Ronda Rousey KOs Floyd Mayweather In The Most Brilliant Way

Floyd Mayweather once said he doesn’t know who Ronda Rousey is. Aafter this year’s ESPY Awards, he’ll surely remember her for the rest of his life.

UFC champion Ronda Rousey was named the Best Fighter ESPY Wednesday on the 2015 ESPY Awards red carpet, beating out Floyd Mayweather – despite his historic victory over Manny Pacquiao in May.

While accepting her award, the beaming winner took a moment to take a jab at Mayweather, who once said he did know who Ronda Rousey was.  

“I can’t help but really say that I wonder how Floyd [Mayweather] feels being beat by a woman for once,” Rousey said. “I’d like to see you pretend to not know who I am now.”

Apart from Mayweather, female UFC bantamweight champion Rousey beat other male contemporaries including Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and boxers Gennady Golovkin and Terrance Crawford.

It’s not the first time Rousey took a shot at Mayweather over his long history of domestic violence – which includes six charges and two months in prison.

In May, when Rousey was presented with the question if she thinks she can beat Mayweather in the ring, she replied: “Well, I would never say that I can't beat anyone, but I don’t think me and him would ever fight, unless we ended up dating."
