• WATCH UFC Champ Ronda Rousey Smack Down Reporter Asking About Gender Pay Gap

    What does high-level ultimate fighting have to do with emotion-based liberal economics? The answer is absolutely nothing.

    But that didn’t stop some dimwitted reporter from asking UFC fighting champion Ronda Rousey what her thoughts are about the disparity in pay between male and female fighters.

    Using the meat-million dollar prize fight between Mayweather v. Pacquiao, the “reporter” argued how unfair it is for two male boxers to be able to make hundreds of millions of dollars on one fight while Rousey made a mere million on her championship bout.

    How can we change that?” the interviewer asked Rousey, who laughed off the line of questioning.

    “I don’t like to talk about how much money I make,” Rousey said. “If I got to the point that I had almost 50 fights I would probably be making close to the same amount of money that Floyd Mayweather does. But at this point, I have eleven.”

    “So I can’t expect it to be equal yet,” Rousey concluded.

    There Rousey answered an emotional question with a logical answer. She knows that she hasn’t obtained the same market earning potential that Floyd Mayweather has. And that has nothing to do with the fact the she has a vigina and he has a penis. It just takes time for her brand to grow to the level that demands hundred dollar prize fights. And because no female fighter is at that level yet, sexism must be to blame according to mindless people like this reporter.

    Watch Ronda Rousey dish out some common economic sense to this agenda-driven reporter.
