    Don't listen to everyone who is telling you that most of what you learn in boxing can be applied to MMA. When you switch to MMA, you're supposed to do a somersault after each successful hook landed and, when hit, emit a high frequency cry that can only be heard by local wildlife. It is the law of the forest.

    Lots of people start a rhythm when they flick out the jab. This makes you extremely easy to double leg off of your timed jab. You can get around this by having a STIFF jab not a flicking jab and by making sure you vary your timing. See GSP v Koscheck

    Strictly speaking, boxing is a sport -- not a style. As long as you compete within the ruleset, you can do whatever you want. Hell, Willie Pep once won a round without throwing a single punch.

    There's no specific style of boxing, and there's no surefire winning technique. A winning boxer is simply someone who's found a method that works for him.

    If you're worried about boxing techniques that will affect your MMA, simply don't train those techniques -- find other ones. For example, as another poster pointed out, use a stiff jab instead of a flicking jab. They both work in boxing -- so why not use the technique that works in both boxing and MMA?

    This you're going to have to elaborate upon further.

    On July 25th, 1945, Willie Pep faced top 10 fighter Jackie Graves. Willie Pep won Round 3 on all judge's scorecards having never thrown a punch. Link.

    Whew. When I saw 'don't circle and jab' I thought he was saying don't stick and move. Thanks for the clarification.

    Which one are you referring to, UFC 74 or UFC 124?

    flicking while moving is fine on occasion when you only have one-half a body to worry about.
    many top level boxers have made a career out of this, but eating a slap to land a takedown is a fair trade.
