Cyborg: Ronda Rousey is using Mayweather to get publicity

Cyborg says Rousey only talks bad about Floyd Mayweather because she wants to use him to become more popular. According to Cris, it's same thing Ronda did with her back when she was still new to MMA.

Cris Cyborg was training at the Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Academy, where the Invicta FC champion spoke to interviewers from the Mayweather Boxing Channel. Unsurprisingly, this is where she addressed the tiring topic of a possible inter-gender bout between Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather.

"I think she speaks too much, and doesn't think before she speaks. Sometimes when she speaks, it don't make sense," Cyborg said. "She says 'I can beat Mayweather' but if she fought Mayweather, she cannot touch him."

As for the reason for Rousey bringing up Floyd and continuing the silly narrative, Cyborg says she is just doing that to get more publicity.

"She likes to talk. Before she talked bad about me when people don't know her. Now, she's using Mayweather for the same thing," she explained. "It's her style. She likes to do this, but it's not my style."

As for Floyd Mayweather himself, he also seems to be completely tired about being asked about the question that the UFC and mainstream media outlets have been pushing. Watch the clip below.
