The war of words between Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey rages on as Floyd snipes back at a few choice words from the female MMA star. Earlier this week Rousey responded to Floyd's last public comments saying "call me" when she's making as much as he is. In her own quip, Ronda stated that she did some calculating and figures that she actually earns more money per second than Floyd does. She finished it off by saying, "When he learns to read and write, he can text me."

I can't say if that was sore spot for Floyd or not, but it didn't take him very long to fire back by saying:

"Big bank take little bank. Let's play and see how much money you got."

"Last time I checked I was #1 on Forbes. She will never be at my status. Keep trying to get publicity."

Nothing against Rousey, but with Forbes estimating Floyd tallying $420M this year...well, yeah, you get the picture.

This whole little thing between the two is pretty pointless. They'll never fight each other, nor should they, and even if in some imaginary world it did happen, it would still be a lose-lose situation for Floyd. Maybe Floyd should just cool off and blow his hair back in his sweet, new, $4.8M, one of two in exisitence, sports car.

See that, Floyd? Ridiculously expensive luxury items make everything better. I wouldn't know myself, but I've been told...
