It's not about a boxing stance, but the ability to not move only backwards to avoid an attack and to attack in angles. Dos Santos, Machida, Silva, Edgar and some others use footwork to bring themselves in optimal distance to attack and to avoid their opponent's attack, whereas fighters with bad footwork make their fights rather slugfests and rely more on raw power and their chin.
