I feel deeply uncomfortable with violence against another person being a sport. I know technically it's about skill and fitness and whatever, but on a base level it horrifies me.

 

I was like that. Then I started watching boxing and saw the skill/fitness side much more.

I have a friend who did the Fight for Life charity event, and he trained so hard and learned great skills. But when I watched him physically strike his opponent in the ring I still felt a little sick.

I am of the same opinion. Particularly with UFC fighting. I don't believe it to be a proper sport at all. More of an excuse to legally beat the shit out of another person.

Although I disagree with some of his policies, I have to admit our Prime Minister is a pretty good boxer. I've probably posted this before, but here's a video of him beating the shit out of a conservative senator who was charged with beating his wife, quit the senate, and became a strip club bouncer (note: this happened after this match).

Putting a UFC fighter up against a boxer is about as ridiculous as you can get. Unless McGregor gets a hell of a lot of proper boxing training under his belt it will never work. Either Mayweather will easily, or McGregor will get disqualified for (accidental) rule breakage. He's not a boxer. He doesn't have the mindset of a boxer. And people calling for this fight really have no clue about how professional sport works. Whatever way you look at it, this would be a career change for McGregor. There's just no way he can train for 2 different sports and be successful in both. Whatever way it works out in the future, one will always be a distraction from the other.

 

I agree for the most part, I think Floyd would win, but when I said I think people would be surprised at how long the match would last, this is what I meant; mayweather is old and slower, mcgregor is in his prime. I think Mcgregor would maybe even have chance of NOT getting knocked out.

 

Either way, the fight would never happen. But if it did, I'd certainly buy it.

That's why it's so great! Not to mention the technicality that goes into UFC training is far more intense and impressive than boxing. It takes a much better athlete to do what a UFC fighter does compared to what a boxer does. I do fancy both sports, though. How is boxing a "proper" sport and UFC isn't? You're trying to beat the shit out of the opponent in both. One is just more brutal than the other because the rules allow it. It's the ultimate way to find out who is the better athlete. Who is faster, who is smarter, who is stronger, who has trained harder, and who is more versatile in mixed martial arts.

 

Opposing opinions about the sport, obviously, but I will say I think partially why UFC gets a bad rep is because of the way the UFC company/network carries itself. They are not nearly as professional as a ppv boxing match. UFC is still developing. It is loud and in your face, and they are trying to attract as many fans as possible with a bunch of ridiculous antics. A lot will change once Dana White gets away from UFC. Shit, even Joe Rogan talks about the bullshit that goes on with the UFC.

I never said boxing was a "proper" sport. I was just emphasising my thoughts on UFC as I think it's worse.

I obviously didn't thoroughly read your posts before I posted. I see.

It really was something....it was actual sport, not simply money-making bland crap (Mayweather-Pacquiao, anyone?).

It goes both ways - a boxer would destroy a UFC fighter in a boxing match.

It is amazing what UFC fighters go through.

 

Wrong.

Are you joking? May weather literally controlled the pace and the timing. He, for the first time in his career, put on a show. McGregor fought, but nowhere near the same level

Haha. He's a looker, but also not much of a doer. More of a talker.
