    I feel like certain UFC fighters will soon start to challenge boxers at there own game.

    Call me crazy - but I feel if MMA fighters have more of a killer instinct, new fresh approach to competing in combat, thoughts?

    I hope nope because those fighters will be embarrassed. Virtually any pro boxer is going to outbox an MMA fighter. Unless you're talking about about a very select few mm artists going against mid level boxers. Anderson, Gsp, Aldo, mousasi, vitor, Jds. If th

    Jones could be a sick boxer if he could use his range in boxing.

    You need to plug in the fact that - the MMA artists will go into a fight with a different type of plan. Unless I am really missing something.

    I doubt this will happen, they would get completely embarrassed, just a boxer would against a high level MMA fighter under MMA rules.

    They are different sports, with boxing at this point in time having a deeper talent pool.

    Watch their aggression disappear when they start getting lit up.

    I dont get it -

    Fans are always so quick to say "IF THEY CAME OVER TO MMA THEY WOULD GET WHOOPED" but when I have some real faith in MMA fighters and start talking about them transferring over to boxing for a fight or two im crazy, lol.

    Get a grip people! open your mind!

    The boxing matches would be a lot more interesting with 4 ounce gloves. No more covering up the way European style kick boxers tend to do when they get into MMA. There would be a few upsets if that were the case, but of course that's never going to happen.

    I don't know about random fights, but in my opinion, some specific fighters should really consider a definitive transition into boxing.

    They would have to push the pace in order to have any chance to win. Obviously smart aggression is nessacery.

    Boxing is a whole different animal. I could see some top mma guys beating some midwest farm system scrubs but that's about it.
