Well..

I like the original idea. I think a great boxer with the knowledge and practice with kicks/elbows/knees/clinch has the best potential to be the best striker out of the bunch. But keep in mind all the stuff they have to update on.. It makes them a better striker.. But as much as I hate to say it, striking is nothing when compared with grappling. Submission wrestling is the greatest martial art.

The major flaw in using Boxing in MMA is the stance. The classic boxing stance isn't designed to encorporate takedown defense, and leaves the fighter vulnerable to take downs. An MMA fighter will adopt a wider stance, and place one foot further behind the other so his bodyweight isnt constantly loading on the front foot.

timenspace has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Whatever happened to wanting to see a guy get bashed in the face and knocked on his butt? It seems today maybe we have gone soft.
