Let's face it, Ronda Rousey is the biggest name in Mixed Martial Arts. Last Saturday night, the UFC bantamweight champion disposed of Cat Zingano in only 14 seconds to improve her record to 11-0. Instead of trying to figure out which female challenger should be next in line to get a shot at her belt, here are five male athletes that I would like to see Rousey step into the Octagon with.

    Hulk Hogan

    The former WWE and WCW heavyweight champion is a pro wrestling icon, but we all know that the Hulk Hogan had only one signature move, the leg drop. "What you gonna do, Hulkster, when Ronda Rousey puts the straight right armlock on you?"

    Johnny Manziel

    The NFL's most annoying young player is just looking to get his ass kicked. After a lackluster rookie season with the Cleveland Browns that saw him enter rehab this offseason, a Pay Per View main event bout against Rousey would have Johnny Football running for the exit.

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez is back in baseball and the New York Yankees are still trying to find a way to get out of the $61 million they owe him over the next three seasons. The PED poster child of baseball's steroid era would be no match for the 5'7, 135-pound Rowdy one, who would make A-Rod wish he was still suspended by Major League Baseball.

    Ray Rice

    This is a dream matchup strictly because millions of men and women would pay good money to see what would happen to one of the most hated men in pro football if he was all alone in the octagon with the toughest female in pro sports.

    Floyd Mayweather

    The Money Man is preparing to add at least another $120 million into his wallet when he meets Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd in Las Vegas in the richest fight in boxing history. What would make the meeting with Rousey interesting is Floyd said "I don't Know Who He Is," when asked about her last summer.
