Ronda Rousey's SI cover leaves her speechless
Tuesday May 19th, 2015

Ronda Rousey has been fielding questions about whether she could beat Floyd Mayweather in a fight for a long time. The woman dubbed by Sports Illustrated as "the world's most dominant athlete" said in March 2014 that she could and Manny Pacquiao agrees with her

Mayweather said in July that he didn't know who Rousey was. He didn't even know she was a woman.

Not surprisingly, Rousey was asked again about fighting Mayweather in an interview with Access Hollywood on Monday.

"Well, I would never say that I can't beat anyone," Rousey said. "I don't think that me and him would ever fight, unless we ended up dating."

Is Rousey making an innocent joke about how couples have their disagreements, or is she making a reference to Mayweather's extensive history of violence against women?
