Rousey-Mayweather Feud: Ronda Says She Makes More Money Per Second than Floyd…Then Calls Him Illiterate (Video)
The folks over at TMZ spotted UFC superstar Ronda Rousey walking her dog on the streets of Los Angeles on Tuesday, so obviously they approached her and asked the question everybody wants to know the answer to.
Oh I’m sorry, did you think I meant they asked her if she is dating alleged wife beater Travis Browne? Because no, they didn’t ask her that. Instead, they asked Rousey what she thought about the disparity between what male and female MMA fighters get paid, obviously setting her up for yet another easy Floyd Mayweather burn.
In case you’re late to the party, Mayweather and Rousey have of course been feuding on and off for the last year. Mayweather said he didn’t know who Rousey was, then Rousey won the ESPY for “Fighter of the Year” and burned Mayweather with a reference to his domestic violence conviction, then Mayweather responded by pointing out how much money he makes.
So you see, when TMZ brought up the issue of money, they knew Ronda was going to go there. And she did.
“[Floyd] said ‘When you make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call.'” Ronda says. “And 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. And I think I actually make 2-3 times more than he does per second. So when he learns to read and write, he can text me.”
You can check out the interview for yourself over at TMZ. It feels really staged, but who cares. A Mayweather burn is a Mayweather burn.
