Ric Flair: My daughter is 'strong beyond belief' and not afraid of Ronda Rousey

I'm afraid of both of them.

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has sent its fair share of superstars to WWE.

That includes UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, who made a guest appearance at WrestleMania in order to help her Furious 7 co-star, "The Rock," layeth the smacketh down on some candy asses. The pro wrestling company, for better or worse, has often returned the favor.

And now that "The Nature Boy" has been able to size up the "Rowdy" judoka (watch them rub elbows here), he's convinced his daughter Charlotte would present a formidable challenge. Not just inside the squared circle, but inside the Octagon, as well.

Flair elaborates to

"Let's do it, man, that's what I want to see. Charlotte's not afraid to get in there. In all fairness, if she had a year to train, I'm not saying Ashley would win by any means, but if she had a year to get ready for it, it wouldn't end in round one. I'll predict that. It wouldn't be a 14-second tap out. Ashley would need to learn submission wrestling but Ashley is strong beyond belief. Today, think about it right, she could do 30 front-handed pull-ups and 100 push-ups. She can run at level nine for an hour on a treadmill and she weighs 155 pounds with three-percent body fat."

Here's a sneak peek:

That showdown is more likely to happen in WWE, since Charlotte is still mixing it up with her fellow rookies in NXT, the promotion's developmental league, and has yet to make a name for herself on the main roster. And as one top wrestler quickly discovered, why get hit with real punches when you can get hit with fake ones for more money?
