    Art Jimmerson Vs Royce Gracie in UFC 1.

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=qSiE9Ed8jW4

    Fight aforemention taken from the Boxing Vs K-1 event.

    Genki Sudo Vs Butterbean


    Some boxers have done well in K-1, but even they had to adapt and thats just to Kickboxing.

    It's all about the rules. Fighters who train for a specific ruleset will of course fight best in thier ruleset. If you put Tyson in a TKD match chances are he's gonna lose, (or get DQ'd) Like wise if you put a A heavyweight TKD champ in the ring with Tyson the TKDer will lose. MMA fighters have found the best way to fight within the ruleset.

    Because of money we haven't seen an elite boxer in MMA yet, however I think we will in the next 5 years.

    James Toni was making some talk about it. The funny thing is that with Toni I think he would get subbed pretty quick, however with his thick body, wide base and lower centre of gravity, he is someone I could see picking up a good sprawl. And if he did watch out.

    Tony is over the hill. He wouldn't be a good choice to make that leap. I do think that the Boxers that come from a background of street fighting would fair well.

    Actually "street fighters" typical utter lack of technique, and most importantly, strategy, tends to put them on the losing side of things.

    The money is why I think we will see an MMA guy take a shot at a title if given the chance.

    Nog has spent a lot of time with his national boxing team and it shows. I'm not saying some MMA fighters couldn't have been good boxers if they would have spent their time training for that instead of MMA. The fact is that they didn't and in a pure boxing match against elite boxers they would be murdered. Maybe if they stopped training MMA and focused all of their attention on boxing they would fare better, but I think there is still a major problem with this. I may get flamed for this, but the better athletes are in boxing because that's where the money is. I think this will eventually change, but as of right now it is a fact, at least for the most part. Usually if you see an explosive (athletic) guy in an MMA event he will fare pretty well, compared to the less athletic guy with more skill, due to his athleticism.

    ED. I type too slowly. A lot of this has been said.

    Money plays a factor in training.

    A boxer only has to train in boxing, an MMA fighters has top train in boxing, kick boxing (muay thai) sub grappling and wrestling.

    It's stillr rare to find quality gyns that have all of that.
