Says that possibly down the road he may make the transition.

As a Cotto fan, I'd really like to see it.

He has the heart, conditioning, and I think his style of boxing is well suited for a transition to MMA.

Plus the fact that he's training with Miguel Torres, he's probably already learning some facets of MMA.

Your thoughts?

it'd be intresting to see how Cotto does, if he gives mma a try


I still think Kermit Cintron would have the most success of any boxer in mma

Spends some time on takedowns and muay thai and he's definitely a threat to anyone...

yes he did before...dana white said mayweather should fight the lightwheight champ in ufc cuz mayweather said it takes no skill..mayweather laughed in his face then cintron said he'll take the fight but nothing ever happened..this was a few years ago also

I remember that, I'd like to see Kermit make the transition...

Wow, Cotto actually has the physical tools that would help in the UFC: power, strength and timing. Plus, contrary to Toney or Mayorga, he's still in good condition and respect MMA. He'd KO everybody at 155. I'd like to see a Cotto VS Bj.Penn.

it'd be a good move for cotto, the 155 lb division is perfect for him. he has a hard time cutting down from 185 to 147. i just hope he spends some time on wrestling takedowns and takedown defense, like kaps said. his boxing skills matched up with good wrestling would make a very dangerous fighter. cintron has the athleticism to be good in mma, he could pick up some of the other skills like muay thai and wrestling fast

I think Cotto will move onto MMA within the next 2 years when he's finished in boxing.. He is not what he used to be in boxing.. I think Cotto is going to lose to Yuri Foreman this summer and he might have a couple more fights then move onto MMA
