UFC Quick Quote: Ronda Rousey would hurt Floyd Mayweather 'badly' in a street fight

But in a boxing match, "Money" would "chew her up."

Jeff Bottari

"You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly. Do you think Floyd Mayweather has ever had his feet kicked out from under him? 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. When she grabs on to you, she's not your average woman. Are you shitting me? She's mean. She'll kick the living shit out of me, and you, and everyone else standing here, like it or not. I was on an ESPN radio show at the Clippers game. The Max Kellerman show, we're on the street and guys were [disbelieving], I was like, ‘she'll clean this fucking street out, all of you, every one of you out there. You can't wrap your brain around that."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White (via MMA Fighting) is confident that women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey would destroy undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. if and when they ever threw down in the back alleys of Las Vegas. In fact, White is pretty sure "Rowdy" would beat his ass, too, and mine, and yours, and everyone who happened to be on the streets of Los Angeles earlier this month. She can "absolutely" beat some UFC men at 135 pounds, too! Fortunately, her violence is confined to the cage, but based on White's scouting report, I fear for the safety of Alexis Davis, who challenges for "Rowdy's" strap at the UFC 175 pay-per-view (PPV) event over Fourth of July Weekend (details). Anyone disagree?
