? Call me.”

Hey, did you know Floyd Mayweather makes a lot of money? Of course you did; it's literally all he talks about.

He's basically the Donald Trump of boxing. The only differences are that Trump has a slightly better relationship with women, and people actually expect Mayweather to win.

Anyway, here's hoping Floyd and Ronda come face-to-face at some point so she can bring tears to his eye with a crippling armbar.
