I agree, Its not fair when you put a boxer who has fought on his feet all his carreer vs someone who can bumrush them and get them on the floor. In MMA you need to know at least 2 arts to be competitive and 3 to really make noise, striking/grappling/wrestling. Boxing is a great addition to an mma fighter but like Ndou said its just a small part of it.
