    It's a D level sport full of unathletic bums that are content with making 8k/8k for getting punched in the face.

    even the champions make pennies compared to boxing

    Stipe made 600k for his last fight against ngannou while boxer Anthony Joshua made 10 million for defending his title against a bum


    LOL

    Then why are you commenting on a MMA forum.

    Says more about your bum life.

    Insecure boxing fans.

    Until you idiots can come up with consistent definitions of A-level, B-level, C-level, etc., could you please just shut the fuck up?

    There's like 10 boxers that make decent money. They don't get A level athletes either. Deontay Wilder was a a juco basketball player and won a bronze medal in boxing after 3 years of training.

    Sadly you have a point. They can't attract talent and so they resort to bringing in trash talkers and famous pro wrestlers.

    If Ronda was not a shit talker we would not give a shit about her ability or wmma.

    Or if conor was a regular personality he would simply be considered a Melvin guillard level fighter with shit cardio.

    UFC is so greedy that no one wants to destroy their joints and knee caps by learning a grueling and wear and tear inducing martial arts like thia boxing and grappling for a chump change.

    Conor has beaten Aldo, Alvarez, Nate, Poirier, Holloway, Mendes etc.....

    How do you have 6,000 posts and still make shit posts?

    Embarrassing.

    What is an A level athlete to you? Being many ex NFL players have came into mma.
    Michael Westbrook fought mma.. Hershel Walker fought mma..
    Charlie Powell fought in boxing..
    Wes Shivers fought mma..
    Even Schaub, Mitrione, Lesnar, Sapp, Marcus Jones, Morton, etc etc.. all played in the NFL or made it to the NFL briefly.
    Many ex college wrestlers are very athletic too, like Ed Ruth, Aaron Pico, Henry Cejudo..

    Marcus Jones was A-level, but old when he got there. The other guys in the football conversation were D-level for football. Brock probably was more B-level and experience hurt him. Don't know who Morton was.

    There already have been some A level athletes in MMA, or at least very close to it. Div 1 and olympic caliber wrestlers are no joke athletically. And pre-diverticulitis Brock was one of the most freakish human beings ever seen in any sport.

    Hershel Walker was D Level? Westbrook was D Level? Simmer down, you obviously aren't old enough to have watched games or attended games with them playing. Jones was def not on their level, even though considered by casuals to be A Level.
