Floyd Mayweather: Ronda Rousey? Who Is He? Dana White Responds

Back in May at the UFC 173 Media Day in Las Vegas, UFC President Dana White was asked about who would win in a fight between UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather.

“You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly. You do an MMA fight, same result. Boxing match, Floyd Mayweather chews her up.”

Since that bold claim, many fight fans have entertained the idea, wondering what would happen in this hypothetical matchup. During a media interview this week, Mayweather was questioned about potential future opponents, with Rousey’s name coming up. Mayweather responded,

“I don’t know who he is.”

While Mayweather’s reaction may seem disrespectful to Rousey, it didn’t surprise Dana White, who said:

“What’s Floyd going to say? That’s a lose-lose situation for Floyd. For him to even acknowledge that he knows who Ronda is, and that she could possibly beat him in a fight, ya know, that’s what I’d expect him to say.”

    Both sides can talk as much trash as they want because this fight will obviously never happen

    • Coach

      You’re right, but not because Mayweather is above hitting a woman. It wouldn’t happen because she is in her prime, and Floyd “punk ass bitch” Mayweather won’t fight anyone that’s in the prime of their prime.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Outside of ducking top tier opponents, the one thing Floyd is good at is beating women so I’d pick him in that fight.

    • WarPigsLukesWall

      I’m not sure whether to find that funny or not, lol

      • Coach

        Its pathetic, just like Floyd “punk ass bitch” Mayweather is pathetic.

    • IKeepsit100

      Damn these jokes are corny.

      • Bushwald Sexyface

        Who said it was a joke?

    • Coach

      I’m not so sure he would fight her. When was the last time he fought anyone in their prime? I would love to see her fight him & expose him for the cowardly bitch that he is.

      • brad

        I still think Manny would whoop dat monkey a$$.

        • Coach

          Bah, he’d be scared to fight her. Hr can act as cocky as he wants, but he doesn’t have heart. Did Muhammad Ali ever duck anyone? No. The only thing he ever ducked was military service and considering the social injustices of the time, I won’t cast judgment on him for that because he took a stand for something much larger.

        • ……

          Yeah that’s not racist at all.

      • I’ve Lost My Smile

        You sir are an idiot. When was the last time he fought someone in his prime how about September 2013 Saul Alvarez who is 24 or you don’t want to remember that because it doesn’t suit your agenda. Or how about Robert Guerro May 2013 who was 30, how about Miguel Cotto 2012 who was 31 or Victor Ortiz 2001 who was 24 at the time?

        This is why blind hatred is stupid you can’t see the forest for all the trees.

        • Coach

          You’re the idiot dumbass! None of those guys were capable of beating him.

          • I’ve Lost My Smile

            No one is jackass lol keep trying.

    • Butttermytoastt

      U mad hater lmao

  • Jomo

    Ronda Rousey would annihilate Floyd in an MMA fight . Make that black tap

    • IKeepsit100

      No…really? An MMA fight? NOOOOOOOOO WAAAAAAAAAAY…

    • You Cena Lover

      She need to make you tap you Cena lovin B****!

  • astronautbutter

    This is like saying Tiger Woods can beat Michael Jordan at golf. Two very different sports.

    • Sam Sosa-Rodriguez

      Michael Jordan is actually a pretty active golfer, so…

      • astronautbutter

        Right, which is why I made the comparison. He was a star in another sport and plays golf, but he’s no Tiger Woods. It’s just an unfair comparison, because an elite athlete who’s trained their adult life for something will usually win over the one who hasn’t, regardless of sport/gender/age/etc. Of course Mayweather would lose, but there’s no shame in it.

    • Coach

      Have you saw any fights between boxers & mm a fighters. If its a mma fight, the boxer usually gets destroyed because they’re not used to using or defending against legs, submission holds & ground and pound.

  • NextWorldChamp

    I don’t know about Mayweather but Chris Brown would beat her ass

    • I’ve Lost My Smile

      dammit don’t make me laugh at stuff like this

    • Floyd Gayweather

      I would pay to see Chris Brown whoop on her ass.

      • Coach

        Love the name. You hit the nail on the head with that one.

