UFC striking is very under rated

Yeah' date=' the power of boxers is a bit over exaggerated.[/quote']

 

Maybe, but the technical prowess is not. James Toney has amazing upper body movement and hand speed and he would destroy Couture in a boxing match. Look at the head movement at 0:25 of that video. Toney even rocked stays completely elusive and out of the way of shots, even while not moving his feet. The average MMA fighter does not know how to do that.

 

Honestly this is a pretty ignorant thread, and this is why boxers talk **** about MMA. Striking is completely different when there is the chance of being taken down. James Toney would stand right in front of his opponents with his hands down in a boxing match. The only way you can do that in an MMA match is if you're a 10th degree BJJ black belt and your opponent is terrified of taking you to the ground.

 

Randy Couture would be just as clueless in a boxing ring as James Toney was in the cage.

That's why Randy didn't follow anybody around talking **** about boxing. Toney acted like an ****, and was made an example of.

No UFC fighters would die in the boxing ring. When your fighting with tiny 4 ounce gloves in a cage, its so easy to knock people out. It's almost like a bare fist. But once you throw on 1 pound boxing gloves, it becomes so much harder to knock people out. Boxers also have better flow, footwork, and combos. Truth is Boxers would beat the hell out of MMA fighters in a boxing match.

joe rogan and others even under estimate it..... i bet my life that most ufc fighters and even couture could of hung with james toney in boxing match

 

You sure are stupid. Why would you bet your life on something that is obviously wrong? And then you say that you can beat Toney in a boxing match. That's more retarded than Toney thinking he can beat Couture in an mma match because he at least has professional fighting experience. Couture said that it would be stupid for him to step into a boxing ring with Toney because he would probably get KO'd in the first round. If you take a wrestler vs a muay thai specialist in a wrestling match the wrestler is going to win. It's simple to understand really. You are just really stupid.

because it's so easy to get caught with a punch in MMA, and it only takes one punch to knock someone out no matter what weight class you are. One careless mistake and its all over. In boxing you really only see people get knocked out with 1 punch if they are heavyweights, if you watch pac-man or Mayweather fight you never see them knock a guy out cold with one punch.
