    Boxers do this **** all day. All Anderson did was cut out the "duck and weave below waist level" stuff so he has time to evade/ parry any knees/ takedown attempts.

    And while amateur boxers do a couple of slips mixed in with punches, the greats can go beyond slipping punches to protect themselves, and actually using it to demoralize opponents. See below:



    YouTube - Muhammad Ali was hard to hit.
    You only really needed that one. That man had crazy balance.

    Actually, according to fightmetric he batted .520 on Forrest's head

    I'm not knocking Silva at all, but did Forrest just forget everything he ever learned about MMA? He flat-out looked like ****.

    There need to be more boxers who choose to crosstrain and compete in MMA. I'd love to see a champion-material boxer get a purple belt in BJJ and jump in and compete. How many current MMA fighters have backgrounds in boxing rather than jujutsu or wrestling or kickboxing?

    Background as in before they started MMA?

    ...not many. Less and less experienced MT fighters as well, but that's completely my unscientific anecdotal observation. I could be dead wrong.

    But not a whole lot of boxers. Next to no good professional boxers that said "I'm-a go fight in a cage!" anywhere near their prime that I can think of.

    Dosn't boxing pay better? If it does it's a good reason why so few good professional boxers are in MMA

    Vitor Belfort comes to mind. He was an olympic level boxer. Alessio Sakara also had a background in boxing, but he sucks ass.
