Boxing is named the 'gentleman's sport', simply as it allows upright, bipedal human combat, but with rules to ensure the combatants arent hurt too much, and some semblance of respect and care is written into the rules. The combatants compete on their feet, never grovel like animals. Humans are bipedal, walk upright, and boxing reflects our human difference to the animal world in tis style of combat. As does SUMO and Thai kickboxing. UFC prides itself on its combination of sports; Boxing, wrestling, martial arts. 'Anything goes'. But it doesnt does it.. not really. Cant headbutt, can kick on the ground, etc, etc. Its not a true 'no holds barred' sport like its fans claim. While yes, combatants do keep assaulting each other when someone is Knocked down or even knocked out. Often fighters will continue to smash unconscious fighters. Pure inhumane brutality. A disgusting spectacle. No punishment for the fighters that do it. Should attract court cases. So while UFC 'prides' itself on its no holds form of combat, it really isnt unrestricted, as they rightly claim; it would lead to injury.... YET they allow unconscious fighters to get assaulted while totally unconscious! The assault is never mentioned or condemned in the commentary, fans cheer it, and the fighters continue to celebrate it! Thats why Boxing and the Heavyweight boxing champ of the world will always be better known, and more respected than some anonymous UFC champ. Simply because boxing conducts itself inside the ring with a higher form of humanity; on their feet, rules, care for the combatants. Not grovelling on the ground like dogs, and assaulting unconscious fighters. How many boxing matches are there in the world per year? How many UFC type fights are there? Obviously there are hundreds, if not thousands of times more of amatuer and pro boxing fights in the world than UFC per year. Just 1 UFC death would equate to hundreds if not thousands of UFC deaths if there were just as many UFC fights as boxing.
