Default Re: UFC fighter Dan Henderson would have been a brilliant boxer......Anyone else agre

Disagree.

Dan is an amazing MMA fighter, and his physical attributes mean he is a very effective boxer-for-MMA.

But, like the vast majority of good MMA-boxers, they lack the fluency, speed, and footwork to succeed in boxing.

Boxing-for-MMA is not the same as actual boxing.

And Dan has big power, but he doesn't have much by way of defence, and is over-reliant on the big right hand.

BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar could have been very good boxers, especially Penn.
