While I kind of agree with him, I feel it makes the sport of boxing seems insecure when one of our biggest promoters has to diss MMA in such a fashion.
The sad thing is when anyone that has some notability in boxing talks about the mma it helps the mma because they get more attention. The mma fans will argue dibella is denouncing the mma because he's afraid of its popularity, and the casual boxing fans might be turned off by a major promoter *****ing about a different sport. I think the best thing lou could have done is say I dont watch it lets focus on the upcoming attractions in boxing.
