UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey isn’t known for mincing words.
Thus, it wasn’t surprising when the face of female MMA broke down her path to victory in a hypothetical matchup against boxing’s pound-for-pound king, Floyd Mayweather, during an interview with Big Boy on Power 106 FM.
No need to cringe, Rousey’s breakdown was quite rational.
“I’ll tell you what I’d do [against Mayweather]. You ready? I would drop down to the ground and crawl over to him as fast I as I can and then I’d grab him by the…I would even stand up, I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him. I would just do like a little army crawl over there, and he’d have to run away and I’d be skittering after him, like the one dude in Bloodsport that was doing the whole like monkey crawl fighting system. I would do that. I would just bear crawl over there, just too low for him to hit me and I’ll tackle him down.”
Ronda is confident Floyd would be in over his head once things hit the canvas.
“Well I spend a lot of time there,” Ronda added. “I doubt that he does.”
Told you Rousey’s response was actually quite rational.
On any given day, a MMA fighter shouldn’t have any problems dismantling a professional boxer inside a cage, but there are physical differences (power and strength for example) between males and females that might tilt the odds in Mayweather’s favor.
What do you think? Are Rousey’s mixed martial arts skills enough to overcome the fact Mayweather will enjoy certain physical advantages?
