the fact that some one makes more money then the other person in their particular combat sport does not mean that they are better fighters then people in a very different combat sport.
if a boxer faught me and stuck to only using his fists, never learning takedown defense, never learning anything about wrestling, jujitsu or basic grappling anything, i will kick his leg untill he can barely stand and then take him down and submit him. a MMA fighter could easily avoid getting punched and play very defensively till they get the opportunity to take the boxer down. and thats assuming that the MMA fighter cant out strike the boxer all together.
while a boxer will limit himself to blocking, dodging and punching, i can punch, block, dodge, kick, knee, elbow, takedown, lock, and choke the boxer.
and if the boxer learned takedown defense and grappling defense then hes no longer just a boxer and has become a MMA fighter. thus the arguement that a boxer is better then a MMA fighter is VOID.
