UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has dominated her opponents since coming on the scene and is ready to set her sights even higher.  

Rousey, who is an Olympic bronze medalist in judo, said she could beat undefeated welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather if he were ever so inclined to step into the octagon.

"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," Rousey told Power 106 FM.

Rousey dispatched Sara McMann in less than two minutes in her last fight in February.

"I would just be skittering after him like the one dude in Bloodsport that was doing the whole monkey crawl fight system," Rousey said. "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."
