I find it hilarious that he would include himself amongst such a great list of legends. Is he serious?? I hope for his sake I read it out of context and he was actually joking. If not, what a douche!

And who wrote this thing? "Intersting comments?" Says who? What the hell's so interesting about them?"

No, it's not. Cricket is. But that's a fad, too.

There sure isn't in boxing these days, either

Let him talk trash about mma for days. It will only draw more boxing fans to mma out of curiosity. Bad publicity is still publicity.

Jeff Lacy was a fad. He was probably one of the most hyped US fighters to come the UK, and was completely smashed by Joe Calzaghe. I don't think anybody cares about him now.

I think its kind of funny that to be a sport you have to make a crap load of money. I don't get that at all. Well according to that article thats the hint i got at least.

He was supposed to be the best supermiddle weight that would DESTROY Joe Calzaghe in a title match, i advise you to watch probably one of the best boxing matches in at least ten years and watch the cocky arrogant Lacey be given a 12 round boxing lesson that makes him look SHI@.

OmicMMA is an unknown quantity at this pointOmicMMA is an unknown quantity at this point
I love how he throws in the money factor...what a douche bag. The funny thing is, ask anyone, anyone who rampage jackson is, or chuck liddell and they know exactly who that person is. Ask anyone who this lacy *** is and most people are like what?!

The fad part can be argued by many in our sport. See I myself do this sport because A) im a huge fan and B) I love fighting. I was in boxing too, but its gay, i want to roll around and ground and pound and land huge head kicks...that excites me, not taking 400000000 punches in the head. (Not fun at all) Anyways I watched the first ever ufc when i was like 12 or somthing i cannot remember, but ever since then ive been hooked. Watching, learning, then fighting kids and learning the hard way. Im sure alot of boxers have done the same thing. I would never diss boxing, its fun as hell, at our gym we make it manditorty to sparr just boxing once a week. I love moving around and dodging punches, its great. I love kicking people more. haha

there are alot of guys and girls getting into this becasue it is kind of a fad for some, its the cool thing to do. But trust me human punching bags are really easy to detect and you know what its good, enables my sensei to make more money, makes me feel better when i hit them, and they usually have fun. I like exploiting this sport to diff people because it truly is great. I dont really care what some boxer thinks, i love fighting boxers too. I love sweeping into full mount and ground and pounding the shit outta the dude. Its fun man. We are the ultimate warriors boyz remember that!