  • I’ve Lost My Smile

    What the hell is wrong with Dana for even entertaining this why would he want to see a man fight a woman why doesn’t he just shut this crap down asap?

    • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

      Dana White knows the fight will never take place, as do Mayweather and Rousey. It’s all trash talk to get some press

      • I’ve Lost My Smile

        It’s just frustrating he wants MMA to be the worlds largest sport yet he keeps bringing up this bullcrap it doesn’t help the UFC in anyway. It can only end up bad, he has had a hard on for Mayweather every since he wanted him to face Sean Sherk that never happened either.

        • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

          I feel your frustration, but he’s a promoter. Part of being a promoter is generating media attention, and his comments did just that. He got a response from Mayweather and now we’re talking about UFC, Rousey & Mayweather. Mayweather is more famous than Rousey and there’s a good chance that some people discovered who Rousey is from this situation. Mission accomplished.

          • I’ve Lost My Smile

            I understand that I just disagree it’s bad business all around and if anything it doesn’t make Floyd appear at any UFC shows because why would he want that circus of him fighting Rhonda?

          • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

            I’m not saying it’s a great strategy, but it gets people talking, people start speculating, “Could Ronda Rousey beat Floyd Mayweather??” More free media attention for Rousey & UFC

          • I’ve Lost My Smile

            Floyd appeared at Wrestlemania XXIV they had 1,058,000 Buys making one of the top 5 or 6 most profitable events for them. Instead of bringing Mayweather in and doing some type of cross promotion or have him appear on on Ultimate Fighter to give tips to guys on throwing a proper punch, (Freddie Roach has been on the UF) they instead antagonize him with the prospects of fighting a woman?

            That is why I whole heartily disagree with it. Lets say Muhammad Ali was in his prime right now and UFC was around, would the UFC mock him or try to bring the greatest in to help by aligning themselves with a guy that can put asses in seats? I find it funny that WWE has done business with Ali, Tyson, Holyfield, Buster Douglas and Mayweather. You can even throw in freaking Butterbean, but the UFC insists on rejecting boxing but they instead talk up BJJ amateur wrestling muay thai, when non of that can do anything to help gain new viewers. Love or Hate him Mayweather has been consistently been drawing large crowds and selling PPVs at a rate that no one can compare to anymore.

    • raven

      ..what would dana’s hero Vince McMahon do?

      • I’ve Lost My Smile

        Book Rousey in a promo where he has her barking as a dog?

        • raven

          hahahaaaa ha! only if she is in her bra n thong tho.
          this sounds like a really good idea to me.

  • http://www.youtube.com/ac1dchr15t ac1d

    I am not for man on woman violence, but I’d love to see a woman kick a guys ass, especially Floyd’s ass any day.

  • marc

    How is it a diss he does not know her, I hate to tell the ufc fan boys but most the people I know have no idea who she is

    • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

      I think it’s HIGHLY unlikely that Mayweather doesn’t know who Ronda Rousey is

      • I’ve Lost My Smile

        I think it’s very likely he didn’t know who she was in the context of the questions they threw at him asking if he would fight random guy 1 then immediately say would you fight random person 2 he would likely say who is that guy? Because the average man wouldn’t expect someone to ask them to fight a damn woman.

        • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

          You make a good point, I just don’t buy it though. Rousey is pretty mainstream, is probably familiar with UFC, you don’t think he heard about Dana White saying Rousey could kick his ass?

          • I’ve Lost My Smile

            Or he could have though he said Ron DaRousey and thought it was some up and coming scrub they were asking him about.

    • Coach

      “Punk ass bitch” Mayweather is an ignorant dumbass moron, but I’m sure he’s heard of Rhonda Rousey.

  • Jay Strongbow

    This doesn’t belong on Sescoops, nor is it legitimate news.

  • raven

    if Floyd doesn’t know who you are-you are doing it right.
    Really tho..boxing is long dead. One style of fighting in general is dead, if you aren’t well rounded in multiple fighting styles-nobody cares about you.

    • I’ve Lost My Smile

      Where do you boxing is dead guys even come from? Boxing is still in gyms around the country, is still an olympic sport (when they want to get rid of wrestling) oh and by the way it is still on TV that includes cable and two premium networks as well as PPVs. How is that even close to dead?

