I took boxing for 2 years, and know the sport pretty well. And I will be
the first to say that boxing, just by itself, will lose to MMA 9 times out
of 10. Why? Because you are talking about 1 limited style (boxing-
punching) vs. 2-3 styles (MMA- kickboxing, wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
=grappling, submissions, punches, knees, & kicks).
A boxer’s strength comes from two things- his footwork AND his punching
technique. You take away his ability to move, or you take away his legs, he
will lose all his power. Don’t believe me- watch “Boxer vs. Kickboxer”
by newburghzchamp on YouTube. Or just watch the James Toney vs. Randy
What Randy Couture did in that fight was smart fighting- using Toney’s
disadvantage against him. He knew by wrestling Toney to the ground, he
(Toney) would lose all his punching power, which would be a good setup for
a BBJ submission.
However, I would like to see an MMA fighter stand up and a fight a boxer in
an MMA with no wrestling, just kicks, knees, and punches. Even then, the
boxer would likely lose, but it would be a more entertaining and longer
I wouldn’t have minded watching Toney fight someone who wants to stand in
Bang. But Randy was a horrible matchup. An Olympic Greco Wrestler vs a
That fight had the obvious result even with all the pressure on randy, with
that said one of my all time favorites junior dos santos was a pure boxer,
no doubt he had been trained for cage fighting but he was a boxer, and
until cain part 2 he was an unstoppable killer
Boxers can do well in the UFC but they must have solid BJJ like the Diaz
brothers. Boxing alone won’t cut it.
@michael g Dana said he wud make the fight with fury vs Velasquez and said
he will get smashed and any right minded person would agree fury vs Cain in
mma? Fury gets steamrolled and has a few dents beaten into the side of his
head no comparison
probably because you like to see brutality and freak knockouts and blood
but if you understand the technical side of Combat Sports you will prefer
Boxing. Try watching a Floyd Mayweather or Andre Ward fight, the head
movement, dipping & rolling, footwork and shot selection is quite
incredible to watch. All of those things take years to master.
@jason bean jake shields is no good?? tell that to dan henderson, yushin
okami, carlos condit, robbie lawler and all the other great fighters he’s
ohhh. temper problem?
Best quote of 2010: ”Tune in on saturday night your gonna see the most
spectacular battle and a war”.
are you on crack?
toney got played
boxing = 8 guys who make 10 million + and 984732985879475 guys who make 20k
per fight. mma = 20 guys who make 2 million + and 100 guys who make 100k
plus. Mma pays better for the vast majority. Just not the top dogs.
Although mma is starting to get better promotion with anderson reportedly
making 10 million in his last fight. Mma = growing Boxing = Dying. The
smart money goes with mma. Fucking. Child.
yea james is the pussy lmao to bad coture was so fucking scared he wouldnt
even trade one time with toney but toneys the pussy. Kid go jerk off to a
Dana White has a big fucking HEAD!! And boxing and MMA are the same thing!
A fight is a fight! Whether it’s on the floor or not!
I do take shots to the chin, from actual fighters in the boxing gym
everyday.. You should take one on the chin bjj fanboy!!
BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT MY FRIEND 80 AMATURE FIGHTS 10 LOST I AM A REAL
MAN..YOU KNOW I JUST GET UPSET HOW THEY TRY TO COMAPRE BOTH SPORTS IS NOT
THE SAME AND THE REASON I GET UPSET BECAUSE I GREW UP ON BOXING HEY IM NOT
GOING TO FRONT IM A BIG FAN OF MMA LOVE IT BUT IMA STAND UP FOR MY BOXING
SO MY BAD IF I OFENDED YOU.
HE should come back……
junior could never beat toney in stand up thats a joke if you think this
why isnt he a boxer? boxers make more money thats why he fights to make
i just dont find boxing interesting… its so fucking boring
@shownomrcy Same scenario
@HCNguyen86 i agree with you completely! i would like to see any of these
boxers who shit on mma and groundfighters to go pick a street fight with a
grappler or an mma fighter! it would be an education in pain for them! they
think its pointless or GAY to tap someone out! but what they dont realize
is that in a street fight where there isn’t a referee to pull the guy off
of you a boxer would get choked out or choked to death or get one of his
arms or legs broken! so let the boxers talk shit!
Thank you. I hope to find the time and energy for it one day soon.
I never said Boxing wasn’t key or valuable in mma.. Of course it is. You
just lack the comprehension skills to comprehend what I wrote. Read it
again you moron. Also the boxing foot work you talk about in mma IS NOT the
boxing foot work that boxers learn. It is a wider stance and is specific to
mma, not the “keeping your body thin” footwork of boxing.. Shut up idiot.
If grappling is such a pussy thing for you guys them go grapple with an
experienced judo or wrestler or bjj guy and see you get tossed around and
tapping out like little bitches….lol….neither is better mma and boxing
are two different sports..pure boxers don’t belong in mma.and pure mma
fighters should stick with mma..and don’t say mma fighters cant box I train
muay Thai and know allot of very skilled boxers who realized the difference
and give me props..some mma fighters were boxers
It’s funny you say that. I took Tang Soo Do for 4 years, and that’s what
most of it felt like. I passed my black belt test and did not even go to
the initiation to get the belt. It was no longer and excited moment, so I
stayed home and wished I would had spent the last 4 years in BJJ. I really
wish I would had taken wrestling when I was a kid through high school. I
had no idea it was the foundation for fighting.
Id like to join, hit me up, Xbox gamer Tucker6900
Man there's a lot of fliping! It also has a 4-wide finish! 1. #22 2. #29 3.
yes world wide west did past you below the yellow line
Yeah I saw Revan's vid and wes passed you below the yellow line
I'm so mad I lagged out with 6 laps of regulation time to go. God Dangit!
@MICHAEL24AZ We would add more people but the problem is, usually atleast
