Ronda Rousey vs Floyd Mayweather

The day after the Manny Pacquiao - Floyd Mayweather fight I said that the UFC should have Ronda Rousey challenge Mayweather to a $100 million winner-take-all fight. Mayweather would have to either refuse or no-comment the offer which would make him look afraid of a woman and make boxing look like a joke. Nothing but upside for the UFC though.

Now that Ronda Rousey is saying that she could beat Mayweather in a "fight" - could this actually be something that could come to fruition? If it did - I'd pay money to watch it and so would millions of others. It would be by far the biggest pay-per-view event in history!

But it won't happen.

It won't happen because Mayweather could lose. That would be the end of Mayweather and the final nail in the coffin for boxing. No matter what the potential payday - the risk is too great.

Too bad because I would have put my money on Rousey.
