Block is harder with small gloves. Dodging, especially weaving throws you off balance to defend shots.
No one ever says that MMA's boxing is better then boxers boxing. Sprinters will ALWAYS outrun football players.
Yes, you will definitely see less boxing skill in MMA than in boxing. Thats a given. But hardcore boxing fans always tend to overlook the fact that there is kicking, takedowns, and many other factors that play into a roll of stand up technique. And it may appear to them a lot worse than it is.
