Now if we were to talk about just boxing then for sure you'd be correcting me left and right. I'm not a boxing expert. Novice at best.
I actually follow both Boxing and Mma, as I took Tae Kwon Do from age 8 to 13. Then I started wrestling in middle school all the way through high school.. Even with me knowing both of these, I don't consider myself a MMArtist.. Of course I haven't competed in about 10 years..
You are just going strictly by definition and I am going by actual in depth training of a discipline as a whole..
Never the less, nice debate..
