I saw another thread about 68 deaths v 2. The differnce is in that span there were many, many, many more boxing matches. Its not really even close. Another point, and the most important one is where the deaths take place. Unlike MMA, boxing is a lot more globalized. The majority of the deaths that occur in boxing occur in Asia were regulation is not strict at all. The last death in the US that I can remember was a few years ago with Lavander Johnson. Point is this arguement is really pointless. Given the large amount of matches that take place per year as compared to MMA. I dont see the point of MMA fans bring up that boxing is more brutal. Boxing has been around 100 years, there have been deaths that occured on PPV cards and National TV and for the most part has gotten a pass, for a reason. The reason is that most of the deaths recently have occured outside the U.S and for the most part, over that 100 plus years that boxing has been broadcast over tv's, radios or movie threaters there have only been a handful of deaths. I think with more exposure MMA gets, more people see that it looks a lot more violent than it actually is.
