It's crazy how so many people have died in boxing, yet MMA continues to get razzed when no deaths have ever happened in a sanctioned fight. I remember a guy in boxing just died very recently, after he left the ring when the fight was over he had brain damage and I think he went into a coma and later died. The guy who "killed" him just fought for a title recently.
because boxers work with hands only. and to be a good boxer u usually have devastating power and very good hand skills. with mma you work many areas. with boxing ur just gettin hit in the head the whole fight

It seem that im the only mma fan that thinks that boxing isnt more dangerous than mma. I dont understand, just because your a fan, you have to say that its safer than boxing..??
Its a fact that there are more ways to defend yourself in an mma bout but also more ways to get hurt...

One way we could find out, is to see how many deaths there has been out of how many fights. Or another kind of injury compared to the number of fights. MMA has only xisted for what 13 years? Boxing has existed for hundreds of years, of course there are more deaths in boxing..

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

I was boxing fan before MMA, and I am still a boxing fan, I'm not really into too much but I will watch it when its on. And I assume many people here were boxing fans before MMA. Like someone said before MMA has a lot more short term damage but boxing has a lot more long term damage mainly effecting the brain.

K I don't know where you guys get your info but MMA has been around for just as long as boxing! 13 years is hilarious man! LOL you guys know what MMA stands for right? You guys know who Royce Gracie's dad is don't you? It's not like the concept of fighting someone with a different style didn't come about till 1993. All MMA is, is two guys fighting that don't have the same background...you honestly think that 2 guys with different backgrounds never fought until 1993 A.D.? LMAO!

I am just reacting to the claim that there has never been a death in UFC,Pride etc which are the big organizations of martial arts competition. I Know the UFC started in 1993, but Vale Tudo in Brazil might be older I dont know. However, boxing is generally A LOT more popular sport than MMA, pro MMA is tiny compared to pro boxing..

The fact that there has been no deaths can in no way be used to imply that MMA is a safer than boxing, but it does say that MMA is maybe safer than people like O'Reillly believes.

OK I gotcha, but I disagree. I think it is ok to say MMA is safer than boxing. Maybe not by much but technically it is safer. The words safer and safest have different meanings.
