    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
    Couture fight.

    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
    fight.

    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
    strict boxer.

    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.

    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.

  • thewhitehermit 2 years ago

    @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.

  • NotToBeTakenSeriously 2 years ago

    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.

  • joe guy 2 years ago

    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

  • Joe R. 2 years ago

    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.
