Floyd Mayweather Jr. may have won the latest ESPY for “Best Fighter”, but UFC commentator and experienced martial artist Joe Rogan believes the renowned boxer would easily be defeated by an average college wrestler.

Rogan reportedly made the comments in a recent interview with Ink Magazine, while the BJJ black belt discussed the short comings of boxing as a martial art. According to a report from MMA Mania, Rogan noted in the interview:

Although not considered a martial art, boxing is really a martial art. It’s a very limited martial art as long as you agree to just box. It’s only hands. There are no kicks; there are no takedowns. It’s effective in competition, but in an actual physical fight against someone who’s just a wrestler, you’re going to get killed. Floyd Mayweather would get killed by an average college wrestler. There would be no competition. If you took Floyd Mayweather today and made him fight against your average college wrestler, that college wrestler is going to shoot on him, pick him up, drop him on his head, and knock him out. There’s nothing that Floyd can do about it. He’s going to get knocked out by getting slammed on his head. A judo guy would do the same thing to him. A jujitsu guy would strangle him, no question about it.”

Of course, Rogan’s points are in keeping with what most MMA insiders and observers have been saying for years, but evidently the boxing vs. MMA debate continues on.
