You're comparing 2 different sports. That's just like the way not all bjj world champions can be good at mma or olympic wrestlers. Boxing may have a limited skill set in the fight game but IMHO it is harder than mma. It takes longer to learn, you have to eat punches or get out of the way. Theres so much to it with foot work, head movement, conditioning etc.

Now I know Donald is a kickboxer but he has GREAT hand strikes and throws really good solid compact punches. Thats why its so puzzling to see him lose.
Yeah his great boxing really showed vs Diaz

Yeah, I would say Condit is very similar although I feel he is a better, more versatile kicker and also stronger guard player than Cerrone. Plus Jones... lol

Holly Holm, though. That girl is the best boxer in wmma, for sure. She is the person under Winkeljohn's tutelage who has impressed me with her hands, feet and head the most.
