Boxing legend Barry McGuigan called it "dirty" and "undignified", but statistics suggest it is safer than boxing.
Ultimate Fighting Championship is coming to Britain - and British boxing is rattled.
Barry mcguigan, like many other scared boxing commentators are all on the payrole for comentating on boxing. Thats it. If the ufc come to the uk and show a more exciting event different to boxing (ufc 70) to the british public, and gets a following, (like they have) boxing will slowly fade to grey. The money is in the ufc, boxing is not selling anymore, the ufc is the new sport that everybody wants to be a part of. Barry is scared of loosing his job, thats all.
No deaths or real serious injury's on record in mma since it was tellivised in 1993 to date !!!
Boxing is the "dirty" sport. Two guys repeatably send blows of full force to the head and body for 12 rounds.
In mma one hard punch and the fight is over, no huge build up of head shots or brain damage like in boxing.
Its a scientific fact that a series of strikes to the head is more long term damaging than one swift punch that causes a ko.
In mma theres loads of ways to win a fight as we all know, and all fighters cross train so their tecniques are much more advanced than boxers as they stratigise the way they fight and always have a number of ways to beat there opponant.
