Anderson Silva is the truth,he was once a pro boxer in his younger days but that man can just straight up fight,there is no style he is uncomfortable with

Fine. I'm seventeen so there's your anecdotal evidence. I can be whatever I want on the internet.

I posted the statistics in this thread. They don't show too much of a significant difference. UFC is slightly ahead with the youth but it's not a great difference. Boxing is literally twice the size of the UFC in the US.

i knew this thread would come to an mma vs boxing argument but all i have to say is if you look at the recent ratings and ppv buys for boxing they have for sure been on the upswing and for mma it is quite the opposite since they signed the fox deal and im not saying this but i know ppl who follow mma and say that it has been on the slide since 2009 and if u want to talk about which sport is bigger globally it is Boxing by a country mile at the present bc it has been around so much longer but im not saying it will always be that way but i personally think it will imo. either way follow whatever u like i do not understand the comparisons but people are set on comparing them.

boxing is not that big with my friends although 3 of my friends follow it a bit more than casually but all i think is it is a good time to be a boxing fan with all the young fighters coming up saul alvarez, andre ward, nonito donaire, adrien broner, leo santa cruz, brandon rios, jose benavidez, deontay wilder and many more fighters i am excited about

I understand you're going off memory, but if your stats are reasonably accurate, boxing is more than twice as popular in the United States as UFC. However, based on the numbers, I disagree that the youth disparity isn't that great. For one, a 4.5 million person difference is significant when you're talking about relatively small numbers to begin with (12.5 million and 17 million). For another, 80% of a fanbase versus 25% is immense. Those numbers suggest that UFC is indeed a young person's sport.

Younger people, by and large, want to listen to the same music, wear the same clothes and watch the same sports as other young people. They influence each other far more than older people influence them. It's reasonable to infer that UFC will only continue to attract more young people than boxing.

It's a topic, that's all...no more or no less interesting than most of the other things discussed on this forum. Why do we compare fighters? lol

im not disagreeing with what you are saying but a big thing both of u are missing is different demographics and ethnicities in the young demographic i remember reading an article where it was about corona/tecate talking about how boxing was their number one platform for reaching hispanics from 18-34 and why they do so much promotion in the sport is bc so many of their customers are fans of it
