Any time any MMA person is on ESPN they bring up boxing...I really don't respect the comparisons.

Hey, I got an idea ESPN, next time you get a baseball guy on, ask them how much better they think their sport is then cricket. You f-ckin terrible journalists.

Agreed. I don't get how boxing is compared to MMA so often. Boxing is two guys standing in front of each other trying to knock each other out with punches, and MMA just has so many more facets to it. Whatever in a couple of years, these old dudes will be eating their words when MMA is one of the top sports in the world. That being said, you gotta love Dana's consistency with putting down fighters who left the UFC!

ESPN has been turning it's nose up to MMA from day one along with all traditional print outlets. It's pathetic. They take an incredibly dated point of view and don't learn about the actual SPORT of MMA, rather they look at it through their own lense of ignorance. I grew up a big boxing fan, but by the mid 90's with or without MMA I was through with it. The dirty promoters, the absolute dirtbag fighters at the top of some of the divisions, the judges on the take, the sport was destroyed. I'm just glad MMA was there to pick up the slack from day one and the sport has done nothing but grow in its audience, it's diversity, and it's legitimacy particularly once the unified rules and weight classes came into play. At that point MMA left the bar room and became a legit sport that was more entertaining than any other to watch and exponentially more entertaining than boxing EVER was. I like Rome but he loses serious points letting old timers try and dictate to his audience whether or not boxing has lost it's place at the top of the combat sports totem pole.

I really love how people say that mma is barberic. Honestly, compared to boxing where guys punch each other in the face for 30 minutes straight. Give me a break, if people would just open up to the sport they would see what everyone else who loves it has become fascinated with

Love Romey, dude is fearless when it comes to his rants and he actually knows his shit.

Oh, and he loves MMA and seems to know quite a lot about the sport. He also promotes it and has the balls to promote it on a channel that talks about Tony Romos pinky more than the actual games themselves. So, he's cool in my book.

The guys on the panel, just typical. I don't waste my time getting upset over their horseshit anymore.

i stopped listening when the guy said "we might see some pins"....

seriously, i think this guy tuned in to watch the EliteXC: Heat, then basically said he was an mma fan...

i'm disappointed, cuz i like Rome....he started out great, but that forum was terrible...

Gottlieb isn't bad...he loves the sport...he just doesn't know much about it...and if you ever listen to his radio show he talks about it with a disclaimer that he states that he isn't knowledgeable in most facets of the sport. He is just an interested fan.

That other guy was just a bitter boxing fan though. I really don't understand why "boxing purists" are so anti-MMA. I guess it is like that guy who has an ugly wife and when he sees beautiful women, he just points out their flaws.
