    Let's forget all this talk about Ronda vs. men cuz everybody knows she's not going to physically beat most male fighters who are bigger than her.

    But what about pint sized men like Floyd Mayweather and Bryan Caraway?

    IMO Ronda would beat Floyd 9 times out of 10 for 6 reasons:

    1) Floyd's a counterpuncher who knows how to counter punches, but he doesn't know how to counter a judoka's clinch without being thrown instantly. That's why Miesha would last longer against Ronda than Floyd, cuz at least she understands counter grappling pretty well.

    2) Floyd's not known for KO power and if Ronda bullrushes with hands held high to protect her chin, he sure as heck ain't gonna KO Ronda with 1 lucky punch before she grabs a hold of him. Maybe 1 time out of 10, but even that's stretching it. He can't even KO little men like Manny.

    3) Part of Floyd's great defense is that he clinches A LOT to slow down his opponent's offensive game and to get the ref to give him a free pass out of trouble. But he can't do that with Ronda. Plus his boxing-based clinch is laughable compared to a judoka's clinch.

    4) Boxing isn't real fighting which is why Floyd's defensive strategies work. He's got huge gloves to protect himself and his opponent has equally huge gloves which make it harder to get clean shots. Plus he can clinch and get ref assistance whenever he wants, which can't be done in a real fight. So IMO Floyd would be fucked in a real fight where his timid fighting strategies can't be used.

    5) Floyd's a small man fighting at 145 lbs. and really isn't any different than Ronda's smaller male training partners whom she can throw quite easily. It's bigger men like Rhadi and Gegard who give Ronda trouble (who both have black belts in Judo). Smaller men like Floyd, who have no judo training, would be easy pickins.

    6) In a REAL fight (on the street) she could knee or kick Floyd in the balls at full power and make him start singing like an opera singer. How can Floyd fight if his family jewels have been dented?

    IMO Ronda would beat Floyd in a REAL fight without boxing rules.

    I also believe that Ronda would likely submit Bryan Caraway cuz he's a weak puncher and his grappling is fairly slow compared to Ronda's slick transitions.

    But I'd give Caraway a better chance against Ronda than Floyd.

    This is a legit thread. I'm NOT saying Ronda can box with Floyd. I'm saying she can beat him in a REAL fight without boxing rules.

    But against bigger men, especially guys with grappling experience, Ronda would not last very long in a real fight. Just cuz she predicts otherwise doesn't mean she's delusional. It's just talk. Stop taking Ronda's comments so seriously fellas.

    Discuss.
