Glover Teixeira def. Ovince Saint Preux via submission (rear-naked choke) – Round 3, 3:10
While on the surface to many fans, this appears like WSOF “doing the right thing”, it is really just the culmination of what WSOF set in motion the moment they rewarded him for his past behavior by granting him a title fight in his very first fight with the promotion, just months after being cut from the UFC for cranking the submission on Mike Pierce.
The reality is, they always knew this was coming and they’ve been ready for it all along. They’ve never been in the Rousimar Palhares business for anything other than what his controversy brings.
The manufactured feud between Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey continues.
On Thursday night, Mayweather, the most popular boxer in the world, took a verbal swipe at Rousey on ESPN's SportsCenter. This follows Rousey's putdown of Mayweather at the ESPYS last month.
"I've yet to see any MMA fighter, or other boxer, make over $300 million in 36 minutes," Mayweather said. "When she can do that, then call me."
Mayweather wasn't all snarky, though.
"A while back I didn't know who Ronda Rousey was, so I'm pretty sure she got upset. I want to say congratulations to Ronda Rousey and the UFC. You guys have done a tremendous job and I've won probably six or seven ESPYS for Fighter of the Year. And I truly believe she deserves it. Congratulations to Ronda Rousey."
At the ESPYS in July, Rousey brought up Mayweather's past history of domestic violence after defeating him in the Fighter of the Year category.
"I wonder how Floyd feels being beaten by a woman for once," Rousey said.
Rousey said she waited a whole year before slamming Mayweather, because she felt like he disrespected her in 2014 by saying he didn't know who she was.
"I know for damn sure that he knew who I was, because he was running against me for Best Fighter that year and he has signed MMA fighters," Rousey said in July at a Los Angeles media day. "So his feigned ignorance was meant to be a snarky remark to me."

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira did have that talk with Dana White. You know, the same one the UFC president had with Chuck Liddell and Matt Hughes when their careers became unbearable to watch with their will to keep fighting even though their bodies could hardly take any more punishment.
The last drop for Nogueira was his unanimous decision loss to Stefan Struve this past Saturday, at UFC 190. Although Big Nog may have spoken to Dana White, who offered him a scout position which he's accepted, that does not mean he is through fighting just yet.
"He showed interest in me working with the UFC in finding new talents, which is something I already do, some kind of scout," Nogueira told Portal do Vale Tudo. "I accepted, but I will keep training and I haven't said if I will retire or not. The fight ended recently, I will still think about what I will do next. I like to train and I love the atmosphere of a camp. When people ask me what I like to do the most, I tell them it's training, to perfect an armbar or whatever, I like to wake up and have a goal."
