    I made a thread in the HWs about the double standard for boxers when it comes to MMA. They are expected to go in as pure boxers, they don't get time to build up a resume, etc. etc. I also say how i think they could make great MMA fighters if they cross-trained and dedicated themselves to it.

    Here's the thread:

    And to the mods: I'm not trying to start a boxing vs. MMA thread...just a thread about how a boxing background can relate to MMA.

    Insightful post. Unfortunately that place is a junior high locker room. You have less of a chance to converse logically than you do to see Paul Williams fight someone his own size.

    I educated some fools. Of course they'll shrug it off and swear that MMA fights Box (when they dont- they just throw punches)
