I love boxing and MMA both, but it drives me up a wall that so many boxing fans have a negative opinion of MMA because they know almost nothing about it.
The problem is. A lot of the mma people say stuff like "ufc is taking over boxing" etc. A lot of boxing fans feel threatened and have a negative outlook on mma.
