ESPY Awards: Ronda Rousey Beats Floyd Mayweather To Win Best Fighter

Female UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey bagged the Best Fighter award at the annual ESPY Awards held on Wednesday, surging past the likes of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, and boxers Gennady Golovkin and Terrance Crawford, and, not to forget, Floyd Mayweather.

In an interview with ESPN, Rousey said, “I wonder how [Mayweather] feels being beat by a woman for once.”

“I’d like to see him pretend to not know who I am now,” she said, referring to an interview in which Mayweather said he didn’t know who Rousey was.

Rousey also received the Best Female Athlete ESPY, going past Serena Williams, skier Lindsey Vonn and three-time NCAA champion Breanna Stewart.

According to Yahoo Sports, Rousey remains undefeated in her pro MMA career. While she had won the Best Female Athlete award last year, she lost the Best Fighter award to Mayweather.
