    Boxing for mma doesn’t need to be at pro standard; just needs to be good enough for mma. You can make this same thread about any other discipline.

    Yes for sure but much different stance and hand positioning.

    Even with Muay Thai, you have to adjust your stance for TDS.

    It's why no one stands like a boxer you'll get taken down, clinched or kneed on the face all day.

    You think that shoulder role shit is going to work? Lol, that lead leg getting eaten up then Double legged

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    I mean... yeah, he looks great. He was also most likely a boxer, I'd be worried if he didn't look better than MMA fighters on the bag

    Dustin Poirer uses shoulder roll just fine. As with other boxing defences, everything has application in MMA. Just don’t be scared, homie!

    True, but it's why so many MMA guys look like they hav shit boxing. Because they are throwing strikes for MMA in anticipation of a shot or a kick.

    Unlike boxing
    where you can stand legs wide apart, bladed shoulders, Bob and weave, front foot on that nice 45 degree angle , all the bullshit that will have your legs eaten up in MMA.

    Sure thing, pure boxing or MT will give you a very bad habits for MMA, especially if they’re your first exp in combat sports.

    I agree in general but I also think there is a lot more useful techniques mixed martial artists can learn from boxing than there is techniques that are not applicable. I also understand thats its very hard to make time to properly learn every phase of mma needed at a decent level (submission defence/offence, grappling, takedown defence, clinch grappling, clinch striking, striking in the pocket, striking at range) but in general most mma fighters have poor mechanics when it comes to even basic punching and defensive movements. In other words most of them look sloppy and they throw telegraphed punches.

    I’d love to see high level professional boxers put on mma gloves and spar. It would be interesting to see what (if anything) it does to their punches and defense.

    Then again, anyone who has ever worn a pair of 6-8oz professional boxing gloves will tell you the difference between them and 4oz mma gloves isnt much. Those pro boxing gloves feel small.

    I would also argue that mma is a fist fight First. The take downs, wrestling, jits, kicks and everything else is secondary. Fighters throw more punches than the rest of the strikes combined and typically spend more time on their feet than on the ground.
