Rousey has previously taken thinly veiled digs at his history of domestic abuse.

Mayweather has faced seven counts of domestic abuse against five women, and in 2012 he served three months in a Nevada detention centre after he was found to have repeatedly punched former partner Josie Harris.

Rousey beat Mayweather to the 'Fighter of the Year' nod at the ESPY's last night and took a swipe at the undefeated American.

"I can't help but really say that I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once," she said

"I'd like to see you pretend not to know who I am now."
