what is it with these homophobic moron boxers? Apparently the only way a real man fights is with his fists.

Gay! Gay I tell you!

Such blatant gayness! This is the gayest thing since gay came to gaytown!


Okay, sorry.


I actually think that MMA fighters would be much more humble if most boxers actually gave them some of the respect they deserve. More often than not though they get the typical, hump me on the ground response, which is really just sad.

There is an art in that. It's called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu...

MMA isnt a sport to me PERIOD! Its almost something like a freak show.
If boxers spent more time ducking punches and less time ducking opponents, maybe the sport would look a little less like professional wrestling.

Actually, Omar, it's an EXCLAMATION POINT! Not a period.

Lets turn it around I wanna fight Frankie Edgar of MMA in a boxing match. I bet I'll knock him out quicker than James Toney lost yesterday.
When MMA fighters decide that the only important weapon is their hands, they'll call you. But, in the mean time, they'd rather be fighting than boxing.

Seriously, I'd love to put you in K-1, have you fight Buakaw Por Pramuk, and see how much talking your hands (or any other part of you) did when he lays a shin across your jaw.

No real skill is needed to be a MMA fighter I mean you got heavyweight champions with a 3-1 MMA record you will never see that in boxing!
You really want to get started on a list of things you'll never see in boxing?

How about fighters who actually want to take on the best competition in the world? How about fighters who actually show up to fight because they love it, not because it's their only marketable job skill? How about guys who get paid jack-sh*t, but bring performances that bring entire stadiums to their feet?

And how about this? How about fighters who show respect for the skill sets of other athletes? Where's that in boxing, exactly?


Quote:
I seen the James Toney fight that was so wack! MMA is garbage you can legally choke someone unconscious WFT!
Boxing is the best PERIOD!
Yeah, because, we all know that in a real fight, your opponent is going to stand in front of you and just throw hands, out of respect for the Marquess of Queensberry.

You're going to complain that you didn't like a move? That was your biggest problem with the James Toney fight?

I guess Omar has never been in a fight in his life, just boxing matches.

On a serious note, though, I get pissed off about guys like this. I'd love to just tear one of Omar Henry's arms out and beat him unconscious with it. This guy competes in a sport where, even if the competitors were fighters, even if their skills counted for something in the real world, you'd never know it, because the restrictions on technique are so heavy.

The majority of boxing techniques as implemented in contemporary sport are just not effective in a fight, and we saw that with Toney. They require a level of commitment to the front leg and a willingness to leave the lower body totally unprotected. Boxers aren't fighters, and we've known this for some time. Omar Henry doesn't fight, he boxes, and that's fine.

This guy should know, if we are really going to go over the list of things "real men" shouldn't do, twitter would probably be on that list.

Either Omar is either trying to hype a "freak show" fight of his own, or he's just not very bright.

Either way, crap like this has a lot to do with why I hardly watch boxing anymore.
