Default Re: Isn't it funny how most UFC fans don't like boxing, yet want to see more stand up

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
I think your generalising in terms of MMA fans, but in terms of the striking commentary I totally agree.
