  • Floyd Mayweather on Fighting Ronda Rousey: ‘I Don’t Even Know Who He Is’ By: C.J. Tuttle

    UFC President Dana White is on the record saying that unbeaten women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey could best undefeated boxing king Floyd Mayweather in a street fight or MMA contest.

    With Mayweather’s sights firmly set on his date with Marcos Maidana on Sept. 13 in Las Vegas, the undisputed champion hasn’t had any time to address the comments. In fact, Mayweather doesn’t even seem to know who Rousey is.

    When asked during an interview posted by David Greisman of boxingscene.com if he ever would fight Rousey, Mayweather responded with one heck of a quote.

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

    Surely Mayweather was just playing possum, right?

    Rousey did just defeat Alexis Davis via technical knockout at UFC 175 in Mayweather’s backyard of Las Vegas – in a tidy 16 seconds, at that. For the time being, this potential boxing vs. MMA “superfight” is on hold due to Rousey’s current hand ailment.

    Ronda Rousey has been nominated for two ESPY Awards. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com



    Three Ultimate Fighting Championship titlists -- Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones and Chris Weidman -- have received ESPY nominations for 2014.

    Rousey leads the way with two nominations: “Best Female Athlete” and “Best Fighter.” Jones will compete against Rousey in the “Best Fighter” category, while Weidman’s UFC 162 triumph over then middleweight champion Anderson Silva is a candidate for “Best Upset.”

    An online fan vote on ESPN.com will decide winners in 33 categories, which also include “Best Team,” Best Breakthrough Performance” and “Best Championship Performance,” among others. The ceremony takes place on July 16 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles and airs on ESPN.

    Jones and Silva were nominated for “Best Fighter” in 2013, but boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. ultimately captured the honor for a fifth time. The category was changed from “Best Boxer” in 2007 to include MMA. However, a mixed martial artist has yet to win the award since the change, despite the likes of Silva, Jones, Georges St. Pierre, Lyoto Machida, Quinton Jackson and Randy Couture receiving nominations. Jones and Rousey are joined in the “Best Fighter” category by Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and Andre Ward.

    Meanwhile, Rousey will go head-to-head against the WNBA’s Maya Moore, alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin and University of Connecticut basketball standout Breanna Stewart for “Best Female Athlete.”

    Weidman is matched up with a pair of men’s college basketball upsets: the University of Connecticut basketball team’s national championship triumph as a No. 7 seed and No. 14 seed Mercer’s first-round shocker against Duke in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
