Encouragement for Rousey!

Ronda Rousey is getting a few words of encouragement, after getting knocked out, from her least likely supporter, Floyd Mayweather. He seemed unusually diplomatic in an interview about the title fight between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm, at Sunday’s Pistons-Lakers game. Mayweather opted not to kick Rousey when she was down; because frankly Holly Holm, the new Women’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Bantamweight champion, already did that.

Mayweather defended the previously undefeated MMA fighter by saying he “[didn’t] think it's cool how everyone is trolling her on social media.” The boxer spoke about how he didn’t like the comments people were saying about Rousey.

“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.”

Floyd Mayweather, who announced his retirement after his last fight, seemed to offer Rousey some divine advice in his interview. Everything happens for a reason. This was already written," said Mayweather. "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.” The ever-gracious Mayweather even offered to give Rousey some boxing lessons saying, "If you need help as far as with boxing, I'm here to help you.”

Mayweather and Rousey have exchanged verbal blows in the past. Their feud began in 2014 when Mayweather claimed no to know who Rousey was and referred to the female fighter as “he”. She responded by saying that she made more money than Mayweather, and mocked the boxer’s low reading skills. As usual Mayweather responded to her comments by telling the world how much money he makes. Their verbal match continued when Rousey won the Espy for Fighter of the Year, and alluded to Mayweather’s issues with domestic violence.

Although Mayweather is avoiding beating up on Rousey on social media, other stars are not so kind. Rousey’s MMA rivals Cyborg Justino and Miesha Tate mocked the disgraced prizefighter. Rapper 50 Cent, who seems to really enjoy social media wars, posted a meme taunting Rousey. No one knows why the usually cocky Mayweather took a more gracious route to dealing with Rousey this time, but it probably has something to do with the fact that now only one of them can say they have never lost a fight on social media, or in the ring.
