Floyd Mayweather on UFC champ Ronda Rousey: 'I don't even know who he is'


Even if Ronda Rousey could beat Floyd Mayweather in an MMA bout or street fight, as UFC President Dana White has argued, the boxing star apparently has no idea who “he” is.

Check out the above video (hat tip: MMAFighting.com) in which Mayweather, an undefeated multi-division boxing champion, is asked about the UFC’s dominant female champion.

“I don’t even know who he is,” Mayweather says.

Earlier this year, White made a bold claim by supporting the notion that the undefeated MMA fighter and Olympic bronze medalist could easily defeat the boxer on the street or in an MMA bout. (A boxing match, on the other hand…)

“You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly,” White said. “You do an MMA fight, same result. Boxing match, Floyd Mayweather chews her up.”

Apparently, word never got to “Money” Mayweather.

Check out White’s full comments below.
