In my opinion the distinction between styles doesn't come into play that heavily at a skill level of 8 months - 2 years of training. I would think a better indicator would be, who works harder? whos a better athlete? and who has more will power [or doesnt want to get embarassed more]?

TKD Has effective kicks that can knock you out fast, but 8 months of it vs. 2 months of Boxing, Boxing should win. For TKD to actually be effective, you have to get very good in it, which takes at least 2 years for most people.

If you want to fight him, I suggest you train your conditioning/strength, and WATCH OUT FOR HIS KICKS!
One little slip and he can ko you with a kick. But otherwise, you should win.

Trust me, I know. I have been in Taekwondo all my life.

rofl, i doubt there are any legit tkd fighters, but there are some who trained in it. most of the time i see tkd fighters especially going to some mcdojo for some bull. i sparred a florida champion and the dude couldn't stand up with me.
... Dude, with all due respect, you are an idiot. First of all, Anderson Silva trained in TKD for over 10 years. Other MMA fighters have too.

And second of all, anyone can win a state champion title in TKD... I'm a state champion in TKD, and I only had to beat 2-3 people... State titles are easy to win in TKD.

How would my JJ and MT stack up to his TKD??? I am planning to take him on in 5 months time. Any tips???

You should deal with him quite easily to be honest then unless he is some kind of prodigy. JJ and MT very good combination to do aswell as past boxing experience should be fine. Leg kicks will stop his high kicks eventually and look for a takedown when you can, or get in a clinch where he can kick.

I agree with GMW. I am hearing a lot of oppinions and theories here. "TKD is crap, just take him out with a 1,2 then GnP him." NO fight is so simple as this. There is no move or strategy that is %100. Anything can happen. It's foolish to think that he's ignorant to MMA, and Sandman hasn't established himself in wrestling, BJJ, or Muay Thai. It's easy to watch the UFC and think "Oh that's easy." Once punches start really flying, your brain goes out the window until you're used to it.

I think the reason that TKD is less effective in MMA is NOT because of the techniques, but the lack of genuine sparring. Point sparring is SO SO SO different from fighting. You focus so much on technique rather than simply effective striking. That said many fighters have studdied Tae Kwon Do at some point.

I trained in TKD for YEARS, and as such, my kicks are good. MMA opened my world up, and I abandoned TKD, but now that the rest of my game is SLOWLY coming together, my TKD is coming into play as my best offensive tool standing up. Also, side kicks can be VERY effective, if used strategically.

My advice is... just don't make a big deal about it. Just have fun. You can both learn from eachother. If you spar to prove a point, noone has fun.

If' you're good at MT and BJJ you'll tool him all over the place more than likely (assuming you're the same size/weight etc). My old sparring partner was a 2nd degree black belt in TKD. They telegraph stuff so much it's ridiculous. Just make sure you dont get caught with one of those epic spinning kicks huh?

EDIT: Just read Ryfuls post. From by experience TKD kicks are no where near as effective as MT kicks. The reason being is that TKD kicks land with the foot or with the Heel while MT kicks land wiht the shin. When you kick someone in the head with your foot theres a damn good chance you're shattering your foot. When you hit them with your shin, it's like smacking someone with a baseball bat. :\

I dont think TKD is totally useless but it's more of an XMA art than a fighting art in my eyes and from what I've seen.

Like other people have been saying, just use your boxing skills. Evade his kicks, step in and show him hands. Don't get cocky, those flashy kicks hurt if they actually land =P
