It's been a cross-discipline verbal battle for the ages. Ronda Rousey is a women's MMA fighting champion and noted Captain Marvel fan. Floyd Mayweather is an undefeated boxing king. They will never meet in the cage or the ring, but that hasn't stopped them from flinging insults at each other.

Rousey announced she could take out Mayweather in a no-rules fight. Mayweather responded with a reference to the obscene amount of cash he has made in his career, earning him the nickname "Money." He also announced his retirement after defeating his final opponent earlier this month, making an already improbable match with Rousey even more impossible.

Fight fans will just have to settle for a different way of determining a winner. YouTuber Richie Branson released a video on Friday pitting the two warriors against each other in a modded version of Street Fighter IV for PC. He created custom skins to make Rousey and Mayweather appear in video game form.

Branson wanted a fair fight, so he "simulated the Mayweather v. Rousey fight with both fighters controlled by the CPU." The video starts off with Mayweather and Rousey showing off their prowess against Street Fighter combatants like Fei Long and the green-skinned Blanka.

Rousey and Mayweather soon meet on the field of battle, a cruise ship stern. Mayweather's special power is called "Violent Buffalo" while Rousey wields the "Gyro Drive Smasher." I guess "Arm Bar" wasn't available.

The fight is incredibly close. You'll have to watch the video to see the winner.
