Rousey Takes “ESPY,” And Hard Shot At Mayweather

Finally, someone other than Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao has won a “Best Fighter” ESPY.

Californian mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey broke the stranglehold on the award, won by Floyd in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and Manny in 2009 and 2011. The UFC’s top arm-breaker, the mischievous limb-mangler Rousey, was this years’ recipient. She beat out Mayweather, and leveled a witty and pointed overhand right at him as she exulted with the trophy. Gennady Golovkin, Terence Crawford, and fellow MMAer Donald Cerrone also trailed the UFC’s top attraction, truly a transcendent figure.

The bantamweight champ sports an 11-0 record and a rep as the most unbeatable fighter in all fight sports, which says something being that her boss, UFC’s Dana White, swore up and down four years ago that women would never fight in his Octagon.

On the red carpet, the 28-year-old said, “I wonder how Floyd feels being beaten by a woman for once,” referring to his record for assaulting his ex. “I’d like to see him pretend to not know who I am now,” she said, glaring a hole through the camera trained her as she was interviewed, having snagged the award before the show, on ABC, kicked off. (And she also snagged Best Female Athlete award, beating out Serena Williams in the fan-poll voting, which is so good, so her dominant arm won’t get muscle-bound, holding the single trophy.)

Rousey has balls, you could say, but that wouldn’t be right, being that testicles are notoriously chinny. She has chutzpah, in a big way, and you simply have to admire her mile-wide pride streak. Bravo, Ronda, well done, and well handled.

Good for her, and funny as well. There is never a reason not to throw a woman beater under the bus.


-Domenic :

I'm a Golovkin guy through and through, but have no problem with this. GGG man, all business in the ring.


-Art :

Good for you Rhonda! Love that warrior spirit! Pity I can't say the same for that idiot you mentioned Floyd somebody!!!! No women beater should even have the opportunity to be nominated!!!


-Radam G :

Getting top of the line legit awards will not be easy for Lil' Floyd after the MayPac farce. The corrupted NSAC did Money May no favors by letting him take xylocaine, allergy medicine and rehydration TUE syet and refusing to let Da Manny take pain shots and vitamin water. Holla!


-Bernie Campbell :

This aspiring actress has no place in a boxing blog! I think a picture of her would be more appropriate in an apron and curlers serving cookies with slippers on. Please dont waste my time giving publicity to me with this imitation! We boxing fans are not interested!!!

hahaha


-Ramrod Jab :

Well done and fairplay to her, and what she said about Mayweather made me laugh


-stormcentre :

Just someone else - this time a woman - trying to get attention and make money of Floyd's name. Same same. :)


-Radam G :

She has bad vibes for Lil Floyd. I'm surprised that he has not had some of his ratchet thotties to call Rousey out. Or even to sneak attack jump her. I guess Lil Floyd is getting mellow with age. And dropping that gangster-wannabe persona. Good for him. Holla!


-stormcentre :

Actually, the more I think of it the less I think Rousey even belongs in a boxing article. That's just my opinion. I get tired of these MMA types (regardless of gender) calling Floyd's name (because he is in/famous) and telling us they could beat him in 30 seconds or whatever the time they think it takes. Of course some (not all), at the top level, and trained in MMA may beat an experienced boxer that is not trained in wrestling, kicking, and judo. However, if Rousey really wants to make a statement and be the patron saint for domestic abuse, let her glove up in a boxing ring (Floyd does not profess to be better than any specific MMA fighter), box, and do a few rounds with Floyd; then conduct an interview and tell us how well it all went. Don't hold your breath on that as I think Rousey wants an unfair advantage. :)


-Bernie Campbell :

Get this garbage outta my face! Get these type of articles off the blog! You idiots make a mockery of the sweet science! Ask her what her recipe for stew is, ask her what color of Chrysamthums are! You guys wanna write about her...get a gig at Good Housekeeping! If you ask me, get the Vaudeville Hook! Thanx but no Thanks! Out1

Settle down, B-Camp! Don't act like a vagabond tramp. Holla!

Hey Radam, playing the voice of reason again I see, listen, Why dont you choose up a game of Co-Ed Vollyball and go to the Beach! We Boxing Fans are not interested in Female buggery! Do you hear that sponsors and promoters! Out! Get Out!

B-Camp, since you are hating on Rousey, tell me how do you feel about the half-of-woman Bruce Jenner? Now known as Caylin. She/he won an Espy award for God Knows why! Just politically-correct politics IMHO. I don't get it. Just because a former athlete go half woman, half man, she/he gets an Espy Award. Holla!

espn giving such an award displays the worst our culture has to offer. political bs to give a man who loses his mind at 65 years old an award for courage for being a heshe hey as a human you have the freedom to do to thyself as you will, but gimme a freaking break cheering this crap on. the heshe is suppose to be a parent, father, he has failed his children and receives an award for it. disturbing

Hehehe! Wow! I'm still trying to figure out where is the athletic courage. What sport's event has Caylin/Bruce shown courage in? Will somebody help me if they know? I'm not being disrespectful -- to me, each his own freaky syet. I'm just trying to get how Bruce was athletically courageous. And so much that he got an award for courage. Holla!

Okay, B-Camp! Since you like to bring it. And come hard with it. Holla at this video --
->https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=575&v=O7d12DzuBOU -- where Montero agrees with you. But just as you did, he punked-bytches out about Bruce "Caylin" Jenner. What's up with that? Have you guys lost your cojones? Caylin still has his/her's. Hehehe! Holla!


-Bernie Campbell :

Listen Radam, I dont know anything about punkin bitches out! I dont know who the heck Montero is! I think you may be on some sort of substance! I dont think hardcore boxing fans should be deluged with the female presence of combat participants of that persuasion. Simple and plain! I know there may be alot of revenue generated with calanders and swimsuits, but I resent it! I think the only place a female has in boxing is when you take your best girl to the Arena on a Saturday Night and watch a Championship epic with her! Too much politicking, too much agenda! Get the females out of announcing too, they dont know what the blazes their talking about! Entertainment? Hardly! As for He-She's, I dont know what to say about that! Im not an advocate! I worked as a Social Worker for 25 years! I was also in a capacity to minister to AIDES patients! Transexuals-or Transgenders are a sad lot! Its not all glorious that people would like to play it up to be! I was at the bedside of two transgenders that died! I stood watch! Do you think its a pretty sight to meet your maker on the choices you may have made in your life? I will never forget that suffering! Otherwise screw Rossey and lets talk about why DeAntay Wilder doesnt have the crust to get into a competitive fight at this juncture of his career!

Hehehehe! You are a one-man comical riot. Funny as heck. I dig the way that you slip and slide, hide and ride, Bob and weave, and keep it hot, and take your shot. With all that said, I can respect that you were a social worker that cared for all. Regardless of their choice. Holla!


-kidcanvas :

shes a warrior 4 sure, great entertainer in the octagon ... Congrats Ronda.


-Shoulder Roll Defense :

Floyd continues to laugh all the way to the bank. Deep down Rousey probably wishes she could be a part of the "money team" and get to intimately know Floyd. She wasn't supremely confident when asked on ESPN a few months back if she would ever fight Laila Ali. I recommend Rousey reach out to Floyd, he will probably take her out on a date to a private island or something.
