    Isn't our definition of LARP people dressing up in funny clothes hittting each other with padded wepons and where the outcome is pre determened?

    Actually I really like boxing I just have been dying to use that line.

        The first thing who pop up in his mind, while watching a MMA fight, is gay and tide shorts ??! Not the punches or the blood ? The choking and the grappling ? He should stick to `safer` shows, like Learn how to cook or Home improvement.

          I used to be a huge boxing fan, but there aren't many boxers out there I care to watch anymore.

          I agree boxers are starting to get more and more self conscious about being compared to MMA fighters. The bottom line is this: for years and years boxers enjoyed the perception that they were the baddest men on the planet. That's just not true any longer and they know it.

          Everyone - even most MMA fans want to take the high road and give boxers plenty of credit. They point out that boxers can beat MMA fighters at boxing and vice versa. That's true, but as a result of the MMA revolution over the last 15 years or so, we all know that there's more to fighting than standing there trading punches.

          In fact, I probably know 20 or so amateur and low-level pro MMA fighters within an hour's drive of my house who could kick the shit out of Floyd Mayweather in a fight. Not in a boxing match, not in MMA. In a fight. That's the way it is now. Boxers know it and a lot of them are becoming extremely sensitive about it. They lost the pissing contest.

            Boxing is a noble sport that, like BJJ, develops a specific skill set. OZZ makes a good point that many younger people do not appreciate the striking skill developed by boxing.
            There is a whole host of things that Boxing should be appreciated for..the slipping of punches is a good example. I think because in MMA you get fighters standing a fair distance away from one another (becuase of kicing and knees) the art of slipping gets pushed aside a bit because there is less neccessity for it. The same thing goes for a the jab..not utuilized quite as much in MMA because of the range between fighters.

              Interesting. I hqave allways related this back to Muai Thai where you dont slip much because loosing posture is more important that avoiding the punch

                why? if you counter off the slip you'll be in an advantageous position.

                  As far as I know.
                  Can't kick as easy from a crouched position. And if you take the duck and weave too far you can eat a knee.

                  It is more about quarter turn offs

                  But have a look at Muai thai fighters they just dont do it.

                  It is not just cultural either most aussie thai fighters will have boxed at some time.

                  I will refraze that trained in boxing.

                  But I will do a hunt around and ask exactly why and see what I get.

                    Ant, a gay comedian, once explained why boxing was clearly invented by gays:
                    "Think about it; it's two topless men, wearing silk shorts, fighting over a belt and a purse."
                    The fool thinks himself immortal,
                    If he hold back from battle;
                    But old age will grant him no truce,
                    Even if spears spare him.

                          Muay Thai isn't in my style field because I don't train it as a separate sport anymore, but I used to get away with slipping (which doesn't put you in a crouched position) all the time.

                          imo the main reason is because most mt fighters' (at least in the UK) boxing sucks, or at the very least they lack the confidence to try it in the face of oncoming punches. I get the whole ducking is dangerous thing but tbh I've been doing that since ever and only got kneed in the head once (I miss-timed it). I'm more worried about getting choked than kneed.

                          ..that being said I'm not exactly an authority by any means

                            I feel like it's more that most MT gyms are more focused on kicks and the clinch. My place doesn't completely neglect the hands, but we pretty much just use punches to set up our kicks, or to bash our way into the clinch.

                              What I don't understand is how he can say "UFC has it's place and it's fans", as in he can see it fitting in, and then turn around and diss it.

                              By definition then, anything involving grown men touching each other whilst sweating is gay. Boxing, wrestling, rugby, etc.

                              I think he just likes saying "panties".
