Last month, Ronda Rousey innocently responded to a question about how she would approach a fight with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. He response was joking mostly, but it sparked a ton of debate and response from fans and fellow fighters.

"I didn't start the whole 'Ronda Rousey would beat Floyd Mayweather' thing, that didn't start with me," White said. I just agreed with it and supported it 100 percent. You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly. You do an MMA fight, seem result. Boxing match? Mayweather chews her up."
