Welcome to the internet. That is the standard.
BJ Penn, Masvidal and undeniably Garbrandt.
To some degree although I do think he's actually more of a conventional boxer than many MMA fighters who'se boxing is respected. The "neo footwork" school at 135lbs or indeed Fedor back in the day are all more heavily MMA adapted for me with there feet less planted depending on head movement and often looping punches.
Probably the best pure boxers in MMA history would be Sergei and Lil Nog, both could potentially have gone to the Olympics.
GSP would jab Conor to death.
Cody and Cruz
This is just a purely objective thread. If not, what kind of thread do you think it is? And don't say it's pointless and unreasonable. Not dicksucking, not gay, not gaye, not ghey, not fangirlism, not biased, not stupid, not pointless, not dickriding, not hero worship, not shilling, not "TS needs to get a life", and not "TS needs to get a new non-gay/gaye/ghey life"
primie BJ, Arlovski and the Diaz bros
Not in UFC anymore, but deserves mentioning. Albert Tumenov have really good amateur boxing record.
Gökhan Saki is miles better.
the boxing IQ on these forums Is painful
Yup. Game over. People forget that this happened.
I'm saying that Conor landed a good shot on Aldo. But he took a shot of his own to land it. And Aldo connected even though he was unconscious. That's not to take anything away from the win. But it does take some juice from the thread topic, which suggests that Conor is the best boxer in MMA.
I'm also saying that the uppercut on Floyd that people keep posting was Conor's best shot of the night, and even so, it wasn't the hard clean shot some people want to make it out to be. It landed off to the side with the knuckles of Conor's pinky and (maybe) ring finger. Again, this isn't to take anything away from the fact that Conor did land a counter uppercut on Floyd, which is nothing to sneeze at. But it was one shot, and it wasn't a dangerous one.
What in hell are you on about? I'm not making excuses. Floyd got the TKO. What excuses does he need. Of COURSE Floyd was the fighter with the advantage due to his boxing experience and skill.
I'm talking about REVERSING the fight and making it Conor vs Floyd in a cage.
Now Conor has the experience advantage...
AND the size advantage.
AND the age advantage.
Most MMA fighters won't take an MMA match against a guy with those advantages. Why would a boxer?
In the boxing ring Floyd had ONLY the experience advantage.
That's the only reason that the fight made any sense at all. If Conor was smaller than Floyd, and was much older, and retired, and Floyd was the bigger, younger man, that fight would have made ZERO sense and would not have been sanctioned.
You can't just reverse that fight and act like it's a one to one trade of "I fought you in your sport; now you fight me in mine."
Who are you Troglodytes? Mayweather is a serial beater of women and a first class piece of shit. Is your post a joke?
Nate Diaz, the guy who outboxed him.
So you saying Ali never got hit in the face, let alone knocked out?
Tyson never got hit in the face or KO'd?
Where does this imaginary boxer who never gets hit come from? Now add in little 4oz gloves and you see that its even more difficult to evade punches in MMA than boxing due to needing a smaller space to still land. Defenses like the peek a boo or philly shell do not work in MMA with tiny gloves. Some punches you can block but a fighter must move their feet, head and parry strikes in order to evade being hit. Sooner or later anyone takes a shot.
