In a new video, Mayweather advised Rousey that “a true champion can bounce back” from the 48-second KO delivered to her by Nunes in UFC 207.
“Ronda Rousey, hold your head up. You’re still a true champion in our eyes. You made women’s MMA huge, so stay focused, go back to the drawing board and do what you gotta do.”
He commented on domestic violence allegations against him, and said that there are no photos of the alleged abuse but that he’s not a perfect person, either. Mayweather had jokes in the video, claiming that God only made one thing perfect: his boxing record.
The controversial boxer made another controversial move this week, announcing that he would happily be attending President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
“The only thing we can do is keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best,” Mayweather said in reference to Trump’s upcoming time in office.
Rousey hasn’t been without her share of controversy since her loss to Nunes. The 29-year-old MMA star’s house was vandalized earlier this week, which is especially sad considering Rousey posted on Instagram that she hit “rock bottom” the same day the culprits tagged her home with black spray paint.
