VIDEO: Rousey takes a pop at Mayweather over domestic violence

UFC star Ronda Rousey used a recent TV interview to have a dig at boxing champion Floyd Mayweather’s history of violence towards women.

Welterweight champion Mayweather, who defeated Manny Pacquiao in a title fight in May, has a history of domestic violence stretching back to to 2002.

In 2012 he served two months in jail for battery of his former girlfriend Josie Harris.

Rousey, who is the biggest female star in UFC, was being interviewed about a cameo appearance she makes in the upcoming Entourage film.

The interviewer jokingly asked about a possible fight between Rousey and boxer Mayweather.

“Mayweather’s undefeated, you’re undefeated,” the interviewer laughed. “Could you take him down?”

Rousey’s response: “I don’t think that me and him would ever fight, unless we ended up dating”.

Well played, Ronda, well played.
