Though i would hope an mma fighter goes into the ring and knocks out a boxer so they can stop talkin about mercer/timmeh.

Much like Allan Green's situation, you can have a tough time of things getting started in boxing...money wise.

If Nick were to fight someone of Green's caliber in official rules and rounds of boxing, he would end up losing and probably getting ktfo. The same goes for a guy like Green. If he were to step into the cage following all mma rules he would be brutalized, ktfo or submitted.
I agree, and I'm a huge fan of Diaz but I don't think he has the power to knock people out with boxing gloves on. We've seen him KO people before but I also saw him punch scott smith in the face probably 70 to 80 times in one fight. He might be able to win some boxing matches by points though
