Default David Haye eventually in MMA?

I have been hearing rumblings quite a lot lately about David Haye making an entrance into the world of MMA once his boxing is done, in perhaps a year or two years time. I was just wondering how you think he will get on. Because for one, he has undeniable hand speed and accuracy with an extreme punch that can KO boxing’s heavyweights. He said himself he enjoys the sport and is taking it serious at the moment:

"I've already got grounding in the sport and have been working on the foundations for around six years now. The kicking side of things comes fairly naturally to me as I did kickboxing before boxing."

So at his height and his weight at the current time which he may but anyway – 98.9 KG ( 217 ibs) he could be a tricky opponent for some of the smaller guys in the heavy division, or the bigger guys like Velázquez, Mir and Carwin as perhaps they would never have seen his speed and movement before. Heck, he was a cruiser weight, so if he could cut down to 205 then I think he would smash most of the light heavies at the moment but who knows, he may be a Ray Mercer but I think Haye would take it a lot more serious than Ray who lets face it had done no homework on Kimbo and got submitted by a man with very elementary jiu jitsu – but all due respect to Kimbo who is a handful I think David Haye would walk through him.

It is open for debate, who knows he may decide just being the heavyweight boxing champion of the world is enough, but I think the lure for an athlete of his calibre to join a thriving organisation and continue his career will prove too much to resist and I predict inside three years David Haye will face off in the UFC (I hope) and make a push for the belt. But only if he learns the jiu jitsu side of the game and is not out of his depth when the fight goes there with the likes of Nougeira who will inevitably do anything to get it off its feet.

Yes he'd do well in MMA, i heard he actually trains with former Cage Rage star James Zikic. Haye trains grappling with pro MMA fighters. If he learns the wrestling game, he'd be the first man to ever be a champ in boxing and MMA.

I don't think it'll happen.

Right now he can make more money in boxing than in MMA. I can't see that changing anytime soon.

I don't think any boxer would be able to make the transition without years of dedication and training. With all/almost all of his time currently focused on boxing, and with no background in any other combat sport, I seriously doubt Haye will ever be a top level MMA fighter.

This is classic mythology.

Never mind the fact that you have Olympians and Olympic medalists in judo and wrestling competing in MMA.

And in case you weren't aware, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is a Brazilian MMA fighter who is renowned for being one of the best Jiu Jitsu stylist in the sport. It so happens that he is also a 2007 South American boxing champ., and a bronze medalist in the Pan-Ams, losing only to the Cuban.

Muhammad Lawal (King Mo), Tyrone Woodley and John Jones are all tremendous athletes among current up and comers. Older stalwarts like Dan Henderson, not to mention George St. Pierre, are incredible athletes as well.

You're a moron. Now I'll just be on my way.

On a side note, it is true that ***** ***** Gayweather has the worst fans in boxing. You are a sparkling example my friend.

please see below.

BTW, it'll do you well if you didn't mention "Mayweather" and "weight cutting" in the same paragraph.

Now go play with your McDojo friends.

MMA fans really are delusional.They think that other famous and successful athletes are actually interested in pursuing a career in that sport.


David Haye has no interest in lowering himself into such a career and is on his way to make alot of money in boxing.

The only boxers interested in MMA are the old,shot and out of shape(and even they can knock out former MMA champions lol)

Stupid and Wrong.Anronio Rodrigo Nogueira has never competed in any form of competitive boxing.

Please don't follow the MMA fan stereotype.Even if you are homophobic,you have no right to express such views on a forum such as this.


Try acting your age also.Mayweather obviously touched a nerve with your kind.
