This was what Rousey declared during an "Ask Me Anything" chat on Reddit.com on Aug. 11:
"Floyd (Mayweather, Jr.) is one of the best boxers of all time. He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don't get into 'matches.' I fight for a living.
"In a no-rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet. Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said 'ruleless fight,' and that's my honest answer."
Last month, Rousey referred to Mayweather's domestic battery past. This was after she beat him for the "Best Fighter" award at the 2015 ESPYS.
"I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once," Rousey told ESPN. "I'd like to see him pretend to not know who I am now."
Mayweather denied knowing Rousey in a July 2014 interview, per ESPN.
Rousey told ESPN she does not believe Mayweather:
"I know for damn sure he knew who I was. He was running against me for Best Fighter that year, and he had signed MMA fighters, so his feigned ignorance was meant to really be a snarky remark to me.
"I don't let those kind of things aside, but I'm also a patient girl. I'm not the kind of chick you make snarky remarks about. I waited a whole year to say something. And you know what? If I didn't win Best Fighter this year, I would have waited two years or three years."
Rousey came up with several interesting anwers in her Reddit chat on Tuesday evening.
She singled out Demetrious Johnson as her favorite male fighter in the UFC:
"Demetrious Johnson. I think he's the most well-rounded and I feel like I'm watching one of the later episodes of Dragon Ball Z when you only see one second of action going on between them disappearing 'cuz they're going so damn fast.
"I wouldn't be surprised if rocks start levitating around the ring because of all the energy emanating from it. Might Mouse vs. Dominick Cruz was one of my favorite (and most under-appreciated) fights ever."
Rousey also said "winning my Olympic medal" is her proudest achievement, per Reddit.com.
She then describes her ideal date.
"doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING," Rousey wrote on Reddit.com. "If a guy is lame, he'll have to come up with activities to distract you from his lameness. If he's all kinds of awesome, doing nothing with him (will) be all kinds of awesome."
Rousey said she does not let the media's perception of her affect her:
"I accept that I have NO control over my image already. So, I try not to let the state of my perception have any effect on my happiness. You can never truly know anyone through only media anyway. If anything I just try to keep in mind that I'm an entertainer and not a politician or Miss America."
She also did not give any specific number on how many years she'll fight in the UFC:
"I don't think of it as 'time' or 'matches' left - I think of it more as as fight time left. So...if I have a few 5 round wars I'm not going to keep fighting nearly as long as if I keep walking out of the cage with unscathed victories. So the faster and more efficient my fights are, the longer I can fight."
Lastly, Rousey discussed a potential match-up with Cyborg, per Reddit.com:
"Sincere opinion about Cyborg: she's just waiting to be offered enough money to get her ass kicked ('cuz she knows she'll get her ass kicked). I know for a fact she can make the weight.
"She made 145 pumped full of steroids. She can healthily make 135 without them. Her shows that she headlines lose thousands of dollars, and the majority of the tickets are given away because no one will buy them. She needs me.
"So pretty much we're waiting for her to realize that she needs to fight me before I retire or she'll never have enough money to retire. I would like me kicking her ass be my retirement fight but whether she steps up or not I'll walk away undefeated and happily ever after regardless."
