    Difference in striking or boxing?

    I doubt Floyd could handle old Buakaw in 2017 in an MT rules fight...but that's striking, not boxing.

    That's simply not true. His best punch is a counter left off his back foot against an advancing opponent. He mostly comes forward to draw the counter. That's how he KOed Alvarez and Aldo, and how he first hurt most of his prior opponents.

    It says nothing about MMA it shows how lousy boxing is and previously MMA fighters have shown how lousy K1 kickboxing is. No one made authentic Muay Thai look lousy because its not, its everything we imagine it is, boxing and K1 doesn't live up to what we expected as far as the standard of effectiveness they get to as specialists in striking.

    Put Connor in with a Muay Thai pro under thai rules, see what happens

    Even the highest level MMA, muay thai or whatever striking will all lose to a boxer in boxing. But the moment you give them 1 extra form of attack, whether it be knee, elbow, kicks, or whatever, the boxer will die. Boxers are just not trained in anything else. So they won't see the other attacks coming and won't know how to defend against it.

    Since the Mercer/Sylvia vid has been posted so many times in the heavies already, I'll just leave this here:



    On a serious note...you really think Floyd would have the same success under even just Muay Thai or even K-1 rules? I'm not even going to mention MMA...

    Clinch clinic. And strikes to the leg (kicks and knees)

    That feeling when you clinch up and in a fraction of a second you realize that they don't know how to clinch..... priceless

    No he wouldn't have the same success. Don't see what that has to do with the comparison between the levels of boxing in MMA and the levels of boxing in actual boxing though.

    You said striking, not boxing. Evidently you think boxers would just walk into Muay Thai and do fine with just boxing and nothing else. I'm here saying you are mistaken.

    What happened on Saturday was boxing...not striking as most people regard it. Boxing is striking but the most limited ruleset of striking.

    come on man buakaw would be too cowardly to face floyd in anything but a full moo tie match.
    in K-1 rules he gets embarrassed like the second Masto match after the humiliation ends buakaw leaves moo tie and turns pop-star.

    in full Moo Tie rules floyd outworks Buakaw in the clinch destroying a whole country martial tradition over 5 rounds.

    My trainer goes to Japan quite often because of the cross over events involving fighters from Korea and Japan. He says there are boxing gyms in Japan that won't teach you how to throw a jab until you can make a stance move around properly. Won't teach you the hook until you can throw a 1-2 perfectly. You'll apparently have fighter practicing just the 1-2 for a year before they can progress to other things. Could be a reason why Japanese fighters are doing so well.

    NO NO NO NO NO insert laughing thai lady gif...

    moo tie was invented by happy day sitting runes (Thai names i know so complicated).
    basically it was foot fencing with heavy hugging sessions, that was modified by romeo Dekkers who came in and beat all the thai's at their own game showing them the importance of punching.
    the japanese also came in, they had guys like tokyo sushikara mixing moo tie with japanese kung fu. the japanese kung fu was watered down from its effective base and renamed kickboxing.
    and moo (mu) in chinese means wood in the woods they have pigs and to live in the woods you need to be tough so protein from pigs it all ties together illuminati
