    It definitely is, but the ground game can be entertaining too once you understand the basic concepts of it. Its slower paced than the stand up but much more technical and can actually be more physically draining.

    A real sport? Like where you have 4 or 5 champions at the same weight all refusing to fight each other, having a million pointless weightclasses with 4 or 5 ďchampionsĒ . Boxing is dying a slow death... once the AJ/Fury Canelo etc are into the sunset itís going to struggle big time unless big changes are made..

Some of their striking isn’t even that bad and makes me think they could do okay in boxing.

    I’ll always pick boxing over UFC though.

    I remember I couldn’t make a UFC gathering one night. It also happened to be the same night that Williams lost to Rosario last winter in an upset. It was a great match. I asked my one friend how the UFC card was. He said it sucked. I told him he should’ve watched boxing that night.
    Most people are not fans of anything.

    They following trends and whatever large groups of society are doing etc 'They don't know what they like, they get told what they like' The thread starter does not know what he likes, because he is a weasel 'People like this will chop and change, like the weather'.

    Plus as Bernard Hopkins once stated? We live in a microwavable age, the UFC is like sugar for all these weasels 'Their shot of sugar and Junk food'.

    I have no issue with Martial Arts, as I participated in it myself 'I just dislike the culture with surrounds mixed martial arts'.

It says a lot about where the two sports are at these days tbh.




    This is true and its why it makes me laugh when some people get annoyed if you say one does certain things better than the other. As though its an all or nothing situation and you can only watch one and must defend it blindly. You could think MMA is 10x better but still want to watch Fury, AJ, Loma, Canelo, GGG, Wilder, Spence, Crawford etc etc. I used to love K-1 back in the day too.

    Boxing has major flaws, but itís boxing all the way for me.

    Weíve had this conversation so many times in the past, but the fact remains that boxing is still here.

    Iíll sit down and watch UFC fights with friends idc, but I canít connect to the sport the way I connect to boxing. Boxing, to me, is much more accessible. I donít understand all the finer points of MMA, the different striking styles, or the grabbling styles, the rolling, thatís a foreign language to me. I also donít know any of the fighters names or anything about them.

    Look UFC is fun and its easy to watch and itís understandable that the matchmaking is better and thereís a reason for that. UFC is a league the way NFL is a league. Boxing doesnít have that. You have different promotional companies like Top Rank, PBC, Golden Boy being the big ones and their biggest stars donít fight each other because they donít want to split profits.

    If boxing was dead, you wouldnít have McGregor putting on boxing gloves.

    And for those who say boxing is boring, I just tell them to put on Zepeda vs Baranchyk. To me, thatís much more exciting than any UFC fight.

    And I have friends who watch both boxing and UFC, so thereís no reason why someone could be a general ďcombat sportsĒ fan.
