I'd pick Ronda via first round armbar. Floyd would get to throw one punch the entire fight. Ronda finding one single clinch would mean the end. Floyd isn't a knockout artist, and Ronda is a tank.
UFC champion Ronda Rousey was recently a guest on the Power 106 FM radio station (video below) and shed some light on the main difference between MMA and boxing. When asked by the show's host if she'd be able to beat boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an MMA-rules fight inside the UFC Octagon, Rousey was self-deprecating but honest in assessing that she'd likely be able to take out "Money" if she kept the fight on the ground.
"I’ll tell you what I’d do," Rousey began.
"You ready? I would drop down to the ground and crawl over to him as fast I as I can and then I’d grab him by … I wouldn't even stand up. I wouldn’t be anywhere near him. I would just do a little army crawl over there [laughs]. He’d have to run away and I’d be skittering after him, like the one dude in 'Bloodsport' who was doing the whole monkey-crawl fight system. I would do that. I would just bear crawl over there, just too low for him to hit me and tackle him down."
The show's host then asked Ronda if what she was saying was that, once she were to get the fight with Mayweather to the ground, that would be it.
"Well, I spend a lot of time there. I doubt that he does," Rousey explained humbly.
For the record, I'm against men fighting women. I do, however, find it fascinating that the best boxer in the world could get beat up by a girl. Discuss...
