    Here comes the old MMA vs Boxing debate...I knew it would hit our wonderful boxing thread sooner or later...Thanks Cupster haha

    I love both MMA and Boxing but if I have a choice to make between those two I'd take boxing. The romantic history of boxing sets it apart from almost anything else. Its Cinderella stories of coming from nothing and becoming a world champion inspire and gives us hope. There are very few live events that can rival a championship boxing match.

    Sure boxing has its problems (like too many damn organizations) but it still delivers.

    Yah, I don't want to start some huge argument between which is better. I'm totally open to enjoying both of them. I'm trying to give MMA a fair shot. Maybe my friends who are trying to convert me to MMA, hyped it up too much. I have a ton of respect for those guys, but I just don't find it that exciting. Maybe my feelings will change when I get to see more MMA fights, maybe not.

    I've been to several live championship boxing events in Vegas, and there is nothing like it.

    You're right about the history of the sport as well. Nothing like it.

    You guys have probably noticed that I'm active in the MMA thread and this one.

    I love both sports and I'm not a big fan of arguing over which one is "better". I think both sports are two completely different animals. No reason to compare the 2. Both of them can co-exist I think.

    I like both as well but Boxing makes it very hard to watch fights regularly with no set time and very little exposure. From this perspective MMA is really cleaning boxings clock and pulling away some of boxing audience.

    Its funny that the boxing I do see is always by chance and generally not a 1/2 bad match but when they do all the hype and hoopla for big fights they always leave me disappointed.

    MMA or rather the UFC has a tremendous advantage in terms of being organized.

    Every month there's a PPV and lately they have been very good cards. With boxing 4-5 months might pass before there is another "big" fight.

    Sure MMA is getting fans from the boxing audience but I don't think those fans are leaving boxing completely.

    I think the UFC is really killing the WWE fan base personally.

    And Barrera's career goes out in a whimper.

    At least Morales had the balls to go down swinging.

    I didn't watch the fight, but I heard Barrera headbutted Pac. Morales will always be the true warrior.

    Didn't watch the fight? You might have been the only Filipino that didn't see it!

    No head butt, but in the 11th, Pac was strafing Barrera and Barrera clinched. On the break, Barrera threw a big time right that landed. Pretty lame.

    If I only knew the Kings were gonna lose tonight, I would've definitely paid 50 bucks to see it.
