Rampage Over-rated? Are strikers bad boxers?
wow am I the only one who thought he just looked like a really really bad boxer? look don't get me wrong I LOVE MMA and can appreciate it on many levels. I think guys like GSP are the future of UFC and can make the sport unique in that they use all of the different avenues available to win in a UFC bout. What I don't like is what rampage displayed the other night, just poor boxing skills. These guys that are just strikers may excite the fans with a knockout here or there, but because of the UFC's desperate need for mainstream acceptance it is more likely a quick stoppage because one figher threw a quick flury. At least with boxing there is a standing 8 count to recover from a flury, or you get to count to 10 to recover and make a fight of it, in mma these srikers just dominate for a few seconds and boom it is over. I wonder if there is a way to amend rules, or fix the ufc for a more satisfying conclusion to some of these fights.
