Floyd Mayweather Fight Ronda Rousey? “Money” Doesn’t Even Know Who “He” Is

Floyd Mayweather is one of the greatest boxers the sport has ever known. Indeed, with a professional record of 46 – 0 and numerous world titles to his name, “Pretty Boy” could very well be the greatest boxer of all time.

However, in the world of MMA, Mayweather pulls little respect for how his boxing might fare against an MMA fighter.

To the point, UFC President Dana White has openly mused about his belief that women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey would beat Mayweather in a fight.

Specifically, White told MMA Junkie that, although he didn’t start the Rousey vs. Mayweather talk, he agreed with the conclusion that Rousey would beat the boxer in a fight.

His words:

“I didn’t start the whole ‘Ronda Rousey could beat Floyd Mayweather’ thing. That didn’t start with me. I just supported it and agreed 100 percent. You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly. You do an MMA fight, same result. Boxing match? Floyd Mayweather chews her up.”

Yesterday, the question was put Mayweather at a press scrum, as to what he thought about White’s comments regarding “Rowdy” beating him.

In answer, the undefeated champion simply shrugged his shoulders and said, “I don’t even know who he is.”

When told that the fighter in question was a woman, Mayweather again shrugged his shoulders and repeated his comment, “I don’t know who that is.”

In terms of Mayweather not knowing who Rousey is, it’s a little difficult to fathom. Yes, Mayweather is a busy guy and doesn’t appear to follow MMA, but given the fact that he lives in Las Vegas and Rousey is a huge “Sin City” star, it would be reasonable to assume that “Pretty Boy” is aware of who Rousey is.

Perhaps Mayweather really doesn’t know who “Rowdy” is, but it might be a safer bet that the boxing legend was simply having some fun with the media and doing his best not to feed into Rousey’s or the UFC’s hype.

In considering the subject and the fact that he can’t do anything about it, because Rousey is a woman and in a different sport, Mayweather’s answer regarding Rousey was a good one and possibly the best response he could have given.

    Floyd will drill her down in under 16 seconds.

    Then be arrested on account of beating up a girl.

    If you've ever trained or watched mma it's pretty obvious the someone at her caliber would absolutely beat Floyd. He would have a punchers chance of course but the second she got a hold of him it would be done

    Only a fool would fight Ronda. If he loses he is ridiculed. If he wins he is ridiculed. The only way it is going to happen is if an over the hill fighter who doesn't care what anybody thinks is trying to keep his name alive. There's nobody like that in MMA!

    This whole debate is ignorant and wishful thinking to say Rhonda would win….First Floyd is much bigger and his hands are pretty accurate and he hits a lot harder than people may think. KO's in boxing are rare because of the gloves. He's bigger, stronger and pretty likely to connect and make it to his feet even if taken down just based on strength difference. The entire debate is worthless and a waste of time but to say Rhonda who was rocked and tagged by Meisha Tate would beat Floyd is ridiculous.

    So does that mean that Tate can be competitive vs Floyd in a fight? Cat too? How about the whole womens division? How about any woman that does martial arts? Geez People forget this guy is a fighter too, yea I agree boxing is less effective in a fight than probably BJJ, Judo, etc….But he is still a bigger, stronger athlete with a high skill level none the less.
