Default MMA Fighters

I cannot believe how easy these guys fold. I am huge MMA fan but they are poles apart in toughness and durability when it comes to top level boxers and boxers in general, the HW title fight was basically over with one punch and not exactly a devastating even though it hit him high. I'm not trolling, i'm just expressing a view.

Post up one of your fights brah.

It's glove size. The easiest wat to explain it is have a 10 stone woman stand on you with flat shoes and then again with high heels. As the boxing glove has more surface area their is less area of precise impact. Not less power but less force per cm2.

Simple physics.

Now post up your fights...

oh your one of these posters that can suck themselves off as well yeah, im surprised i havent seen you on the training forum

since you fought at high levels in both sports you should know that there are loads of different factors that lead to quicker ko's in mma, yet you seem to think its durability, that is one factor but there are at least another 10 if not more, show us a video of one of your boxing or mma fights then junior

I think the biggest difference aren`t even the gloves. In a boxing match Cain would have got back up, but if you get knocked down in a mma match there`s a big chance that it`s over

A bit like this... i know this shot was a lot more devastating than the powderpuff shots Cain took on the floor but you see where I'm coming from

Kongo would KO any heavyweight boxer, bring them over to UFC and lets see how tough they are, they would get smashed by Kongo quickly

Same thing happens in boxing from time to time. Sometimes we see a shot that lands and it may appear ineffective to us but it actually does a lot of damage. Take for example the fight between Sergio Martinez and Darren Barker. Sergio landed a KO punch that actually appear to be blocked.

Cain did not fold. He has a history of showing a ton of heart. He's beaten up guys who are a lot bigger than him. You can't always expect a HW fight to go the distance. One kick or punch can end the fight at any moment.

Playing Xbox whilst stoned is not "relatively high levels".
