Mayweather Speaks On How Media Twist His Words; Has No Issue With Rousey Or McGregor (Video)
Seems as if it’s a reoccurring theme for top MMA fighters to call out Floyd Mayweather for whatever reason. Hasn’t worked out too well for the first 2 who have done it recently. 1st, Ronda Rousey took many shots at Floyd, she ended up getting folded like a lawn chair against Holly Holm. Then, Conor McGregor tried it as well and he got choked into submission last Saturday at UFC 196.
Floyd Mayweather spoke with fight hype and he touched on a couple topics such as: Media twisting his words, not having beef with any MMA fighters, and promoting MMA fights in the future.
“I never once said anything negative about Ronda Rousey. Never! I never once said anything negative about Ronda Rousey. I never once said anything disrespectful about, I want to make sure I call his name right, Conor McGregor? Okay. I never said anything negative about them,” stated retired undefeated former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, who shared his thoughts on MMA fighters, like UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor and former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, constantly bringing up his name. According to Mayweather, the fact that they do call him out seems ridiculous considering that he never has and never will compete in the sport of mixed martial arts. Furthermore, he thinks the media is instigating animosity between the two sports by taking his quotes and twisting them out of context.
