UFC president Dana White made some waves earlier this year when he claimed star Ronda Rousey could take down heretofore undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather. Said the outspoken White: "Ronda wouldn't beat him. She'd hurt him badly."
On Tuesday, the question was posed to Mayweather. Here's the answer, via BoxingScene.com:
To be fair, it doesn't appear Mayweather is trying to be condescending. He legitimately doesn't seem to know have heard of Rousey. Is that better? We're not sure.
Rousey, meanwhile, had this to say on the subject of fighting men in her ESPN/ESPYS Facebook chat Monday:
"I think that anyone is capable of beating anyone on any given day and that's why I work harder than all of my challengers. That said, I don't think there's a single person on this earth I can't beat."
What do you think?
