instead of UFC, you think with their insane punching power they could try boxing and get more money
Because they’d get KO’d
Why don’t table tennis players just play tennis
apples and oranges amigo
Boxing is much more about technique than power. These guys would get smoked in high level boxing, hence their careers in MMA
Alotta guys already in boxing hit that hard
Because the skill level in the stand up is significantly higher in boxing to the point where simply having power means close to nothing.
Because their power isn't anything special in boxing.
bigger gloves makes traditional defense a far more fundamental and effective skill, combined with not being worried about kicks = they will hit air.
I think their power wouldn’t translate with the bigger gloves and the blocking defense boxers use.
Does boxing really pay better? At the highest level it obviously does, but how about for the curtain-jerkers and fringe Top 15-talents?
You know... there’s a lot more to boxing than just hitting really hard...
Their power is still above average in boxing, but it wouldnt matter
Ngannou has shitty set-ups and bad technique, he would get absolutely nowhere.
I'd love to see engoonoo give it a try. I'm sure it would go well
I think there's only more money in boxing for a very select group of boxers at the highest level.
Most boxers probably get less money and more CTE.
Ngannou wanted to go into boxing first but was advised that it was a lot harder to break into the cliquish boxing world in France if you didn't have the right connections. I think he still intends to one day but really needs the cachet of having a belt first.
Rumble doesn't strike me as the guy who'd put in the effort to condition himself to be able to go 10 rounds.
And aren't we reeeeeeeally jumping the gun on Khaos to mention him in their company? Based on 2 UFC fights?
You guys are kidding yourself if you think Ngannou would struggle at boxing. Take a look at the records of the opponents that Deontay Wilder and Mike Tyson beat. Ngannou would smoke the majority of heavyweight boxers. The very top guys could be another story no question, but there just isn't a lot of competition globally in heavyweight boxing
Big punchers in mma are mediocre in boxing, didn’t you learn from the Conor fight?
Anyone can be KO’d with small mma gloves.
Also it’s way way more difficult to join the elite in boxing, there’s world championship contenders like gaethje who clearly don’t train much BJJ, if any at all.
lol... honestly, the guys who think they can can box in the ufc.
are below average boxers at best.
its two completely different sports.
the takedown threat changes everything about it.
Wilder would murder both
Deontay says "Sure why not"
