The things we do for $$$$
$50,000 is $50,000 I suppose.
MMA is a DIFFERENT GAME!!! Different sport with differnet rules, related in nature perhaps, but very different things none the less. A boxing match would have been more exciting, IMO. But hey, Kimbo actually looked as though he trained seriously and won the MMA fight. Who would have won the boxing match, I wonder?? Mercer looked shot regardless.
If you threw Kimbo in a boxing ring with Klitschko, Peter, Brewster, etc?? He's going to SLEEP
Conversely, those fighters may not fair so well in an MMA fight.
