    Boxing guards are very often lower then what you see in muay thai and it's easier to move in on someone trying to kick you then it is on someone trying to punch you.

    Though that second part is mostly my opinion and experience more then anything. Your mileage may vary (especially if you're a horrible boxer with bad footwork)

    Native Thai boxers are also generally better at elbows than hooks and uppercuts, compared to their western counterparts.

    I don't know much about MT except the basics, can anyone tell me, in their training at least, what percentage of time or sparring is dedicated to hands? Also, I had read once (long ago, no source) that style differed greatly between fighters from Thailand and MT fighters from Europe or America.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    This is pretty accurate. Stylistically, western fighters are much more punchy.

    Someone already mentioned the point system, in America it's not unheard for punches to be worth as much as kicks, or not that much less. IMO that makes them much less attractive then they might otherwise be.

    Hit that on the head Anna. It is far easier to move in on somone and take a angle after countering a kick then a punch. In fact, this is something you can actualy take out of point sparring and apply to actual ring fighting.

    bwah you're right about the guards. i'm having a brain-wrong. i meant about the torso gap left without the knee guard.

    i generally agree with the kick countering but it depends heavily on the kicking style and the persons guard.

    Judoka are great at everything. They gave us our own Olympic sport to keep us from winning all of the others!

    Also if I leave a duck egg in my gi overnight it turns into solid gold.

    Boxers are good at boxing.

    Thai fighters suck at boxing.

    MMA fighters /really/ suck at boxing.

    Shockingly, when someone has to train boxing, kicks, grappling, clinchwork, and takedowns in the same amount of time someone else has to train boxing, kicks, and clinchwork, they're not going to be as good at boxing, kicks, and clinchwork. Further shockingly, when someone has to train boxing, kicks, and clinchwork in the same amount of time someone else has to train just boxing, they're not going to be as good at boxing.

    This ain't rocket surgery, folks.
