Ronda Rousey, the reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion, has revealed how she would defeat boxing’s pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather.
The 27-year-old, who is widely regarded as the No. 1 pound-for-pound female MMA fighter in the world today, says that she would employ the “monkey crawl” from Bloodsport in order to get one over on the king of boxing.
Speaking during a recent interview with Power 106 radio, Rousey joked that if the gloves were off: "I would drop down to the ground and crawl over to him as fast as I can and then I'd grab him by the legs.”
“I wouldn't even stand up. I wouldn't even be anywhere near him."
When asked what would happen once the fight was taken to ground level, Rousey responded: "I spend a lot of time there and I doubt that he does.”
Although Rousey was obviously being tongue-in-cheek on this occasion, the California-born fighter clearly believes in her own abilities.
Back in November, she claimed that the idea of her beating UFC heavyweight champion Cain Valasquez in an MMA bout was not far-fetched.
"In any given moment, under the right circumstance, I think it is possible," Rousey told the Spanish-language newspaper Hoy. "You cannot tell me that it is physically impossible. It is possible that in any given moment that I could beat him. I simply believe in my possibilities."
