Ronda Rousey Takes Shot At Floyd Mayweather After Winning Espy

The best part of Rousey winning is hearing her gloat afterwards.

Even if you watched Wednesday night’s ESPY awards, you didn’t see the award given for Best Fighter. The non-televised award was given to Ronda Rousey, who beat out Floyd Mayweather. And Rousey enjoyed every minute of it.

Rousey did a short interview with ESPN following her award, and immediately took a jab.

“I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” she said. “I’d like to see him pretend to not know who I am now.”

One could argue Rousey is simply joking. But c’mon. All jokes are half truth, right?

Just to refresh your memory, Mayweather is a widely-known abuser. 

There is no doubt Rousey deserves this award. While Mayweather is being stripped of titles, Rousey is becoming a transcendent talent who is completely dominating a sport unlike any athlete we’ve seen this decade.
