moaning about fighting on the floor?! Its tough to learn a decent ground game let alone have a good ground game. Jesus i never thought MMA was looked down upon by other styles like this (not saying everyone who does paticular styles does though).

Bisping read a quote from mcguigan in a newspaper along the lines of:

He answered his comments on a net blog for a newspaper on the run up to his first UK fight. Basically invited him nicely down to train & have a day with the guys from the gym.
Barry never replied to his invitation.
Lets face it, i love boxing but while its not finished, the UFC & MMA are getting bigger & bigger. Most MMA fans woulda enjoyed boxing before MMA exposure, for some reason there are fans of boxong who didnt take to it.
Instead of live & let live, these fans need to say stupid things re: our sport, important figures in boxing throw in their 2 bob every time they feel like it. Its a selction of boxing fans & pundits that feel the need to be down on MMA.
Heres a challenge for boxing vs MMA:
Both put on the strongest card they can. Have the show at the same time, same city & on PPV. See who comes out on top with gates & PPV numbers.
Gimmie a better boxing card than:
HW Championship: Lesnar vs Velasquez
LHW Championship: Machida vs Shogun II
MW Championship: Silva vs Maia
WW Championship: GSP vs Hardy
LW Championship: Penn vs Edgar
Mir vs Carwin
Rampage vs Evans
Sonnen vs Belfort
Daley vs Koscheck
Florian vs Gomi
For safety comparrison, count the number of head shots landed & the number of knock downs from head strikes, the number of unanswered strikes leading to a tko/ko stoppage.
see which sport is deemed more dangerous then.
