Earlier in the week we reported that Ronda Rousey went on a radio show and vowed that she could be Floyd Mayweather in an MMA fight.
I wouldn’t even stand up, I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him. I would just do like a little army crawl over there, and he would have to run away. I would just be skittering after him like the one dude inBloodsport that was doing the whole monkey crawl fight system. I would do that. I would just bear crawl over there too low for him to hit me, and I’d tackle him down…. I spent a lot of time [on the ground], and I doubt that he does.
Today in Las Vegas as part of the Canelo Alvarez-Alfredo Angulo fight weekend festivities, Bernard Hopkins appeared on the 97.5 The Fans Jon and Sean Show.
Hopkins told my good friend Jon Marks that “Rousey would indeed beat Mayweather in an MMA match because Floyd would be out of his element.”
Bernard Hopkins said that Ronda Rousey could beat Floyd Mayweather because he'd be out of his element in an MMA ring/fight. Thoughts?

I wonder how pound-for-pound feels about all this slick MMA talk?
