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.
