This fight proved nothing.
Jds isnt even a wrestler and he was able to stuff cain's takedowns.
Ask Chuck how well he did against Rampage...
...and a good Muay Thai fighter would handily beat this boxer you speak of?
But Chuck isn't a good boxer, and Rampage is.
If he has good takedown defense, he is now a mixed martial artist, and no longer merely a boxer.
TDD grows on trees . .. that shit is just falling from the skies .. . especially when paired with great boxing
In other words, a MMA fighter.
He could stuff a few, but with the pace, he wilted. He got taken down like 8 times or something ( I wasn't counting)
JDS is a good boxer with TDD you fool
TDD is the most difficult thing in the world I think. A 240lbs wrestler is going to get you down if they work hard enough. Junior is just a man, physically anyone can be taken down. I don't believe there is a man alive that Daniel Cormier couldn't take down.
Easier said than done. We'll never see a good prime boxer in MMA or kickboxing to find out anyway. Best we get is failed amateur boxers who did it when they were younger and novice level pros who'll never do anything other than beat some taxi drivers in Brazil or something.
It proves you are totally wrong.
Exactly. When will people realize that TDD does not mean you have some ungodly power to stop all takedowns. The better wrestler will get you down.
And if that good boxer with good tdd had a good ground game, that would be crazy!
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
If it's that easy why don't we see a migration of boxers into the MMA world and showing the goods.
worked great for jds.
Dumb thread is dumb. Boxers train nothing but BOXING. It's ridiculous to think any MMA fighter would have the boxing of a top boxer. MMA fighters train boxing, but they're also having to train to check kicks, deal with clinch situations, while also training wrestling and BJJ.
When will people simply accept that they're two different sports? There are elements of boxing in MMA and that's the extent of it. There's a reason why MMA fighters tend to respect boxers more than boxers respect MMA fighters. MMA fighters train boxing. They can appreciate the skills of a top boxer. Boxers don't train muay thai or wrestling or boxing. They can't fully appreciate what goes on in an MMA fight. They're watching it from a boxing perspective and from a pure boxing perspective of course they're unimpressed with what they see in the boxing elements.
this thread is not even worth a "you mad" gif
Fighting is not that simple. Defensive striking, ability to fight at a fast pace and many other variables determine who wins.
Are you stupid or just trolling?
He might not be a wrestler but he spends alot of time working his TDD
Anyways JDS got owned
