There is some dispute over whether UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey could beat the greatest boxer of his generation Floyd Mayweather Jr. How about FMJ vs. undefeated UFC male bantamweight Aljamain Sterling?
On a recent periscope session, UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman related how Mayweather did not want to find out, when the boxer tried to pick up Sterling's girl.
“Palhares is a guy I don’t really care for; He’s a dirty guy who likes hurting people then he plays the nice guy after he breaks their legs,” said Shields to Mike Bohn for MMAjunkie on today’s WSoF 22 media call. “He’s a bad person so it makes me want to go out there and punch him. … I might not care for Palhares, but he is extremely good at leg locks.”
UFC bantamweight and team Blackhouse member Pedro Munhoz beat Jerrold Sanders in 39 seconds at UFC Fight Night 53 on October 4 in Halifax, NS. Although it was never announced, Munhoz was told he failed a post-fight test for elevated levels of testosterone; the win was changed to a No Contest.
