Remember when UFC color man Joe Rogan said he believed women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey could beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an MMA fight? Yes? No? Let’s refresh your memory.
Of course things like these blow up on the internets rather quickly. Even UFC President Dana White (who claims to no longer surf the web these days) agreed with Rogan. Here’s what Rousey would say a few months back on Power 106 radio out of L.A.:
“I would drop down to the ground and crawl over to him as fast as I can and then I’d grab him by the legs,” Rousey said. “I wouldn’t even stand up. I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him.”
So, what did Mayweather have to say about Rousey’s chances against him when asked by USA Today’s Bob Velin earlier today? Simply put, he doesn’t even “know who he is.”
