Holly Holm fighting Ronda Rousey
It was a humbling match for Rousey in two ways. Firstly, she refused to touch gloves with Holm as a sign of respect. Secondly, Rousey publicly bragged on different occasions that she would badly beat undefeated male welterweight champ, Floyd Mayweather, in a match. Rousey kept trash talking Mayweather, who simply stated "I don't know who he is!" (yes, Mayweather called Rousey "he"). However, I stated over a year ago on Twitter that Rousey would not beat Mayweather in a match. The mere fact Holm beat her supports my claim.
Holly Holm was in the octagon fighting like she's from Compton (LOL). I'm not gonna talk smack about her, because I don't want any of that (LOL).
Thus far, Mayweather has taken the high road regarding Rousey's defeat when many people (including me) have been goading him into saying something facetious (people, I've got a blog to write LOL). Mayweather's sanitized response was, "Just in boxing period, contact sports period, you win some, you lose some. I don't know about this fight, I just know that you win some and you lose some. It basically comes with the territory."
How is Floyd gonna diss Ali and Usain Bolt, then play nice with Rousey. You guys know full well Mayweather paid Holm to beat the ponytail off Rousey (I'm kidding). On another note, Mayweather took exception to Rousey being on the cover of The Ring boxing magazine, as she is a mixed martial arts athlete and he feels it made the publication "look bad."

Floyd Mayweather on Ronda Rousey loss: 'It basically comes with the territory'
On November 16, 2015 at 6:15 AM, updated November 16, 2015 at 8:51 AM - LOS ANGELES -- Last year, boxer Floyd Mayweather made waves when he was asked about mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey and replied, "I don't know who he is." Hours after Rousey was knocked out and lost her bantamweight title to Holly Holm, Mayweather wasn't much more inclined to discuss the star of UFC. "Oh, I don't know," Mayweather said when asked about Rousey's loss in Australia. "I don't speak on nobody's situation."...
"Just in boxing period, contact sports period, you win some, you lose some," Mayweather said Sunday at Staples Center, where he watched a Los Angeles Lakers-Detroit Pistons NBA game. "I don't know about this fight, I just know that you win some and you lose some. It basically comes with the territory."
Mayweather did note Rousey's loss came as she was featured on the January 2016 issue of The Ring, the venerable boxing magazine on whose cover he so often appeared before announcing his retirement with a 49-0 record after his Sept. 12 win over Andre Berto. The Grand Rapids native said it makes boxing "look bad" to have a mixed martial artist on the cover...
