Floyd Mayweather Defends Ronda Rousey, Denies Tellig 50 Cent To Post Meme

floyd mayweather defends Ronda Rousey

Remember that Ronda Rousey meme 50 Cent posted on Instagram showing a post-knockout Rousey photoshopped into the Apollo Creed death scene from Rocky IV? Remember how 50 said posting it was Floyd Mayweather‘s idea?

Well, Floyd Mayweather says 50 Cent is a liar. “That’s not true at all,” Money told Fight Hype. “I haven’t really spoke to anyone about the Ronda Rousey situation, just to set the record straight.”

But of course, Floyd did take the opportunity to rub the loss in Rousey’s face, right? You know, given their history of trading insults back and forth in the media?

Amazingly, no. In the interview with Fight Hype, Floyd Mayweather actually defends Rousey against all the trolls taking pot shots and posting memes. And it’s not nearly as passive aggressive as you’d expect. (Though yes, it’s a little passive aggressive.)

Take a look:

“I don’t think it’s cool how everyone is trolling her on social media. Certain things you have to learn. People will love you on Friday and then Sunday morning, it’s nothing but negative comments and people making jokes and people making fun about you, which I don’t think is cool. I’ve never been on the other side, so I don’t know how it feels. I’m pretty sure she’s a very, very strong person, but we still have to take into consideration that she has feelings. Everything happens for a reason. This was already written. Listen, if God says, ‘In Floyd’s career, I don’t want him to lose,’ you know what? I wasn’t going to lose. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t took a loss before. I’m not talking about boxing; I’m just talking about life. When you lose a loved one, that’s taking a loss. I think that everything is just a learning experience. In due time, she’ll be able to bounce back and make some noise again in mixed martial arts.”

Dammit, Floyd, stop being the bigger man. The narrative is so much easier when you’re a d-bag.
