Mayweather's Retort To Ronda Rousey Just Doesn't Add Up

It's a feud that keeps on giving after more than a year. From Rousey's emergence as a formidable UFC fighter, she's been firing shots at Floyd Mayweather and his history of domestic violence.

Her last quip at the undefeated boxer came after beating him at the ESPYS for the Fighter of the Year award:

I wonder how Floyd feels being beaten by a woman for once.

Of course, the boxer whose nicknamed 'Money', couldn't help but fire a response:

I've yet to see any MMA figher, or other boxer, make over $300 million in 36 minutes

When she can do that, then call me.

Mayweather is of course referring to his marathon bout with Pacquaio which went the full twelve rounds lasting the 36 minutes.


Of course, Rousey has never fought for 36 minutes. In fact, she rarely gets past 36 seconds. Rousey would need close to 70 fights to have a career that lasts 36 minutes in the Octagon.

Mayweather then tried to play things down, in typical Mayweather fashion:

A while back I didn't know who Ronda Rousey was, so I'm pretty sure she got upset. I want to say congratulations to Ronda Rousey and the UFC. You guys have done a tremendous job and I've won probably six or seven ESPYS for Fighter of the Year anyway. And I truly believe she deserves it. Congratulations to Ronda Rousey.

Which makes things very clear.

Turning to his own career, Mayweather did confirm that his next and 49th fight against Andre Berto on September the 12th will be his last, and ruled out any talk of a rematch with Pacquaio.

Number 49, this is it. I've had a tremendous career. I'm older, wiser and my health is more important than anything. September 12 is my last fight. All 48 fights played a key, but number 48 was the most important.
