Yea I don't see Ronda beating him. I don't like Mayweather at all but with his speed and being an elite boxer I would be surprised if he didn't KO her within the first 20 seconds. She wouldn't even get a chance for a takedown.

At first I was like yea Ronda would take him down and do what she wants.

But thinking more, Mayweather is the best boxer in the world. His whole game is being fast, footwork, and avoiding. I don't see why he could avoid her enough to find a lightening fast jab as he circles. All he needs to do is find her face once with not even a hard shot. I think the best boxer in the world could avoid her for the few seconds he needs to land 1 shot.

I could defiantly see the scenario where Ronda subs him but I think it is more likely that he tags her with a combo she doesn't even see coming.

FOr the record I can't stand Mayweather.

Yes. I can see her taking him down once she grabs him and a can see her armbaring him on the ground. That's if she can close the distance to grab him. That IF is the problem, I don't see how she can close the distance with a boxer that Mayweather is. She took the shots from Tate & Co., but didn't really like it. For Maywather it would only be target practice and with his skill and power advantage she wouldn't be able to walk through his shots.

It is a lot easier for a wrestler with a good shot to face Mayweather than a Judo player. Randy doesn't even have a good shot, but he shot from distance and got Toney's ankle. Now Toney was a 40 what? Year old fat tubby man who showed up for the paycheck. While Randy was a former champion and near Olympian himself. Not to mention a man. Randy didn't want to get in close for a clinch. Obviously that is a given, but just how far out he started his shot shows the level of not wanting to get anywhere in range.

Ronda hardly ever gets into the clinch without eating a shot or two or three on her way in. A shot or two with those tiny gloves by Mayweather would end her night, in my speculation.

Not really. He has no chance in hell getting past low/mid tier 135rs, much less the likes of wineland, mcdonald, urijah, dill, barao. Hell, jorgensen would easily gnp him to death.

But if you're talking about an athletic freak with legit power like tyson, now that's something else. He could kill someone with those mma gloves lol

Mayweather gets >$30mil per fight in boxing, so he isn't going to fight MMA anyways...

I bet if you take all the salaries combined (not including sponsorship) of EVERY SINGLE UFC fighter, Mayweather would still outearn them in one fight.

JDS
Hunt
Overeem
Hendo
Machida
Anderson Silva
Condit
Edgar

I think Mayweather would knock her out. Who the hell knows with this freakshow type speculation, but in my mind I can't see Ronda getting a hold of mayweather. I see him shoving her away and making her pay.

It's a proven scientific fact that women have about 60% of the muscle strength of a man of the same weight and built. That's a MASSIVE edge. In most sports the women Olympic records are lower than the collegiate men's records. Much lower.

At the first gym I went to, the few times I rolled with women when I was just starting out, I had zero problems with women who had been doing it for 4-5 years. I'm talking I could power out of a fully latched on armbar most of the time, and they never managed a takedown even once unless I let them. The strength differential is that big. Most gyms don't allow cross gender rolling or sparring for this reason and I agree, and when they do it's usually considered a gentlemanly courtesy to give the ladies a little leeway and let them win a little for learning purposes.

IMO this and most cross-gender sport debates are stupid ... it doesn't matter the technique edge Ronda has, the strength and athletics differential is too massive to overcome, especially with another elite combat athlete like Floyd who is by far the best at his craft. She could beat scrubs or amateur male fighters her size possibly but not an elite combat athlete like Mayweather regardless of short training time for him or her grappling technique edge.
Very well written here, and I totally agree, the strength difference is too great.
