UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has taken another swipe at undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather. In the recent development of both fighters’ war of words series, Rousey claimed that she makes more money than Mayweather per second.

Rousey, who came off a swift victory against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 earlier this month, has been involved in a fight of words with Mayweather, and “Rowdy” is not yet ready to make a truce with boxing’s pound-for-pound king. During an interview with a TMZ reporter, the 28-year-old Rousey was asked about the things she have been doing recently, but the conversation quickly turned to another jab at Mayweather.

"[Floyd] said 'You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call' ... and I actually did the math and given the numbers of my last fight, I'm actually the highest paid UFC fighter and I'm a woman,” Rousey said, reports TMZ. "I think I actually make 2-3 times more than he does per second ... so when he learns to read and write, he can text me."

Yahoo Sports did the privilege of computing the earnings of Mayweather and Rousey in their previous outings, to determine who really has the highest figures. Given the numbers from Mayweather’s earnings in his fight against Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, and Rousey’s earnings in her last match against Correia, the report suggested that the female champ indeed makes more money per second than “Money.”

UFC vice president of public relations and athlete marketing Dave Sholler also confirmed that Rousey “is the highest compensated current UFC champion. However, Sholler admitted he was not able to disclose Rousey’s exact purse.

The exchange of words between two of the most elite fighters in the world started when Mayweather addressed Rousey as a “he” during an interview last year. Rousey then responded earlier this year by bringing up Mayweather’s domestic violence incidents, before taking another shot at the boxing champ during the 2015 ESPY Award, where she beat “Pretty Boy” for the Best Fighter of the Year Award. Mayweather tried to keep things cool earlier this month after blasting Rousey in terms of pay-per-view earnings.
