    Fantastic...now Sport Karate's got some sort of claim to fame for beating MMA....

    I love the spin...how they induce that from an isolated event that this must be true for all cases...awesome...

    Are they allowing takedowns and submisions?

    Hmmm...not sure...but I'm gb/c Battle of Atlanta is one of those NASKA promoted events that glorify XMA....it's probably "American style kickboxing"...

    "we look to being a serious part of the future for sophisticated fight fans. We are focused on being the PGA, not the WWE, of the martial arts."

    Is that a sly side swipe at MMA?

    This settles it for me! Out goes the punching bag. No more contact sparring. No more rolling on the mat. Back to pulling kicks and screaming with mouth open and bowing after pulling punch 3 inches from the face. What was I thinking by doing MMA.

    Highly doubtful. It's one of those things, the fact is, if they put a MMA fighter into a boxing match with a professional boxer, the MMA fighter will probably lose. Their websit doesn't have any information on the rules used for this fight. I would guess some sort of half/full contact karate/kickboxing rules. This shows how bad things must be for karate if they are posting this crap on their results website. They also talk a great deal about getting MMA strikers together with other kickboxers to see who is the best. Lets keep in mind that MMA striking is a lot different then striking in other sports but I'm sure they could care less about that. I'm sure that very same fighter probably wouldn't want to meet his oposition in a MMA cage/ring.

    This wasn't a MMA event. It was a Am Kickboxing one. It was supposedly to show that point fighters can out strike MMAers BUT they took guys will mainly GRAPPLING background and then forbid any grappling. Now it it was someone like Silva, Ludwig, Liddell, etc guys with primarily striking backgrounds I think thigs would be different.

    Junior's MMA record:

    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/f...ighterID=10380

    Judging from the information on his record, it appears as if hes certainly a grappler. But what are the rulesets and what exactly are you fighting for? (i.e. points or a ko). I dont know how good this guys striking is, but I'm willing to bet that if you put Royce Gracie in that tournament he'll probably lose too.

    It would be interesting to see what the rules were- if knees or elbows are allowed, if kicks below the waist are allowed, punches to the face, etc.

    Would you care to enlighten those of us that dont know those rules Anna?
