Rumor has it that he will be getting beat up by Barao soon, if Barao opts to defend his interim title.

McDonald is good, but he struggled with little Chris Cariaso's striking. Think Barao will eat him alive.

Actually, I think it will be competitive, but Barao will win.

I know you like to troll this point, but I will still respond.

That is not going to happen at the same rate it would with a pure striking art. For example, in boxing your choices are to get punched and quit, get ko'd, or win a decision. There are no contests, draws, and disqualifications; but those don't really change the skill set. In a certain way, you are limited by how well you can take a strike. The same limit holds true in mma, but unlike boxing, in mma there are more ways to avoid taking a strike. Boxing's best fighters have iron chins when compared to the rest of the population. I would bet that world class boxers that are considered "weak chinned" have vastly superior punch resistance to the average person. I will never make the argument that all top mma fighters have equal chins to top notch boxers.

That is some quality chin talk.

This. In Asia and Brazil BJJ/MT does seem to be the way and blue collar wrestler/puncher combos in the U.S.

A generalisation, but one I like. Good work

If they did then they wouldn't have time for the rest. MMA guys will always have specialists but if anything guys are only going to get more well-rounded. That doesn't mean they'll be better at everything but only that you won't see guys with truly glaring holes in their game on the big stage and they will be better at blending the different facets of the game.

One thing is certain; the next decade is going to be very interesting.
i dont know a much about standard mauy thai training...but i will tell you that most boxers work out twice a day most days....they do a morning run..usually pretty hard...and than a late afternoon boxing workout..and sometimes late day/evening strength training. a MMA fighter could every well work out twice a day....it would be tough with school..but it could be done..and plenty of parents could push the kids to do that....or...even a single 3 1/2 hour workout in the evening could get you close. Honestly I still believe the reason why many mma fighters have poor looking stand up is because they are guys who come from wrestling and tend not to do much boxing/striking. I think it also tends to tighten you up if your not also training for strikes. Eventually you are going to see kids coming in who have grown up doing both. The only problem may be if the kids are too good at boxing..because than they wll just go into boxing..unless the pay in mma starts to equal out with boxing.
