Barbs between Rousey and Mayweather continue
- Updated: August 28, 2015
The verbal battle between UFC star Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather continues, as both fighters take shots at each other through the media.
“Big bank take little bank. Let’s play and see how much money you got. Last time I checked I was #1 on Forbes. She will never be at my status. Keep trying to get publicity,” Mayweather told TMZ Sports.
A strong comeback from the No. 1 fighter in the world, as the above quote was in response to UFC star Ronda Rousey’s statement this week about making more than Mayweather per second in her fights.
“[Floyd] said ‘You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call.’ … 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,” Rousey said previously.
Overall, it’s been amusing reading about the back and forth between the two fighters, who are at the top of each of their respective sports.
It has to be asked, however, do either of them really need the extra money or publicity?
