    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    When Leonidas said "MAs out of Asia", I think he meant "MAs from outside of Asia", such as Krav Maga and Capoeira.

    the longest boxing match was 110 rounds. Ive been trying to find out more on the subject of early brittish and american pugilism. But from what I have read It looks like early MMA. I dont care what people say boxing is a martial art specialy pre queensbury rules boxing.
    There was actually a Channel 4 documentary on the subject. You can read about it here.

    We could have the arguement about whether or not Polynesia counts as Asia. If, you know, anyone wants to.
