A hypothetical fight between Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been much discussed in the media and amongst fans lately. Any fight between the two in any form is pipe dream meant to spark discussion, but in actuality UFC President Dana White and Rousey herself would be completely opposed to it:
"You would never report me saying something like 'I think that Floyd Mayweather is the best boxer that ever lived, an actual, technical boxer‘ Rousey said during the UFC 175 press conference at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. "Of course Floyd would box the hell out of me if it was a boxing match. But boxing is a limited form of fighting, and we're a much less limited form of fighting and I've trained my whole life to prepare for things he hasn't prepared for. I prepare to get hit and to be taken down."
Friday, UFC president Dana White went through the same spiel he gave Thursday as to why Rousey would defeat Mayweather anywhere except the boxing ring, earning Rousey's scorn for saying she walks around at 160 pounds ("148," she corrected him).
But ultimately, White made clear that such a fight is never happening.
"We don't condone men vs. women fighting," White said.
Rousey, who defends her title at UFC 175 against Alexis Davis, concurred.
"I think in professional fighting, it would be a terrible idea."
