Ronda Rousey Claims She Makes More Money Per Second Than Floyd Mayweather, Takes a Shot at His Reading Skills

Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather are never going to get into the ring/Octagon together, regardless of how much people seem to want it to happen. But their war of words is probably going to keep us entertained for years to come.

If you haven’t been keeping up with it, here’s a quick update: Mayweather addressed Rousey as a “he” during an interview last year. Rousey responded by bringing up Mayweather’s various domestic violence incidents earlier this year. She then doubled down on that by taking another shot at Mayweather during the 2015 ESPY Awards. And Mayweather responded by playing the “I’m richer than you” card in response to it before trying to bury the hatchet with Rousey earlier this month.

Rousey isn’t quite ready to call a truce yet, though, and TMZ Sports has the proof. She spoke with a paparazzo about how things have been going with her recently and, during her interview, she took aim at Mayweather by claiming that she makes more money per second than he does—and saying that Mayweather can text her to talk about it once he learns how to read.

“[Floyd] said, ‘You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call,'” she said. “I actually did the math and, given the numbers of my last fight, I’m actually the highest-paid UFC fighter, and I’m a woman. I think I actually make two to three times more than he does per second…so when he learns to read and write, he can text me.”

Ouch. You can watch Rousey’s entire interview here. How long until Mayweather responds? He’s got a fight to promote, so you can probably expect something anyyyyyyy second now…

They do know how to promote don’t they? But what are they promoting?
