    MMA is simply an easier sport to follow, less weight classes, one belt, and one promoter. Most of the time the cards are stacked with 5-10 good fights with a lot of finishes on early prelims. This basically explains the casual-friendly style of the sport.

    Do I agree with them though? Nope.

    MMGay types are obsessed with boxing and always have been. They have something to say about the sport even though boxing does not care about them. The only reason boxing talks about MMA is because MMA started the feud. If MMA never started the feud with boxing, boxing fans would not pay attention to MMA at all.

    I just don't like him. Can't listen to him, it's annoying. He is acting like he knows it all, and he is beyond biased, and lying through his teeth for breathing. And he trashing traditional Martial Arts and other sports, to hype MMA, which is something i can't stand.

    An MMA dude saying boxers "hug" is laughable. You can actually have an MMA career and be considered a "legend" for preventing all strikes and "hugging" lol

    You were talking about clinching in boxing compared to MMA fights however there are many black BJJ practitioners in the UFC that you do not want to hug as they would destroy you.

    Saying boxers "HUG" is laughable when you can win in MMA by hugging.

    Yes it's a skill (BJJ etc) BUT to the casual observer it's very boring to watch 2 guys engage in a highly technical grappling contest with each guy making minute adjustments and vying for position over 3-5 rounds. Point being, in boxing it's professional gloved fist fighting. Sadly yes some fights get bogged down with clinching. But a feature of MMA is at times a highly technical version of clinching. This is overly simplistic but the point remains.
