I think Nunes has more boxing skill than Holloway, but how good are Max`s boxing skills out of 10?
Max would box her ears
I meant in terms of fundamentals, Max is too powerful for a female fighter.
Females are not better than men.
Maybe, but they can have better fundamentals, Nunes is one of the most skilled UFC fighters in history and her boxing skills are very good.
He's a volume guy. He's not the best boxer. I think prime Conor had good boxing. He did dumb **** vs Floyd because he wanted to score points. Floyd is too slippery and too good a boxer so I don't really care about that fight. But his striking in MMA is pretty refined to me.
Conor`s striking is certainly more refined than Max`s and his body mechanics are better.
I've stepped away from combat sports recently. I may've missed out on some new people.
Pure boxing... Big Nog has always been one of my favorites.
Stop it. Her skills are good for female standards.
Said Nurmagomedov, Raoni Barcelos, Umar Nurmagomedov, Rustam Kerimov are not well known bantamweights with far more skill and better boxing than her
Lucia Rijker was a far better striker than Amanda and arguably any female ever and she got KTFO against a journeyman bum (no disrespect to the man) who she even had a little size on. Her skills were mediocre here too. Amanda would look far worse.
You have to be on crack if even ignoring biological superiorty, you think Amandas "skills" are even sniffing the jockstrap of fighters and geuine alltime talents like TJ Dillashaw, Dominick Cruz, Petr Yan, Henry Cejudo etc
Nog has gotten mad underrated in recent years. Still easily the 2nd best HW ever behind Fedor. His boxing was really underrated too. One of the best jabs at HW and he built some nice combos off them. His defense is better than its given credit for since ppl only remember the geriatric zombie Nog with more surgeries than a Kardashian in his UFC incarnation and he still was dropping guys like Schaub (was 8-1 beat Gonzaga more clean than Stipe, was robbed against Arlovski who while shot fought his way into a title eliminator against Stipe and shot Andrei was still used as a stepping stone for title shots and rankings for other current HWs), Couture
He really boxed Sergeis ears off and Sergei before the shoulder surgery was one of the best HWs Ive seen. He was NO joke. Sergei almost got on the Russian Olympic boxing team but got injured during semis too.
To be fair that just looked decent, pretty good head movement, but that stuff has been done many times before. He looked a bit like Naz Hamed.
lol, this chick was around before female MMA evolved look how successful a one trick pony like Rousey was years later because females in the UFC still hadn`t evolved enough, this chick did nothing in thee that I haven`t seen Nunes do, just basic fighting really.
Great vid to clear it up. She didn’t stand a chance, even with size and more experience she was hurt every time he connected. Wrecked with ease
