Re: Isn't it funny how most UFC fans don't like boxing, yet want to see more stand up
One criticism I see from mma fans watching boxing is the perceived lack of urgency and action. A laxk of interest in the chess thats boxing, they see boxing can go 6 rounds of jabs before a gameplan starts and the gameplan might be shit to look at from a spectator. There is a lot more pressure to finish in mma and violence is what looks good apparently
Also the fans are force fed a lot if promotion boxing needs to learn from that.
I'd also say ufc commentary on striking is fairly average to poor. Much more bjj/wrestling focused
