An unexpected supporter has come to the defense of MMA fighter Ronda Rousey.

Floyd Mayweather talked to Fight Hype about Rousey and her recent loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

He started by saying that he definitely didn't tell 50 Cent to mock Rousey on Instagram with a meme, and he has nothing against MMA fighters.

"That's not true at all. I haven't really spoke to anyone about the Ronda Rousey situation, just to set the record straight. I don't have anything against MMA fighters. It's just like boxing; you win some, you lose some. A true champion can take a loss and bounce back."

He's not a fan of Internet bullying and trolling after Rousey's knockout loss.

"I don't think it's cool how everyone is trolling her on social media. Certain things you have to learn. People will love you on Friday and then Sunday morning, it's nothing but negative comments and people making jokes and people making fun about you, which I don't think is cool. I've never been on the other side, so I don't know how it feels. I'm pretty sure she's a very, very strong person, but we still have to take into consideration that she has feelings."

His rush to defend Rousey is unexpected, especially given their shaky past.

Maybe this is a new Mayweather?

Hoax of The Day: No, There Definitely Isn't a Tinder For Street Fighting

In the age of the Internet and viral news stories, people will believe anything.

With a crazy idea that makes you think "Hmmm...that could actually be believable," you can convince the public of just about whatever you want.

This brings us to Rumblr, a soon-to-be mobile app dubbed the "Tinder of street fighting." The app, which supposedly allows users to match with other people in their area who want to fist fight, was featured on over 200 blogs and websites this week.

Too bad it was just a big, fat lie.

Turns out, this was just a stupid marketing stunt to launch a creative agency. Not even a cool marketing stunt.

"Rumblr started as a portfolio project to help us launch our creative consulting agency, von Hughes. We're a team of college dropouts with backgrounds in marketing, design, and engineering. Rumblr came about organically as a funny idea amongst a group of friends, but quickly budded into an opportunity to showcase our branding skills."

We are all fools.

A California man ended his night with sore eyes and in handcuffs after his Uber driver fought back against an alleged assault.

Uber driver Edward Caban was able to grab his pepper spray and defend himself against 32-year-old Benjamin Golden, the passenger Caban said was too drunk and belligerent to give proper directions.

He captured the entire encounter on his dashboard camera.

"He was grabbing my head and was trying to smash it against the window," Caban told NBC4.

"I wanted to make sure he didn't get away," Caban said. "I have lost so much money on people like him and I'm done dealing with it. They take the food right out of my mouth."

Golden was arrested on public intoxication and assault charges, Costa Mesa police said.

Caban ended his YouTube description with this very true statement: "Uber drivers don't get paid enough to deal with this sh*t."

I mean, we all love Nutella, but damn.

An altercation erupted over some Nutella waffles in a Burbank Costco Sept. 22. But it wasn't a fair fight at all.

The LA Times describes how an elderly man got punched for trying to teach moderation.

Derrick Gharabighi, 24, was at the warehouse store in Burbank on Sunday when he walked over to the Nutella sample station. As the elderly shopper reached out to grab one, Gharabighi snatched all the Nutella samples, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

That's when Gharabighi reportedly punched the man in the face. The man was hospitalized with a one-inch cut and swelling above his left eye, Guillen said.

Gharabighi, a Burbank resident, was arrested and is being held on $50,000 bail, police said.

He faces one count of elder abuse, as well as the special allegation that he inflicted great bodily harm on the elderly man, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. If Gharabighi is convicted, he faces up to 11 years in state prison.

A $50,000 bail and the possibility of 11 years sounds steep for getting really hangry, but it still was a complete d*ck move.

Settle down, Nutella lovers.

Well, you can check Singapore off your travel list and replace it with a big "NOPE."

Students near Singapore's Nanyang Technological University were shocked to see something only a Syfy original movie cold even dream up—a python and king cobra battling it out.

The fight went on for about 15 to 20 minutes until the cobra finally wriggled out of the grasp of the python and slithered into the bushes, The Straits Times reported.

Luckily, both animals were captured. The cobra was relocated to a nearby zoo and the python was released into the wild.

Check out some of the amazing photos captured during the encounter, courtesy of the university's graduate student council.

Ronda Rousey, the defending UFC Bantamweight Champion, did an AMA on Reddit Aug. 10.

There, the all-around cool person, opened up about fighting, her unabashed nerdiness and life stuff.

Hallelujah, there is peace on Earth.

Surely you know about the immense brouhaha that stole the Internet's breath July 22 when Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and a bunch of ancillary celebrities (we're looking at you, Chrissy Teigen) had a good ol' fashioned Twitter spat.

Well, the clouds have parted.

Taylor Swizzle, in a pretty classy move, apologized for the whole mess.

Then, Nicki Minaj, in an equally classy move, accepted the apology.

They didn't even need Aaron Paul to mediate the fight for them.

Finally we can focus on something more worthwhile, like the Trump/Graham fight.
