    I know, i know, "MMA boxing sucks" or "They can't box 4 sh*te." bla, bla, bla.
    But seriously, when an MMA fighter that can box, it's just so entertaining to watch.

    Yeah well, when you have two unskilled people wailing at each other, its going to be fun to watch versus two guys that actually know defense, angles minimizing damage etc. This is a trash thread...

    To be fair, the co-main event had one of the best boxing I've ever seen in any MMA fight. They also both went for the kill.

    The problem is you dont see too much of that.

    I enjoy both sports but to me Boxing is my true Love.

    2017 Boxing is shaping up to be a Solid year. We just need consistent Top Quality fights, the casuals will return.

    Thank you for that

    Rogan and White, to this day say Griffin-Bonner is the most important MMA fight of all time because of the entertainment it brought

    All I saw was two guys who couldnt kickbox gas out in 1 round and it was nothing but a toughman fight from there on

    Cody has solid boxing
    Kelvin Gastelum is a great boxer
    Conor ofc

    Even Nunes threw her punches well against Ronda. She didn't over-extend and crowd her work like she used to in the past.

    Eventually, MMA striking will catch up.

    Far fewer strikes get thrown per minute in MMA per average, with much worse skill. How could that possibly be more entertaining?

    It's entertaining to watch because they're probably shitting all over the rest of the division with its scrub-league striking which in turn makes them look like supermen.

    Hey, like i said, an MMA fighter that can box. i had never said that MMA boxing > Boxing. I also love the MMA gloves, small and fast, make the fight looks almost like a street fight!
    Oh and boxing is riggered. I am serious, Sergey shoulda won that match. Love the US, but the American clearly favored Andre Ward.
