White: Rousey would 'hurt Mayweather bad' in a street fight


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. Today, UFC President Dana White was again asked to expand on the ludicrous fight scenario:

"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."

Simply, White believes Mayweather, having never had to contend with judo or any sort of grappling, wouldn't have an answer for the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist, regardless of gender.

"Do you think Floyd Mayweather has ever had his feet kicked out from under him?" White asked. "She walks around at 160, 165. At 165 pounds, all her weight coming down on him, on the street, on here, on the concrete, I don't care where it is, she's going to hurt him badly. I've seen her throw big dudes and hurt ‘em."

LO FUCKING L. If Floyd, who is light years faster than Ronda, lasted more than 2 minutes, that's two minutes time he could land a lightning fast lead right cross to Ronda's chin. A lead right cross top pro MALE BOXERS are unable to avoid. And in case it wasn't obvious, you need to close more distance for a Judo throw than to throw a right lead. If Floyd can survive just by being passive and patient, he will land that potshot right lead before Ronda ever gets close. And lol at some random 6'2" 260 lb police officer / karate dilettante beating Floyd. Karate guy is going to sleep, keep fantasizing that "well rounded" club karate skills would beat the p4p best boxer in the world. Based on your previous description of your size difference with the cop, you are probably 160 lbs or so. Obviously, that 260 cop wasn't much good if he got rag dolled by a 160 karate/judo dilettante. But since you think that cop would kick Floyd's ass, you must think you could kick Floyd's ass too. Let's hear it for the club level karateka/judoka that could beat Floyd Mayweather in a "real fight." Hahahaha

Like I told you, Milo was being inactive the whole fight. Doing nothing but throwing jabs every now and then. If Ronda Rousey's opponents did the same thing. They would survive rounds too. I don't get your point with this?Also how much money someone make doesn't equate to how well they fight. Boxing is a sport your can make tons of money. Karate is not unless you go into MMA.The guy was a police officer... that's his occupation. I'm pretty sure at 6'2 and 250-260lbs. There's not much Floyd Mayweather could do against him. And he probably has more ability to knock people out over Floyd. Apparently... Floyd couldn't even knock out T.I. Who is like 5'8.

Your right. We have clear weight and gender classes in fight sports for very sound reasoning. But even in the crazy old days of early UFC/Pride open weight contests, the prospect of seeing a one punch knockout vs elite grapplers, became nothing more than fantasy in the ever evolving understanding of what we now know as MMA.I mean look, I can be aware of Quantum mechanics, but this doesn't make me any more likely to be any good at it. And the same thing goes for one of the most dominating aspect of the martial arts too, where it takes decades to master the same things people feel Mayweather will somehow learn in weeks or months; just because he's man lol.Yes, I know people don't enjoy watching most western forms of grappling, loath the alien concept of Judo, and hate the increasing prominence of Rousey's name too. But standing 5ft 7, only using ring based boxing, with no knowledge of kicks, elbows, and basic takedown defence, it's funny to hear guys get so angry about the slightest notion of Mayweather losing to a unique female grappler, within a highly specialised skill based physical contest like MMA lol.Mayweather isn't a monster striker like Mike Tyson, Peter Aerts, or a similar to Ronda in size Buakaw Por Pramuk. His size and Boxing alone, aren't enough to one punch destroy Rousey. So she grabs him, and what do you suspect happens next? His manliness overwhelms her, and she forgets how to attack his god like physical presence lol.

so, you assume that Mayweather simply has no concept of grappling, as though he's ignorant to everything but boxing?again, if this was a debate of a men's competitor, i would have a different view, but people are simply ignoring very basic science.there are reason why we have gender divisions and weight divisions in sports...

Mayewather's not Superman lol. He's a great boxer, but we all know boxing on it's own isn't enough trump elite level grappling in MMA; don't we?Compared to the men she's grown up training with, I'd be pretty sure if Rousey grabs Floyd, he's going down at will, and from that point on, it's surely safe to say the fights only going to end one way, and that's in favour of Rousey, by any number of options.How many fights have you ever seen in MMA where no clinching was initiated by either fighter? Even somebody as badass as Anderson Silva had to contend with the frustrating battle of the clinch game, and he's a high level Muay Thai fighter, who had the benefit of lethal kicks and elbows in his arsenal.

they're not saying she can just take him down; they're saying that she will destroy him, and are ignoring the ample statistical and scientific data that shows how unlikely this is: http://www.fightmagazine.com/mma-magazine/reach-out-and-touch-someone-1398/http://www.uml.edu/campusrecreation/staff/EP%20II%20Materials/Gender.pdfand remember, Dana's the same guy who's made some pretty wild claims about his own athletic ability as well....

Train for a year? Who said that she could beat Floyd with a year of training ?He said NOW with no training. Floyd is a pussy in a and out of the ring. If his past performances are an indication, he'd fucking run from Ronda like the little tiny bitch that he is .
