Floyd Mayweather has taken a pot shot at Ronda Rousey in the wake of her devastating loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193, although it came via the Instagram account of his close friend, rapper 50 Cent.
Rousey and Mayweather have been involved in a bitter war of words since 2014, triggered by the latter responding: “I don’t even know who he is” when asked about the UFC star, per Liam FitzGibbon of FOX Sports.
There have been various exchanges back and forth since, with plenty waiting for Mayweather’s verdict since Rousey was knocked out in Melbourne.
Mayweather’s first barb came via his rapper pal, who posted the following Rocky-inspired post on social media recently:
Plenty have had their laughs at Rousey, thought by many to be unbeatable inside the Octagon, in the wake of one of the sport’s biggest upsets.
Lailla Ali, a former retired, unbeaten boxer and the daughter of the legendary Muhammad Ali, was also critical of Rousey.
“In order to be the best in the world, you definitely don’t ever get beat up like that in your prime, period,” she told TMZ Sports.
As reported by Martin Domin of the MailOnline, the 28-year-old spent the night in hospital after losing her UFC bantamweight championship to Holm.
According to the piece, UFC President Dana White has claimed a rematch between Rousey and Holm would make sense further down the line, although the former champion is set to take a break from the sport.
Mayweather will most likely have his say directly in the future.
The retired boxer, who was unbeaten during his 49-fight career, has previously put the boot in on rivals, most notably unashamedly mocking Manny Pacquiao with videos of his knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012, per the Mirror.
