Would Ronda Rousey Fight Floyd Mayweather? Only If 'We Ended Up Dating,' MMA Champ Jabs

Ronda Rousey pulls no punches when she's in the ring, or when she's chatting about "Fight of the Century" champ and convicted abuser Floyd Mayweather.

The undefeated mixed martial artist sat down with Access Hollywood's Stephanie Bauer to chat about her upcoming role in the new "Entourage" movie. Bauer asked if the MMA star would ever be up to challenge the also-undefeated Mayweather in the ring and if she'd be able to "take him down."

"Well, I would never say that I can't beat anyone, but I don’t think me and him would ever fight," Rousey replied. "Unless we ended up dating."


Despite earning more than $200 million fighting Manny Pacquiao earlier this month, Mayweather has an equally storied legacy of harming women. The fighter has been accused of beating five women in at least seven assaults, and been found guilty in four of those charges.

Rousey, 28, has quite the crowd in her corner. Mike Tyson told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill earlier this year that she "might kick [Mayweather's] ass" in the MMA ring, and Manny Pacquiao said she was strong enough to take Mayweather.
