Move over, Floyd Mayweather. Ronda Rousey has someone new to hate.
A couple of months ago, Dana White sparked a worldwide debate by saying Rousey would “rag doll” Mayweather if the two squared off in the Octagon. While many believe Rousey would indeed handle business in a no-rules fight, former UFC brawler Tank Abbott thinks it’s all just a bunch of noise. On the Proving Grounds podcast, he said anyone who believes Ronda could handle the undefeated boxer is high – because Mayweather would “knock the living stuffing out of Rousey.”
But he didn’t stop there. We know it might be surprising, but it turns out a guy nicknamed “Tank” has some feelings about women – feelings he’d like to share with you right now.
“[Rousey] is a girl. It’s all about this emotional stuff,” Abbott said. “I will tell you this: I don’t care, I will fight any woman on this Earth for free. I will. She will have to make me a sandwich – that’s what I get for winning.”
Abbott didn’t stop there, either. He offered $100,000 to any woman who can beat him – “You’re going to get bashed up good,” the 50-year-old former street fighter promised – and said he wouldn’t even train for a potential fight with a female. Oh, and about that:
“You can’t be, like, a tranny,” Abbott added. “You gotta be a female. Born a female.”
Rousey has said before that she would never fight a man – for the simple reason that “I don’t think we should celebrate a man hitting a woman in any kind of setting” – but perhaps she could make an exception just this once and take Tank up on his challenge? We’re sure there are plenty of folks out there who’d love to see him get knocked the fuck out.
