As Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) skyrockets in popularity, the resistance of mainstream media outlets (Sports Illustrated and ESPN) has historically probably been due to a fear of pro-wrestling combined with old-school boxing writers lack of understanding. Boxing writers love boxing; and they often feel, correctly, that MMA fighters usually aren’t the best boxers.

Awesome, awesome article. I think every combat sport is poetry in motion, each having their own nuances. MMA is still a young sport, like the author has stated, and is continually evolving. Someday, it too, will be a "sweet science."
