    I feel boxders generally punch harder than MMA fighters, would an elite boxers power be too much for any elite MMA fighter in a striking only match either with boxing or MMA gloves? Could any MMA fighter have the punch resistance to last the distance in a boxing match with an elite hard punching boxer?

    Miller is not an elite boxer and nor is he known for much power, AJ punches far harder and would have beat him easily and knocked this MMA fighter out with his eyes close, Miller`s a joke.

    I guess I could post threads where MMA guys absolutely beat the ****snot out of each other and keep on ticking, but some guys will say that they can only do that because they don't punch hard :rolleyes:
