Floyd Mayweather Comes To Rescue Ronda Rousey After Her Loss At UFC 207
Ronda Rousey, the Olympic bronze medallist faced a very devastating loss in the first round itself to Amanda Nunes in the main event of UFC 207 last month. After her loss, she has been facing criticism all over the world. Ronda has been criticised after being knocked out under a minute but the boxing champion Mayweather has offered to help her out if she wants.
As reported in Scottinshun, Mayweather gave a statement to TMZ in which he said, "I'll work with her if she's willing to work with me."
Rousey was fighting her first since her UFC 193 match which she lost to Holly Holm. This time she lost in 48 seconds. After this match, many fans and many greats have asked 29 years old Ronda to quit fighting. But Mayweather urged her and said "true champion", to ignore her critics and get back to MMA despite her shattering loss.
UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping on Ronda "I don't know if I could give her advice, but in my opinion, she's done it all." "She took over the sport. She was the face of the sport. She earned a lot of money. She's a massive celebrity now. She's been the champion. She's defended it a number of times. Walk away. But if you wanted to come back and fight again, get a win, I'd probably understand that as well. Only she can decide that. But either way, whether she fights or retires, I'd understand both to be honest" as reported in Daily Star.
Ronda hasn't spoken on her next move yet. UFC President Dana White said to 'The Herd', "Ronda and I haven't talked." "We text, yesterday was the first day that we started texting and even if it's a regular fight, the fight that's going to happen this Sunday, I don't mess with the fighters for a while. I let them have some time off. Ronda and I will talk soon and see what she wants to do."
Ronda has been a Champion but her future is in doubt. What would be her decision on Mayweather's call would also be interesting to see.
