The Floyd Mayweather - Ronda Rousey feud has been rumbling along for months now with both fighters throwing their fair share of verbal punches.

And, after events this week, it doesn't look like either side is ready to back down just yet - although Rousey does have a suggestion for how it could be settled once and for all.

Fighting talk

Speaking during a Reddit AMA, and in the aftermath of Mayweather's most recent slant, the UFC Superstar claimed she would defeat the boxer should they ever go head-to-head in a "no-rules" fight.

Rousey hasn't exactly had much positive to say in regards in to Floyd Mayweather recently, but did begin her answer to the question, 'Does she think she could beat Mayweather in a no-rules fight?', with some positive words on the unbeaten American:

""Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time. He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don't get into 'matches'," she began.

Her kind words didn't effect her eventual answer though:

"I fight for a living. In a no-rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet. Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said ruleless fight, and that's my honest answer."

Tough to call

Ronda Rousey is perhaps the most exciting fighter in the world right now and, as she continues to desamate her female opponents in the Octagon, her confidence is sky high.

Whether she could truly go toe to toe with one of the greatest boxer's in the history of the sport is something that is sure to be hotly debated by fight fans the world over.

Although Mayweather fans might point to his unbeaten record and killer right hook the no-rules aspect certainly plays into the hands of the MMA specialist, Rousey.
