mma has a middle class. in boxing you either have a day job or you're a millionaire. mma guys also get sponsorships through the UFC, health insurance, paid to train, etc. lots of guys in that 50-100+ grand a year range.

top guys don't earn nearly what boxers do, but you also ahve guys in MMA with 5-10 fights in the UFC while most boxers with 5-10 fights who didn't fight in the olympics are driving a bread truck during the week.



why are women's MMA fighters more popular than female boxers? other than marketing.

Other than marketing when it comes to females do you think sex appeal has anything to do with it?

The best of them train very hard and they are usually more fun to watch fight for me anyway. When I watch MMA and a women's fight comes on I watch it. They put on some good fights with lots of KOs. When I am watching boxing which is my main favorite sport and a women's fight comes on I usually do something else and come back when it's over and the men's boxing is on again. Most of them have not power with boxing gloves on. The best woman, Shields has only 2 KOs in 10 fights and I don't like her so I don't watch her.

why are women's MMA fighters more popular than female boxers? other than marketing.
I think it's basically because females are not naturally built for stand up fist fighting. They have small hands and comparatively weak upper bodies, which is why KOs and KDs are quite rare in women's boxing.

But they are naturally built for wrestling and fighting on the ground ... low centre of gravity, long legs in comparison to torso length and supple "bendy" joints.

Female boxing looks much the same as male boxing, but less dynamic and exciting. Female MMA looks different from male MMA because there is more emphasis and ground fighting/submission moves and less emphasis on going for KOs via stand up striking.

The way the sport is marketed and presented highlights the gender difference and the sexuality of the female fighters, all the way through to the outfits they wear for the fights.

Boxing, on the other hand, is more PC and tries to pretend that gender differences don't exist.

There is also the sexual titillation angle. Athletic women punching each other in the head with big gloves is not particularly sexy to watch. But there is something inherently erotic about athletic women in skimpy outfits wrestling for a submission on the ground.

The MMA women look better than the boxing women, though that's not saying much.

mma women = wannabe models, beach bums, etc.

boxer women = man-like features, thugs, etc.
