Fun shots. I hate head gear, both earing and shooting subjects with it.

Good shots.

Also commenting on what you said, that's a bad statement. MMA fighters bring in pure boxers to help train them on striking; a pure boxer would destroy a MMA fighter in strikes alone; losing ofcourse when it came to brazilian juijitsu (and possibly Muy Thai, but that focus is close range, a boxer would have a reach advantage).

That's a poor statement in its self. Boxing is close range striking and is limited to punches. Legs have a much greater reach, speed and power than arms do. I have seen many boxers get their butts handed to them making the same claims not only against Muai Thai guys, but also against American Kickboxers and even a few Tae Kwon Do guys. I did see a boxer knock out a Capoeira guy with a single punch one time. That was amusing to watch.

The Boxing vs. MMA argument was only revived recently and was largely a media creation created by a disgruntled few in the boxing industry because of the numbers the UFC was drawing. I know plenty of boxers and MMA fighters (as well as kickboxers), and they have nothing to argue about; they respect what one another do. They may not always agree on which sport is "better" or who has superior athletes, but there's no animosity between them.

I actually have seen these arguments continually for the past 25+ years. There has always been competition between styles. Having said that boxing is usually one of the few not involved in those discussions as often since it normally isn't associated with the martial arts even if it is one.

Well, by extention, it's been much longer than that- the "style vs style" issue. I was referring to boxing vs MMA in particular.

As UFC made a buzz at it's inception, faded almost into obscurity after the first few events, and exploded into the mainstream with the advent of TUF, which is in my opinion where the MMA v boxing debates began being discussed openly by the media- because MMA is surging in popularity. These conversations weren't commonplace 10 years ago; MMA wasn't even on boxing's radar. Hell, most people that even knew what the UFC was were talking about freakshow matchups they'd seen once or twice on VHS, not the new breed of well rounded athlete we see today on tv 2 or 3 times a week.

Oh yeah from that perspective absolutely. It's all good though. I find boxing too one dimensional to watch. I don't mind boxing occasionally myself as a part of whatever I'm working on at the time, but I have found watching most bouts kind of dull. Shrink the gloves down to the size of the MMA sparring glove ('fingerless') and the fights would start getting more interesting.

Thanks guys.

I see some of you here are relatively new. You may appreciate what I can do with longer rounds and no headgear:

The Kelvin Price vs. Julius Long hit in the chest is amazing, ouch!
