    I ask because it might be a first if Dana White let Gervonta Davis who's been beefing with TJ on twitter into the UFC.

    Noons had a decent boxing record before coming to MMA, if I remember correctly.

    Alessio Sakara had some professional boxing matches before and after he joined the UFC in 2005. He never beat real competition, but his lone loss was to Monrose who went on to fight for the European title a couple of years later. Monrose only lost to guys like Huck, Herelius and Drozd who where among the best of the best at cruiserweight at the time, so it's no shame that Sakara couldn't get past him.

    There's been plenty. Not top-tier boxers, but plenty. They've been embarrassed, and generally are better going back to Boxing where they are ranked higher.

    HW is the hardest division. Everyone else cuts weight because they are too afraid of the real men.

    Clint Hester, had a pretty terrible boxing career came over to MMA and wrecked a couple of guys. His elbow KO of bristol marunde was fucking phenomenal. Dude started losing once he faced better opposition and has been MIA since tho.
