If Ronda Rousey VS Floyd Mayweather Jr. were to happen then UFC commentator Joe Rogan says the UFC women’s division champion would definitely be the winner.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Ronda Rousey is considering a WWE WrestleMania 31 match, and when she met CM Punk for the first time she fangasmed all over him.
The question of whether a Rousey vs Mayweather fight would result in a win for the UFC fighter mostly assumes they’d meet during a MMA match instead of a boxing ring. An informal poll by the Los Angeles times showed that readers agreed with Rogan’s claim, although the question did not specify the type of fight. As of now, 54.48 percent of voters claimed Rousey would win.
But why would Rousey win? Rogan says Mayweather would become confused by the MMA style of fighting:
“It’s all about how much time Floyd has to prepare, because he will really have to work on his takedown defense. That would be the big thing. If Ronda got a clinch on him, it’s not just about worrying about being taken down to the ground, it’s worrying about knees to the body. It is worrying about her manipulating his body in ways that he doesn’t understand.”
According to Rogan, Floyd Mayweather Jr. would need at least six months of training in order to stand a chance. But even then it’ll be tough:
“It’s too hard to avoid the clinch. If you watch a Floyd Mayweather fight, they very rarely end in a one-punch knockout. He has brittle hands. His hands break. You are talking about small gloves where hands are going to break even easier. She keeps her chin tucked, hands high and gets a hold of you. There is going to be a lot of things she is doing that he doesn’t understand.”
Of course, the only reason anyone is talking Ronda Rousey VS Floyd Mayweather Jr. at all is because she suggested the idea herself. She even explained how she’d take down the boxer:
“I wouldn’t even stand up, I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him. I would just do like a little army crawl over there, and he would have to run away. I would just be skittering after him like the one dude in Bloodsport that was doing the whole monkey crawl fight system. I would do that. I would just bear crawl over there too low for him to hit me, and I’d tackle him down…. I spent a lot of time [on the ground], and I doubt that he does.”
Of course, not everyone agrees that Rousey is so hot (fighting wise, that is). Matt Brown is dismissive of the UFC women’s division in general and he even claimed the only way to make her more marketable would be to feature Ronda Rousey nude for a match:
“I just think this, if I’m [going] to pay $60 for a pay-per-view to watch women fight they should at least be topless…. How many knockouts do you see in women’s fights? It’s not really my thing. I respect what they do, but look, they don’t have the body type or the power, all that sh*t, for knockouts.”
Who do you think would win in a UFC fight; Ronda Rousey or Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Do you think she’d stand a chance in the boxing ring?
