Yeah they had these stats broken down on Inside MMA about a week or two ago. Quite interesting. I think UFC will finish out on top as the wwe doesn't really have any big events left.

I think this will give us a fair assessment as to where MMA stands against boxing.

As of right now id say boxing is still bigger. As Shamrock said, people understand punching, not all understand what MMA is when it hits the ground.

I didn't watch the video but just looking at the numbers for HBO Boxing they didn't add the Cotto/Margarito fight in there and it did 470k buys.

Tito vs Jones = 500k

Pac vs Marquez = 450k

Pavlik vs Taylor = 230k

Pac vs Diaz = 200k

Total: 1.3 million

Now if you add the Cotto/Margarito fight, they are in the 1.8 million range.

Yeah i hear more casual fans talk about mma and it is even getting more ESPN love. It just that boxing has been around a lot longer and that's why they are getting paid more. We don't really see how much mma fighters actually get paid for each event cause some get a cut of the ppv money and event sales.

But even with that UFC still has more buys which is nice to see.

I think it will be close at the end of the year between HBO and the UFC

HBO still has:

Joel Casamayor vs Juan Manuel Marquez

Kelly Pavlik vs Bernard Hopkins

Joe Calzaghe vs Roy Jones Jr

Oscar De La Hoya vs Manny Pacquiao

The DLH/Pac fight is most likely going to end up as one of the top 3 or 4 highest grossing fights in history and should end up with a million buys. The other fights have some of the biggest names in boxing fighting so they should get really good numbers.

I really wish people would stop comparing the 2 and just enjoy both. Boxing is freakin' awesome, as is MMA. Roberto Duran is more manly that, say, Randy Couture, but still, Randy Couture's a manly dude.

I agree. As a huge Boxing and MMA fan I cant stand people that talk shit about either sport. I want to see MMA and Boxing do great.

The fact remains two BJJ fighters having a BJJ fight on the mat is not appealing to outsiders or casual fans and probably never will be. Like someone said the concept of two people trying to KO eachother is a lot easier to understand.

Personally I do prefer boxing. I haven't seen an MMA fight thats excited me as much as a great boxing fight before.

Also if people really wanna see MMA do well then they'd stop hating on guys like Tito Ortiz, Kimbo Slice and Brock Lesnar who, no matter what you think of them, bring in the casual fans.
