Ronda Rousey: Mayweather fight wouldn't happen unless we were dating

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey takes a swipe at Floyd Mayweather for his long history of domestic violence.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, the Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight champion took a jab at the American boxer’s history of domestic violence when asked about the possibility of a Mayweather-Rousey fight.

“I’ll never say that I can’t beat anyone. I don’t think me and him would ever fight unless we ended up dating,” Rousey said.

In a previous interview, Rousey admitted that Mayweather would beat him inside the boxing ring, but added that boxing is a “limited form of fighting.”

“Of course Floyd would box the hell out of me if we were in a boxing match, she said. “I’ve trained my whole life to train for things he hasn’t prepared for. When he fought [Marcos] Maidana he got kneed to the head and taken down. It’s just not something that he’s been trained to look out for.”

Rousey has publicly supported Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao in the latter’s megabuck bout with Mayweather, even visiting Pacquiao at his home in California less than three weeks prior to the “Fight of the Century.”

Rousey also reportedly received the only free ticket in the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as promised by promoter Bob Arum.
