Would you all agree with what I wrote in my article?

I am an amateur boxer and feel very strongly on the issue.
Are you sure Rashad Evans was a pro boxer? boxrec has no record for him and I don't see how he would even have time, given that he was a star collegiate wrestler right up to the time he started doing MMA in 2004 and it was only a year between his MMA debut and his appearance on TUF 2.

A couple of examples of accomplished (although not world class) pro boxers that are also successful MMA fighters would be Marcus Davis or Chris Lytle.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
