From one of the best boxing sites on the net (Maxboxing) is an article about Floyd Mayweather, and boxers' in general, difficulties in MMA. Marcus Davis (the most experienced boxer the UFC has right now) gives a good breakdown of how the sports differ:

I thought it was very fair of Maxboxing to allow him to say all of that (or more accurately to print it after he said it). I know there are some boxing writers who totally crap on MMA (guys like Jim Lampley and Michael Katz), but that seems to be the over-50 crowd who are shocked that their heros aren't able to win any style of fight. Young guys like Steve Kim, Doug Fisher and Max Kellerman always seem to give MMA a fair shake, saying it's a legit sport with good athletes, just not the one they prefer to watch and write about.
