UFC president Dana White is convinced that women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey would only beat boxing champion Floyd Mayweather in a street fight, but she would hurt him in the process.  White explained it in detail following the UFC 173 Media Day on Thursday in Las Vegas.

    This douche really needs some medication for his delusions.

      His delusions are the result of his “medications”.

    Thats ridiculous lol. Its not that guys cant accept Ronda being stronger and better rounded than them, but to say Floyd Mayweather would get seriously hurt? Dafuq are you on Dana? Stop eating out Ronda and talk some logic. Hes talking big about Ronda and gives Floyd like 0 positive remarks other that he’d win in a boxing match. Floyd would k.o Ronda, unless she shoots for takedowns. And even then, she’ll take a hell of a ton of punches before she gets it.

      Spoken like someone who doesn’t take any martial arts. Judo is a brutal sport and martial art, if you’ve never been thrown to the ground then you have no idea what you’re talking about. All it takes is the wrong step and you’ll be eating concrete. Not to mention that Ronda is taller, and bigger than Mayweather. Go watch Toney James vs. Couture again if you need to see the difference between a boxer and an mma fighter.

      • Hmmmmm

        James Toney was a boxer waaaaaaaay past his prime, he had made his boxing debut in 1988 – and started in the amateur ranks in 1984… He fought Randy in 2010…

        Also, his athletic ability was zero because of himself being a small middleweight who “blew up” to heavyweight and never lost the excess fat. The reason he was successful during his prime was his boxing skill set – which faded as he grew older as his reaction time slowed. Floyd now is coming to the end of his career but is a completely different beast than Toney… Floyd still trains at an insane level and is in tip-top shape. Also, his reactions haven’t slowed as much compared to the decline of Toney.

        Ronda is a great fighter, but to think that Floyd has no chance due to someones ability to score a takedown is a bit over the top.

        KJ Noons managed to perform well enough in a cage, and he was never an elite boxer. I doubt Floyd would fair worse than KJ, and with Mayweathers insane reflexes, he might be capable of learning decent sprawl and brawl TD defense.

    This is the most pointless talked about event in the history of sports ever. Does anyone still care? This BS thread needs to go away. Are we really still talking about how a man who is the best p4p boxer on the planet is supposed to fight a woman who maintains her record beating up cans with the exception of tate and whoever her last opponent was(no one really cares cause it wmma)?

  • dani

    If she got a hold of you and judo slammed you onto the concrete, your out.

  • Obi-Wan Granoli

    that’s a bit nuts white. seriously? there’s a chance yes…there’s also a chance that the most insane boxer ever will punch her head clean off.

    I am positive it would be the most entertaining Mayweather fight in the last 5 years.

    - Rousey VS Mayweather
    – Vitor’s drug test from last year
    – Hypothetical Brock Lesnar matchups

    what are 3 things only MMA bloggers give half a crap about?

    • Joe Dog

      Exactly. Plus P4P lists and discussions.

  • Tomas

    I think Floyd could flip her and DIK her before she could throw him and blow him.

  • Joe Dog

    Fedor vs The Undertaker. St Louis Cardinals vs San Diego Chargers in a hockey match. Lately, I’ve been wondering what it would be like if we were experiencing global cooling.

  • Shartnado2, the Sloppy One

    Uh no, not only is he a man, he’s an athlete and she’s not, he would ko her in one minute

  • thatswhatshesaid

    i hate them both but it would be hard for lousy to get fakeweather in an arm bar while hes punching in that disgusting face.. non the less if i saw them street fighting, it wouldnt bother me to see them hit by a car..

  • jrcr_15

    If they were both drowning, and you had the chance to save one of them, what kind of sandwich would you make?

  • brad king

    lol

  • dandogood

    uriah faber would hurt little tiny floyd.
