    An interesting theory by Chael is that all those insider talkings between collaboration of Mayweather with Dana, Tyson wanting Stipe etc... is that it all will happen in a new "hybrid sport" which is basically boxing under an UFC setting. What do you say? and you already know you are buying.

    Would have to be approved by states who have commission.
    (like Vegas, CSAC)

    But some promotion already do mix event nowadays.

    Would be interesting but I have a feeling it would just be like normal boxing.

    So an in-between for boxing and bare knuckle? For people who aren't skillful enough to box, but aren't hard enough to bare knuckle? Sounds great.

    I can’t imagine it being anything other than normal boxing. It’s hard enough trying to get the mainstream to accept MMA, and Dana clearly wants to be mainstream. If he could somehow manage to get Tyson Fury vs Stipe and Floyd vs McGregor or Khabib it would be a huge event.

    I laughed

    One has been doing some Muay Thai with 4 ounce gloves and shit is pretty dope though.

    Haggerty vs Rodtang was fire recently.

    Who knows, won't surprise me to add some flare to it all.

    Boxing outside of few guys have hard time getting buzz going around events.

    Pure Boxing match inside a cage. Doesn't really interest me much. I would be sold there is a rule modification to permit clinching, punching during a clinch, and holding someone on the fence. Then I would be sold.

    I figured it would be normal boxing rules in the Octagon. Lighter gloves would be cool but not 4oz and definitely not open finger.

    If they are going to change some rules they should legalize leg punches.

    I fucking hope not, boxers take enough damage without having to deal with 12 rounds of taking punches to the head from fighters wearing 4oz gloves
