So on SN Joe Rogan was asked about Floyd vs Ronda Rousey.
This is nothing new, I mean apparently the boxing vs MMA debate has hit the point now whereby MMA would win so to make it fair it needs to be female MMA vs Male boxing...

But listening to the debate made me very interested. Joe Rogan is of course the UFC Commentator, he was a US Open Tae Kwon Do Champion at Lightweight and became the grand champion by beating the MW and HW champions. He is also a Black Belt under Eddie Bravo at Jiu-Jitsu. but he has never competed in a Mixed Martial arts fight, amateur or professionally so his MMA/fighting experience is severely lacking.

So my question is this, who would win in a MMA fight, Joe Rogan or Floyd Mayweather.

There's so many factors we wouldn't know, how well can Joe Rogan take a punch, he's 46, has he got a chin, has he got an old man chin?

How strong are those kettle bells making him. Can he shoot for a takedown, can he lift Floyd off his feet, could he pull guard, can he sweep?

We know a lot about Floyd's abilities, there is no doubt the longer it gets the more it favours Floyd, and Floyds ring and overall fight experience would benefit him a tonne but could a guy who's never had a proffessional fight in his life and is really a ring side watcher, could he do what Randy Couture or Royce Gracie have done before him?
We hear Joe argue a lot about guys pulling guard, so would he himself go out there and pull guard?

Could Floyds athleticism cardio and speed could get the better of Joe's new BJJ and old Taekwondo game?

Combined arms is simply a better way to fight, when you only have one thing to defend against it is easy to prepare. MMA is simply a better way of fighting because of the no win situations that the opponent gets put into. This debate is old...

rogan would win by insulting mayweather until he cries and taps out.

Rogan 10 years ago, sure. Not now. His back is fucked, his knees are fucked and he's too old to be taking punches from one of the best punchers in combat sports. His reaction time wouldn't be quick enough to do what he wanted in time. He'd pick Floyd over himself in a heartbeat.

Anyone hear Anthony Pettis last night?

He said in an MMA match FMJ would beat Rousey without even boxing.

MMA fans are getting quite delusional. Rogan would chase Floyd around like a moron and then get slaughtered by the first punch thrown by Floyd. Ronda, who gets tagged right in the face in the beginning of every fight against slow women, would get blasted out in quick fashion too. Butt scooting towards Floyd is the best hope.
