When Ronda Rousey stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, she wasn’t looking for a fight — but she did discuss some old fighting words.

Fallon asked the undefeated UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion about her recent comments on boxer Floyd Mayweather.

“I said… something to the effect that now he knows how it feels to have a woman beat him for once,” Rousey recalled. Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in jail in 2011 for battery domestic violence and harassment against an ex-girlfriend.

According to Rousey, Mayweather has not reached out to respond to her comments, and maintains that he doesn’t know the UFC champ exists.

“If I ever run into him, every time that I run into him I’m going to reintroduce myself,” she said “Maybe one day he’ll actually remember me.”

Fallon and Rousey also discussed her recent fight against Bethe Correia in Brazil, which was over in 34 seconds.

“I took my time,” Rousey joked. And so her campaign to play Captain Marvel rolls on.
