That said - this rivalry between MMA/UFc and boxing is purely fictitious and is wholly a fabrication of boxing fans that feel threatened by the emergence of a new fighting sport.

I am a boxing fan as well as a fan of mixed martial arts. It is OK to enjoy both.

EliteXC was a poorly managed company that probably commited felonies in their last show, MMA as a whole, and the UFC in particuarly, are still "taking over"

Not actually taking over, because both sports will always exist, its just that MMA is becoming mainstream, and hitting the right demographics.

another 10 from the vs network
about 50 from espn (counting both wednesday and friday night fights)
and ppv has about 12-18 a year
You really cant compare one company with 200 fighters to boxing who has thousands on top of thousands. Sure MMA isnt free very much but im ok with it I have no problem paying for a PPV that has 5 fights that im very much looking forward to instead of paying 10 dollars more usually to see one fight that winds up sucking most of the time.

In the US the UFC made more money than boxing ALL ON ITS OWN in 2006.

You act like MMA died with the folding of EliteXC/Pro Elite.

taking over is a strong statement, i believe the ufc is great but is not big enough to take over a whole sport, saying that if there were some more folk like dana white in boxing then maybe things would be better, whatever white does he should keep on doing it

it would be hilarious if dana signed kimbo but my hopes are high

Negatory. WEC on Versus is always welcome in my home and the homes of many other MMA fans.

Cool Re: I Thought Mma Was Taking Over

to me it seems if ya watch one ya'd watch the other one...,


ya think baseball fans were saying this kinda shit when football was comin into its own during the '50's?

come on guys there is room for both..,boxing has had a resugence lately with the best fighting the best..,

while UFC has had a slight drop with its a few of its big stars doppin off..,

no worries if 2 guys are fightin on the box im watchin what else the **** im gonna watch?richard dawson aint on the fued no more so **** it!
