Ronda Rousey To Mayweather: “I Make More Than You Per Second”
The war of words between UFC women's champ Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather continue.
In early August, the boxing superstar bragged about how much he makes, when questioned about the bad blood between himself and Rousey. "I've yet to see any MMA fighter, or other boxer, make over $300 million in 36 minutes. When she can do that, then, call me," Floyd said.
Well, Rousey has a rebuttal. She tells TMZ she actually makes more than Floyd.
"[Floyd] said, 'You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call' ... and 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," she said. "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," Rousey said.
When pressed by TMZ about whether she makes more than Mayweather, she responded, "Yeah, I'm just more efficient."
According to ESPN.com, Mayweather made about $102,000 per second for his May 3 fight against Manny Pacquiao, the biggest bout in boxing history. He fought 2,160 seconds and made at least $220 million.
If Rousey earned $102,000 per second for her 34-second fight against Bethe Correia, she would have had to have made $3.47 million. Earning two to three times more per second than Mayweather would mean she would have made between $6.9 million and $10.4 million for her August 3 title fight.
