Floyd Mayweather says he doesn't know who Ronda Rousey is

Tuesday July 15th, 2014

Ronda Rousey is the best female mixed martial artist in the world. Floyd Mayweather is (probably) the best boxer in the world. But Mayweather doesn't know who Rousey is. What's more, he doesn't even know Rousey is a woman.

In a video from BoxingScene.com's David Greisman, Mayweather is asked for his thoughts on Rousey and responds, "Actually, I don't even know who he is."

Rousey said in March that she believes she can beat Mayweather in an MMA fight. UFC president Dana White said in May that not only would Rousey beat Mayweather, "She'd hurt him badly."

Rousey won her July 5 fight at UFC 175 in stunning fashion, defeating Alexis Davis in a mere 16 seconds. 

Mayweather's next fight is a rematch with Marcos Maidana on Sept. 13. Mayweather defeated Maidana in May by majority decision.
