She can’t be serious.

Then again, maybe UFC champ “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is.

In a recently-surfaced interview with Power 106 FM, Rousey was asked if she could beat welterweight boxing champ Floyd Mayweather in a UFC bout.

It didn’t seem like she was joking.

“I wouldn’t even stand up, I wouldn’t even be anywhere near him,” Rousey told the station. “I would just do like a little army crawl over there, and he would have to run away.

“Too low for him to hit me and I’d tackle him down.”

Rousey (9-0) kept her unbeaten record intact at UFC 170 two weeks ago, earning a TKO win over Sara McMann after issuing her opponent a vicious knee to the liver.

It was a bit uncanny for the 27-year-old mixed martial artist, who usually submits her opponents via arm bar –- something she said she’d utilize if she ever met Mayweather in the octagon.

“I spend a lot of time there,” Rousey said of fighting on the floor. “I doubt that he does.”

Mayweather (45-0) is scheduled to defend his belt May 3 against Argentine boxer Marcos Maidana.

The UFC is still searching for someone on Rousey's level.
