CHEW ON THOSE NUMBERS!
also another funny thing. i went about my college and asked how many students could name a couple boxers. outside of a handful of my buddies that could maybe name 4-5, the answer I generally got was MIKE TYSON! ahah when's the last time Tyson put them on and WON. I know he lost to that Irish dude a couple years ago but other then that NOTHING. Funny that a fighter most likely looked down upon by boxing fans is oddly still one of your most popular fighters!
and for your information Tito, boxing was one of my first loves in life. boxing and hockey, the only two sports i played as a kid. boxing was more for personally fitness as I still taking boxing lessons daily with the opportunity to turn ammeter(mind you i too pretty to fight LOL JOKES). Boxing grew old, the same old thing over and over again, where as to MMA had that new aspect to it, kicks and the take down.
It sadden me the day I stopped following the WWE, but I knew it was time to move onto something new aka boxing, but truthfully i wasn't the least bit heartbroken to stop following boxing, mma just had it all!
I find it kinda funny too that you have the name of a HUGE MMA star!
also is no long 10 out of 10 for a boxer to beat an MMA fighter standing! i take it back, KJ NOONS a boxer got knocked out but a street fighter in a fight that was STANDING the entire time!

I guess my girl and kid would think im gay too!
secondly Canadian's are far better athletes then you american's! your population DOMINATES ours yet who won the Olympics? CANADA! its not the amount of medals u win, its the amount of times you win gold which we OWNED!!! you talked shit about hockey and what happened, GOLD FOR CANADA!
Have you ever been to Canada? Seems like you've maybe viewed Nunavit on MAP. If you woke up one day in Canada, you'd have no idea! Well other then the fact we're much politer and half the world doesn't hate us! Yes i can say that because I've been to the states, the majority of my family lives there and when they visit Canada they never wanna leave, the people here are just that much nicer. now don't get me wrong, America has tons of great people living there you just don't happen to be one. Go watch your nascar you arrogant fuck.
clearly your too biased to have an argument. take a look at the ppv numbers, the ufc is picking boxing off slowly but surely.
In a FIGHT the top 30 MMA fighters would TOOL the top 30 boxers. Seriously does the sport of boxing still even have a top 30, I thought everyone left for MMA.
Looks like Brock beat your boy Floyd?
