    Larry Merchant Sorta Called The Rousey Over-Hype


    Larry Merchant would have looked even smarter if I typed faster...
    I spoke to the ex HBO analyst a couple days before Ronda Rousey was set to extend her invincibility streak.
    "Rousey challenging Mayweather or any good prizefighter, that's just UFC hype," said Merchant, while we chatted about Rousey being on the cover of RING.
    "White, the guy who runs the company, he probably can't stand it that one boxing event generated as much as he probably did in a year. And then Haymon got over $400 million to keep spreading the word..."
    Yeah, Larry, not such an MMA guy...

    Money May has offered Rousey to come to The Money Team so "The Besr Ever" can teach her how to box.

    OMFG! Dude does anything to stay at the top of the news. He will be back in dat squared jungle in 2016. And I would not be surprised if he is still scrapping in 2020. Holla!

    Funny, after all of their back and forth he hits her with a back handed compliment..

    Can't blame him for that and it was a good response from Floyd, to take the high road in a way but yet be condescending.

    The truth though is that RR is a great MMA fighter, a great Judo fighter, fantastic with the armbar BUT can NOT box for ****, like most mma fighters.

    HH put on a boxing clinic and what a beautiful left hand, stout, fast, precise, perfect range, footwork, angles, counters, defense, I bet Floyd was honestly proud of HH, I know I was/am.
