hey i love floyd as well guys but imo he'd get straight up mudered in mma
sure his hands are probly better than almost any mixed martial artist but look at guys like sherk, bj, huerta, ken-flo...these guys have spent as much time on the ground as well as stand up where as floyd has only worked on his hands
even if floyd made the transition i'm sure even with about 6 months of hard ground training won't even be close to enough to defend against the top guys. this is just like when michael jordan switched careers to play baseball. he was decent and picked up the game after not playing it for a long time but he only played in the minors and struck out all the time. just because floyd's the michael jordan in boxing, doesn't mean he's gonna be the shit in mma
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
