Re: Best boxer vs best MMA
I believe people who have their base as strikers have a style disavantage in mma,they really need to get good at wrestling to fight standing even if they are good they are always at a treat of a takedown and that takes away from their striking,by the way most of my favourite guys are strikers,Igor Vovchanchyn,Mirko Filipovic and others.
Another point I saw brought here,actually Pride was dominated by grapplers,Igor Vovchanchyn(striker)Mark Kerr,
Mark Coleman who by the way used the knee a lot on the ground,Nogueira and then Fedor,then came the time of the "big three" Fedor,Nogueira and Mirko(striker).
Middle weight it was Sakuraba and then Wanderlei(striker).
