Harder or tiring, I couldn't tell you.

Harmful it is definitely boxing due to the repeated blows to the head without a KO to end the fight.

Boxing has several deaths every year in sanctioned Boxing fight.

MMA has had none. (there is one that is brought up often, but it doesn't count because the fighter had a previous head injury, had been blacking out in practice, and shouldn't have been in the ring in the first place. Also, I don't think there was a sanctioning body.)

UFC would be harder because it's a big company, and I wouldn't be able to make all the decisions that Dana makes.

Oh wait....do yo mean MMA...?

Haha, I've given up correcting people when they interchange "UFC" and "MMA". To Dana's credit, he has made the two almost synonymous.

Actually there's Sam Vasquez. But honestly that is the only one and doesn't even compare to how many people die in professional AND amateur boxing matches.

I don't really count that either because Vasquez had a pre-existing blood clot in his head. Yeah, technically he died due to blunt force trauma to the head in conjunction with the blood clot, but that pre-existing condition caused it.

Exclamation Cardio Versus Blunt Force

When it comes to blunt force and the types of injuries that would be MMA. On the other hand boxing is probably more challenging when it comes to cardio cause the matches are so long! Sure they are only three minute rounds, but think about a longer match at twelve rounds! Do the math and it takes longer than a MMA title fight!

Unhappy Popularity

Well when you consider that the UFC is more well known than the sport itself, thats what people think of when they think of MMA!

Point taken, but anyone who has done mma training knows that a 3 min round is relatively easy compared to a 5 min round in terms of cardio. Those extra 2 mins are punishing especially if the pace is being pushed. Add this to the fact that mma fighters are using more muscles in the body and for different purposes. By that i mean a boxer doesn't have to worry about takedowns or kicks or whatever else may come. An mma fighter has it much tougher.
