There arnt many fighters i can think of who put together strings of combinations on a consistent basis.
i think that's another lame idea. if u have exceptional speed and significant power, u can pretty much do what u want.

thats because mercer vsed a fat moron called tim sylvia who thought it would be a jolly idea to stand and box with a professional boxer even though he had already been knocked on his ass by old man randy.

Right. When was the last time you saw "a hard well timed hook to put a shooting fool on his ass"? Some old wives tale that boxing fans like to hang their hopes on. Its nonsense. The only thing ive ever seen put a shooting fool out is a well timed knee.

Boxing footwork? Really? You would have no fecking knees left by the end of the fight. There are no corners to cut off and even if you do cut the cage off you may very well get clinched. The ref will not split you up.

The fact remains that boxing stance is completely wrong for MMA = footwork needs to work differently. To deny this is to deny everything we've learned over the last 10 years.

EDIT.

I just saw your Mercer comment. lol. Mercer got beat by Kimbo fooking Slice!

ok, so mercer was well past his prime. he still tooled the tall white goofy one.

that's another thing about mma fans that comes across rather comical to me. some of u peeps seem to think only muay tie fighters can throw a knee. u say u have to be able to use your knees to catch someone shooting in, well, using knees is pretty damn easy. a top notch boxer is going to get clinched? a top notch boxer would have one hell of an inside striking game and could throw those punches with blinding speed with small gloves, so i don't think so. would have no knees left? why? it's easier to counter a kick than it is a punch.

I lol'd at "the tall white goofy one"

Do you really want me to go through your points, counter-argue and then wait for your return volley again?

Ok then... if you insist. It is saturday and ive got nuffin to do.

A takedown can be achieved using all parts of the body. Sure, a full double dive can be countered with a hook maybe. But what about takedowns aimed at knees and ankles? A hook will do nothing but lose your balance making it that bit easier. The fact that you threw a hook also means your less likely to have control of the attackers head or arms. The technique Randy used to take down Toney for example? No boxing skill will ever stop that takedown.

The clinch? O come on now! MMA fighters stomp, knee and elbow in the clinch. A boxer with excellent inside boxing cant counter this. If you use boxings nuances with stance and positioning when throwing inside punches, god help you if you miss as your balance will be fecked and your gonna get tripped.

My reference to knees is simply because a boxers lead leg is generally so far forward that his knees will get either kicked or thier ankle grabbed for a takedown. If they tuck their lead leg in then the stance is changed = not the same type of punch thrown = sloppy ( apparently )


In closing. I'm not a fighter. I'm a bit of a soft centred idiot if I'm honest. All of my opinions are based on watching this shit and reading shit from other people. I might be completely wrong. But this being the internet, I'm allowed to hide behind my anonymous shield and call you completely wrong instead.

let's forget our conversation about relative technical what ifs. how many mma fighters have u seen recently who have consistently been able to take their opponents down at will, regardless of what type of punch was thrown? gsp and maybe sonnen? anyone else? ok, well, isn't light now being shed?

Dude, that's because their opponents are well trained MMA fighters. Thats why its difficult. If we were seeing lots of fighters with very average wrestling, then you would be seeing many more takedowns. You talk as if wrestling is something you get in a Kinder egg.( maybe 2 )

i'm tired, so this is my last statement for the night: whether talking professional mma fighters or street brawlers, using wrestling to gain an advantage seems to be much easier when both fighters are already on the ground compared to using wrestling to get someone on the ground.
