Its MIXED Martial Arts... even the striking.
thats a very good analogy
Boxers/MMA fighter own within their own ring/cage. Two different aspects of fighting. Boxing you are able to throw and be stand more square without the worry of a takedown (the exception goes to an Austrailian boxer whose name I currently can't recall). MMA fighting allows itself to more open/unique stances and unique angles to throw punches (ex. Chuck Lidell). Much respect goes out to fighters on both sides.
hahahahahhahhahahhaahhahh @ your name. classic
bottom line of this thread is that joe frazier is old and ignorant that should not open his mouth on this subject. furthermore boxers cannot criticize mma fighters stand up game cuz they dont know shit about it. randy cotoure would own any boxer with ease cuz his style is strike strike takedown. so while the boxer is being fundamentally sound blocking or bobbing and weaving, 2 seconds later hes on his back getting bashed. than whats he gonna do?
Reminded myself of Happy Gilmore
