The parts most people consider boring in MMA are the ones where they roll around on the ground. This is actually the most technical part of a fight usually. Each opponent vying for a better position, using leverage, tactics, and speed to catch someone in a submission or pass their guard for some ground and pound. Most your good MMA guys have technical boxing skills too and actually have professional class boxing trainers.

anyway, MMA>boxing. i'm a boxer but i know that someone who can only throw blows standing, has clinches and has no throws has got nothing going on someone whose fighting style incorporate throws, submissions and an ability to strike from any position and no clinches. boxing is more fun to watch though.

Antonio Inoki?

But yeah this is a pretty easy pick.
MMA.

Neither one is better, it's all opinions.

Like asking what's better, Basketball or Soccer, obviously Basketball is better...wait, what was I saying?

I have not seen, an MMA fight that comes close to:

Ali vs. Fraizer 3, Chavez vs. Taylor 1, Haggler vs. Hearnís, or Moralez vs. Manny 1.


I could go on. But you get the picture.

I get what you're saying.
A lot of people like to say it's comparing apples and oranges.
But I think with the case of MMA it's a little different.
I say that because of the nature of what one on one combat is.
boxing is a very limited form of one on one combat that lets participants strike eachother.
You can't really do anything in the clinch.
You can't take your opponent to the mat.
You can't submit your opponent.
You can't kick your opponent.

Now MMA incorporates much much more than boxing.
Yes,boxers look better at boxing that your average MMA guy.
But that's because an MMA fighter cannot focus straight on boxing.
He has to add a lot more to his arsenal.

I'm not really trying to disagree with you,because it comes down a lot just to personal taste in the end.

But I think Boxing and MMA are alot more closley related than Soccer and Basketball.

As far as pure entertainment, probably boxing.

I've always enjoyed watching and practicing Judo more than boxing/kickboxing so I would pick MMA. wink

Bit ridiculous to claim there's no technique in MMA. BJ Penn has been world champion in Jiu Jitsu and Dan Henderson was an Olympic wrestler.

How about Football and Rugby?

Again, it's all opinions, it doesn't matter if they are 99% a like, that was not the point of my post.

Yes but within MMA and boxing they are both combat sports.
The question was which is the better fighting sport.
Boxing only incorperates one aspect of of combat fighting,while MMA incorperates many more.
While the one aspect boxing has is represented better in it's own sport than it proabably is in MMA,MMA all around has more aspects of fighting.
Their not 99% alike at all.
Boxing only has one aspect of a combat sport.
MMA has many more.
Therefore I would say instead of being like apple and oranges,in boxings case it would be; okay,here's an apple,but you can only eat the skin of it.
MMA imploys many more aspects of fighting,therefore I think most would have to assume it's a better fighting sport.
I can agree it is down to opinions,but for the sake of arguement That's why I would say MMA.

As much as I love Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts, I prefer K1 Kickboxing. K1 MAX to be exact.

The striking is just phenomenal, and the fights are always high paced. Every single fighter deserves to be in that ring, and I've always been impressed with the showcase of skills.

Buakaw
Masato
Gago Drago
Zambidis
Kyshenko
Kraus
Petrossian

The list goes on

When it depends entirely on opinion you can't really make a legitimate argument for one being better than the other.

MMA is just as old as Boxing, but in the ancient times, it was known as Pankration.

Anyway, both are great sports. One is a sport of punching, the other is striking and grappling.

I prefer MMA/UFC over Boxing any day.

Funner to watch imo, all round fighting ability including submissions.

You can say that about almost anything though.

And I think it also depends on what is ment when the original poster said "better".
