    Both the Co-main and the main event this was the sole winner. Boxing as a martial art is severily underappreciated. IMO boxing is the best single martial art.

    Even Conor has a background in boxing.

    Edmond Tarverdyan is why Rhonda has no boxing skill. He's not even a MMA guy.

    I feel like many people doesn´t train boxing at all. They replace boxing with muay thai or kickboxing.

    Lol...No, it's still wrestling. If Cody and Amanda didn't have great TDD they would've been taken down and their proved ineffective.

    Boxing Is not a martial art......it's a science with a very sweet taste.

    Indeed, Nunes moved Ronda's head quite well.

    This is the boxing era of MMA, 3 of the best fighters in the sport have a solid amateur boxing background and are dominating with mainly boxing.

    BJJ is the "single" best, it is known.

    I don't know if I would go as far as saying it's the best single martial art, but it is very important, and as MMA evolves it's becoming more important.

    The new cool thing in MMA is movement, and boxing has always been much about footwork and angles – more so than Muy Thai or the various grappling disciplines at least.
