I hate to say this but it's stealing from our sport (MMA)

    I Cleary indicated that MMA is stealing from the sport of boxing ! Imagine how many pugilists would be around if there was no such thing as MMA, just food for thought, like the saying: where are all the good hws from America? Answer, they're all posted up in the paint or on the grid iron...just imagine if all those BJJ players especially from Brazil, the Gracie's were boxers lol? It's either that or a karate, judo, fencing, arnes player, you get what I mean?

    Well, that's martial arts, boxing isn't exactly the only martial art, I'd say American Football is a better example for American heavyweight talents not boxing

    Most MMA fighters start off with a marrtial arts background, they don`t start off in martial arts like BJJ or kickboxing intending to fight in the MMA, very few boxers switch to MMA and most MMA fighters have poor boxing skills.

    You wouldn`t get many American football players lasting long against a top 10 boxer.