      • raven

        The art of boxing is alive and well (more due ot the mma explosion than anything else)-pro boxing as an entertainment company is dead.
        This guy is the biggest name in boxing… that should be more than enough proof.

      • Coach

        Its dead because you have punk bitches like Mayweather who won’t fight anyone that could remotely come close to beating them. That isn’t an example that really attracts fans. Not all boxers are cowardly bitches like Mayweather, but when you celebrate anyone that runs from competition like Mayweather, it hurts the sport. How can you describe Mayweather as anything other than a cowardly punk ass bitch when he beats women, and runs from quality fighters?

        • I’ve Lost My Smile

          it’s dead because of one man who just happens to be he highest paid athlete in all sports who happened to fight a fight with a guy many thought could beat him in Alvarez that just so happened to be the most profitable sports event of all time a mere 10 months ago and boxing is dead? GTFO here with that bull. 2.2 Million PPV buys and it’s dying? Those numbers are like 7 – 10 UFC PPV buys in one freaking night dude so STFU.

  • 1MikeAshby1

    It is all hipe and Dana White knows that Floyd would kick her ass, and also that the fight would never happen. Ronda Rousey is the top of the heap in a weak women’s developing sport. She is the female equivalent of Royce Gracie, someone who was good for their time, but soon the sport caught up and passed them by. Ronda is a one trick pony and Dana White is cracking the whip. Why? Because it makes money…lol

  • Coach

    I can’t stand that punk ass bitch. His cowardly ass wouldn’t fight her, & it has nothing to do with her being. Hell he’s never had a problem smacking women up in the past. Hell he went to jail for it. I hope he got his “manhood” taken in jail. I can’t believe people still respect this coward considering how much he ducks any fighter that isn’t a push over. It won’t happen, but it would be nice to see Floyd grow some nuts and fight Manny Pacquaio, but we all know that’s not going to happen. This shitty ass human being, & others like him are the reason that boxing is nearly dead. When was the last time he fought anyone that stood a chance of beating him? Greatness isn’t achieved by default, and his undefeated record against garbage fighters and against great fighters that have long since been over their prime isn’t impressing anyone.

    • Doomsday77

      oh shut your punk ass up, frail pussy 90s baby. you have never been in a fight in your 90s baby life. silly little bitch hahaa 1,2,3…fuckit, HE’S OUT!

      • joshidanger

        You sir, are a tool.

  • Floyd Gayweather

    Floyd is a genius. His record will soon be 50-0 and he will be the Greatest of All Time, the best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be!

    • joshidanger

      Ali ring a bell. Marciano maybe. The man will be best known for being the best mainstream of all time, or will just buy that distinction with all of his cash that he needs to pay the other fighters to lose for him.

  • Floyd Gayweather

    Floyd will make Ronda suck and like his big black dick!

  • carlitowranjr

    I didn’t know who she was either before her name started popping up next to Floyds.

  • doug

    come back reality Dana, too much irish beer…

  • doug

    a good fighter can beat her, not a very good, just a man, a good fighter, Dana White know nothing about fight

  • doug

    ufc is a circus, every guys in ufc are on roids and girls too, come on ! one man punch and Rousey is game over for 12 months, Dana is making the show, a pathetic show nothing else, certainly Rousey can beat Dana White so he thinks she can beat ale the guys…LOL !

  • doug

    Dana shit is not good for mma !

  • doug

    Dana and Rousey are a joke, MayW won 46 fights !!!

  • doug

    the bitch is going to suck bbc !

  • doug

    Rousey sucked too much small white dick…

  • Jeremy

    Floyd has an over inflated ego. The guy will say anything to get attention. He knows that in a real fight he would lose to her and basically says that. I dont like the guy and hate to agree with him but in a straight up boxing match ofcourse he would win. The guy has a serious little man complex.

  • joshidanger

    Awe sounds to me like Money has Little woMan syndrome. Rousey would whoop his ass.

  • Butttermytoastt

    Y’all just mad u can’t have Floyd lifestyles u broke bums crying behind a CPU
