    I am a newbie when it comes to this as I would like to to train both styles but have been told the stances and footwork are different and I may confuse myself by training both at the same time. Thoughts?

    Boxing as a base but MT for the MMA diversity. Need more than you hands in the MMA arena. Just look at those traditional boxers that got destroyed in the early UFC, with NO Leg, or Ground game.
