Sorry Nath. I hold it in the same regard as Spider. I'm sure its ok as a spectacle, but just dont know how it could have a future as a sport with the two sports its trying to hybridise going along fine. Combat 8 obviously have some money to throw around to attract a few fighters, but I otherwise see it as a distraction to those fighters serious about either boxing or MMA.
I liken it to that of mixed rules Aussie rules x Gaelic football that's played every year between the two countries. Might make for a good spectacle, but hardly has a future as yet another sport so similar to those its a combination of.
You are never going to settle the pub argument of who would win between an MMA star and boxing star because they're apple and oranges.
