As shocking as this seems, Floyd Mayweather is actually defending Ronda Rousey. Mayweather says he doesn’t “think it’s cool” that people ripped into her after her loss to Holly Holm. This is a surprising turn of events considering the amount of smack talk that has taken place between the two over the past year.
According to Mayweather, he has not spoken to anyone regarding the Rousey situation and never asked 50 Cent to post the Ronda Rousey meme. In fact, Mayweather spoke to FightHype.com and here is what he had to say about the situation:
“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.”
