    Don't fight that mofo, Bob. He'll make you part of his freakshow, one way or another. He needs another class of help than what you can offer him.

    UFC Poses No Risk to Boxing, Dan Horgan


    and

    UFC Poses No Long Term Threat to Boxing: Round Two

    Last summer, I wrote an article entitled UFC Poses No Long Term Threat to Boxing, and the internet MMA community went into an uproar. In the article, I stated the copious reasons why the UFC would eventually die out, and I ended up looking like an ignorant jerk.

    When writing the article, I made one regrettable mistake: failing to realize the abundant fans that watch both boxing and mixed martial arts. I wrote the article in a way that I thought boxing fans -- and boxing fans alone -- would understand: I took the biggest organization in MMA (the UFC) and referred to the sport as a whole as that organization. When the three hundred plus emails streamed into my inbox from angry MMA fans, nearly all of them stated that I was unaware of the other mixed martial arts leagues, and that I was simply scared that their sport would overtake boxing. These people were dead wrong.
    Oscar De La Hoya

    In my many debates following the article, everyone -- including radio show hosts, Dog Pound posters, and even some of my closest friends -- took the same stance of those angry emailers. Perhaps in an attempt to disguise their own lack of argument, they used my age (at the time, sixteen) against me, and made it seem as if I did zero research before writing the article. I was a fodder of sorts for them...

    I guess I'm confused how a boxing fan/commentator can be against head strikes, in general.

    For clarity purposes, I was 16 when I wrote those articles, and I knew absolutely nothing about MMA at that time. You can bash me for anything I say now, including the fact that I think MMA fighters are suckers for eye/ear gouging on the street. But don't hold me to blogs I wrote when I was 16 years old.

    Because they'll automatically use mma rules, in a self defense encounter?

    Training that ways gives a lot of them a false sense of security.

    How does one eye/ear gouge their way out of a leglock? What happens when the shortcuts aren't enough, and the well runs dry?

    Does that mean boxers are even bigger suckers for it, because punching (but not kicking, kneeing, or tackling) things gives them a false sense of security?

    Are you suggesting that not training, is better than training, because of this?

    There's a good reason why people train/compete in combat sports...they are pressure tested, and proven to work.

    Definitely not effective 100% of the time (like anything), but I've found easy access to MMA fighters' faces, especially when they're coming in for takedowns or when I'm in guard.
