UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (pictured) has just beaten Floyd Mayweather for “Fighter of The Year” at the 2015 ESPN ESPY Awards. She then beat Mayweather down verbally after accepting the trophy.

“I can’t help but really say that, I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” Rousey said. “I’d like to see you pretend to not know who I am now.”

And boom goes the dynamite!

Rousey, of course, is referring to Mayweather’s bountiful domestic violence arrests that boxing continues to sweep under the rug. In 2011, the boxer even severed 60 days of a 90-day sentence in a correctional facility after attacking his then-girlfriend in front of their children.

Mayweather said earlier this year that he had no idea who “he” was when reporters asked if Rousey could beat him in a fight.

Rousey is up for two more ESPYs, “Best Female Athlete” and “Best Play.”

If Rousey doesn’t take home another trophy tonight, she will own two ESPYs. “Rowdy” became the first MMA Fighter to score an ESPY by taking “Best Female Athlete” at last year’s ceremony.

Rousey is set to defend her throne against Bethe Correia August 1 at UFC 190.
