Oh so he is some nobody who is being fed cans until his management can secure a big payday for him to fight someone an average joe would know. Got it.

I wouldn't say that. I think I read something that said he has only been a professional fighter for a little over a year so going 10-0 with 8 KO's is still pretty impressive. He is a very young fighter still so you can't really expect him to have huge names on his record yet.

Now with that being said, he definitely has no room to talk about fighters like Couture who have been around the block and back before he even thought about turning pro.

I like boxing and MMA. Comparing them is completley wrong becasue they diffrent sports. The thing that is strange to me is boxers and their fans attitudes.

I remeber when people said boxing was barbaric. Boxing fans would defend calling it a sport.

Now those same people call MMA barbaric and boxing is a sport with honor......They are both sports, but MMA works better in a set real combat.(Im talking about a fight with rules) MMA is a complete fight involving a ground game. Boxing is just one form of fighting, that is why it cannot compete with an MMA fighter.

Yup. A thing i forgot to mention in my post.
I don't care how promissing he is, but someone should tell him how it works. He has a record of 10-0 with wins over....nobodys: cans, boxers that box for those extra 2k a night in order to make some extra money and make sure that others like Omar have a nice record.
Why isn't he fighting contenders yet?! If not TOP 5-10 boxers, then at least TOP 20 fighters.
Because that's the way boxing is working. And that is the main reason boxing is going down like a massive rock down the mountain.
In MMA if you are good you get your chance to fight against contenders right away. An MMA fighter's record is something that usually tells the truth about how good he is, with some exceptions of course.
Someone should tell Omar that his record = zero so far. I don't care how promissing he is right now or how succesfull he will be in the future. Firstly he should beat a big name in boxing and maybe become a champ, and after that he could talk about MMA.
I believe he wouldn't last one minute in the octagon against any of the UFC, SF or WEC fighters.

BELIEVE!

I found this pretty funny. His conditioning coach Alex Ariza said Omar is very much like Cotto. ďHe moves like Cotto. He looks like Cotto. Heís got the same hair as Cotto. He wants to be like Cotto..."

So real men only throw punches?

Last time I checked soldiers and marines are taught how to throw kicks, how to takedown an enemy, are taught various armbars, choke holds, etc. You're telling me they don't fight like men? Whats not manly about using your tools to get a job done. Idiots.

Boxing is clearly a better sport because we get to see a bunch of 30-0 fighters fight for the championship for the first time.

There will never a fighter with a record of 20-0 or 30-0 in MMA, MMA sucks.
