    The former UFC fighter has challenged Rousey to a $100,000 bout.
    [​IMG]GETTY/ONLINE WORLD OF WRESTLING[​IMG]
    “Former UFC fighter and pro wrestler David “Tank” Abbott says he could easily “bash” up undefeated UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey. His reasoning? “She’s a girl.”

    Weighing in on the debate over who would win a fight between Rousey and Floyd Mayweather on “The Proving Ground” podcast this week, Abbott said the boxer would “knock the living stuffing out of Rousey.”

    “She’s a girl. It’s all about this emotional stuff,” he said.

    Abbott, an icon from the early days of UFC, went on to issue a formal challenge to “any woman on this Earth.”

    “I don’t care, I will fight any woman on this Earth for free … I won’t even train,” he said on his podcast. “I will fight you and if I win, which is going to happen, and you’re going to get bashed up good, you have to make me a sandwich. If you win, I’ll give you a hundred thousand dollars.”

    Abbott added a caveat to his offer: “You can’t be, like, a tranny … you gotta be a female. Born a female.”

    Earlier this year, Rousey one-upped Mayweather at the 2015 ESPY Awards, snagging the title of “Best Fighter.” At the time, UFC president Dana White said that Rousey would easily crush the boxer in a fight.

    Ronda would rag doll him,” White told TMZ.

    During his podcast, Abbott argued that anyone who believed such a thing had to be high on drugs.

    “What kind of medical marijuana are people smoking?” he asked.

    As Bleacher Report notes, Rousey has “dominated the women's bantamweight division in UFC, winning all 12 of her fights under the banner, 11 of which were inside the opening round.” Abbott, on the other hand, has a “meagre 10 wins from 25 bouts.”

    In a Reddit AMA in August, Rousey said she believes she could “beat anyone on this planet” in a “no rules fight.”

    She's said previously, however, that she doesn't think it would wise for her to fight a man, mainly because of the message it would send.

    “I don't think it's a great idea to have a man hitting a woman on television,” she told the Daily Beast in March.

    This is a man that demands to be taken seriously.

    Tank has an odd sense of humour. His novels are evidence of that. Hard to tell when he is being honest.

    100k isn't nearly enough to coax her into that fight. Not even close.

    If she could convince Floyd Mayweather to fight for like 100 million, now THAT might be worth it.

    This dude looks like his wife wasn't enough and now he wants a piece of his daughter. How many beers does he drink before he fights Rousey?

    Yeah, he probably would. Also Rousey is just an idiot if she actually believes this:
