Box is so underrated fighting discipline...
Kills the myth that Boxers have no chance in MMA...
just boxers dont have much of a chance in mma........mercer goes for a double leg right after the punch...so he has not only trained boxing
if he were to go in there and have not trained any mma he would lose most of the time
tim sylvia is a dumba$$ tho....he is old and fat...and he tried to walk down a boxer when he could have stood back and threw kicks
To me it looked Sylvia was already going down but thats another argument.
And also I just want to point out that people vastly overestimated Ronda throughout this thread just because she knows judo and grapple. Even going as far to say she could stand a chance against Muhammad Ali. lol!
I don't think people have even watched her fights. Lets just forgot about the size difference, but again if you watch her fights you'll see that before she closes the distance she has a tendency to block punches with her face...She would automatically get ko'd.
Renzo Gracie once said you punch a black belt one, he turns into a brown belt
You punch them so more they turn to blue belts.
You have to train for a punch to really be ready.
This is a really good post.
@bboyyomama: I was referring to her twitter beef, when I said she would get her teeth broken.
Anyway, the fight starts standing up. Mayweather is probably the greatest stand up artist in the world. That being said, how is Ronda even gonna come close to getting him in a mere clinch, without getting blasted in the face by the best boxer in the world? Exactly.
That's the same thing I was saying.
MMA fighter vs boxer:
- Boxing Match - boxer should win with difficulty.
- MMA Match - MMA fighter should win with low difficulty.
The only real time we've seen it with a fighter in his prime was Muhammad Ali vs Antonio Inoki, in which very restrctive rules were placed on Inoki to make the fight fair (couldn't grapple, one knee had to be on the mat to kick, etc). Now, this is not to say Inoki would win handily, but due to a far more complete game Inoki had to be limited. And Inoki was just a Japanese wrestler by profession, not a full-on MMA fighter.
Most MMA fighters dapple in Muay Thai, because it increased your ability to take a hit so well. Ronda trains in Muay Thai, and has discussed her training regiment in interviews. She can take a hit a lot better than some seem to think, all MMA fighters can. However, given that MMA fighters have the ability to fight from multiple distances due to the use of legs, grappling, ground fighting, and punching, it's easier to avoid blows than in boxing.
As to who wins? Depends on the fight (boxing or MMA), rules, and conditions of victory.
Even Dana White agrees that an MMA fighter would lose badly in a boxing match against a skilled boxer and vice versa. I doubt there would be difficulty.
