Mayweather on Ronda Rousey: I Don’t Know Who 'He' Is

by David P. Greisman

UFC head honcho Dana White is big on Ronda Rousey, the mixed martial arts company’s women’s bantamweight champion. Recently he touched on the topic of how Rousey would do in a battle with the best boxer today, Floyd Mayweather.

“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,” White said in a video from MMA Junkie/USA Today. “You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly. You don an MMA fight, same result. Boxing match? Floyd Mayweather chews her up.

“It’s hard for guys to wrap their brains around that one. Ronda wouldn’t beat him. She’d hurt him badly. She would hurt him badly,” he said. Later, he added: “You think Floyd Mayweather has ever had his feet kicked out from under him. She walks around at 160, 165. At 165 pounds, all her weight coming down on top of him, on the street, on here [a dais], on the carpet, I don’t give a fuck where it is. She’s going to hurt him badly. I’ve seen her throw big dudes and hurt him. … It’s no disrespect to Floyd. It is what it is. Ronda would whoop a lot of dude’s asses, not just Floyd’s.”

Mayweather spoke with a small group of media members on July 14, and when asked about another boxer as a potential opponent, he replied that “Everyone is trying to hit the lotto and fight Floyd Mayweather.”

Another reporter saw an opening and decided to ask Mayweather: “What about Ronda Rousey?”

“I don’t even know who he is,” Mayweather responded.

people underestimating how strong floyd mayweather is. ronda shoots the legs I guarantee mayweather is strong enough to pick her up and drop her on her head.

Humorous response. I hope he does know who she is, that makes the response even better.
