    I have been seeing fanatical Tyson Fury fans on here saying how he would beat MMA fighters in an MMA fight...

    Seriously, has anyone here NOT seen 1-dimensional boxers in MMA before?






    Boxers like Tyson Fury would also get destroyed in kickboxing:

    Would he be favourite agains a UFC top 10 heavyweight? No
    Would he most likely get taken down and submitted? Yes
    Would he get destroyed? Most definintely not.

    It only takes one good punch before the MMA fighter can't shoot properly anymore, and Fury is a huge dude. Also could actually use a perfect guillotine with his long arms.

    I saw your unedited post pulling the race card with the bs "you don't like white fighters." WTF does this have anything to do with race?

    MMA fighters practice boxing, the only pre-requisite needed to box. Boxers do not practice wrestling, jujitsu, kicking or a plethora of other disciplines that go into this sport, so no....you are pretty wrong.

    And any MMA fighters who fought him in a boxing ring would be easily destroyed. What's your point? They're different sports. It's no different than saying Ronaldo would get destroyed in the NFL. That's how retarded you sound.

    Guys like Brendan Schaub and Travis Browne, who failed to cut it in their prefered sports, can take up MMA in their mid twenties with no previous combat sport experience and do well in the UFC heavyweight division within a very short space of time.

    MMA, especially for big guys, is still a niche sport made up of mostly sub-par athletes and a very shallow talent pool.

    So would Tyson Fury as he is now beat guys like Stipe and DC? No.

    But would he needs years of crosstraining to become a force in the UFC heavyweight division? No.

    You won't see many MMA fans (other than some Conor fans) claiming MMA fighters would beat boxers. That's the point.

    And not surprisingly, the same Conor fans are now saying that Tyson Fury would beat MMA fighters lol.

    Would not surprise me the slightest if he would be a champ in HW with one year of MMA training. HW is so bad.

    It's not all that different. You start a round standing up, just like in boxing. All of the MMA fighters train boxing. MMA and boxing is in the sphere of combat sports. There has been boxers and MMA fighters who have transitioned to boxing or MMA. It's not a completely different sport like soccer and MMA.

    Well so many fighters stand and brawl in MMA, so to have boxing at a point where your leaps and bounds better then most is huge. Fights start on the feet as well so. A guy with weak boxing who trains MMA would get knocked out real fast in boxing most of the time.
