Floyd Mayweather Defends Ronda Rousey Over Online Trolling

Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey

After 50 Cent mocked Ronda Rousey on social media and blamed it on Floyd Mayweather, the boxing superstar comes forward... calling it a lie.

In an interview with FightHype.com, Mayweather denied speaking to anyone about Ronda's recent fight.

"That's not true at all. I haven't really spoke to anyone about the Ronda Rousey situation, just to set the record straight. I don't have anything against MMA fighters. It's just like boxing; you win some, you lose some. A true champion can take a loss and bounce back," Mayweather says.

When asked about the criticism Ronda has received online following her loss to Holly Holm over the weekend, Mayweather said it wasn't cool.

"I don't think it's cool how everyone is trolling her on social media," he said. "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," Mayweather continued. "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."
