The war of words between boxing and the UFC has heated up lately, with Floyd Mayweather Jr. questioning the legitimacy of mixed martial artists, and UFC fighters firing back that he'd be in for a rude awakening in a cage.

Mayweather can kiss my ass, I hope one day he runs into Sherk and I'd bet he would'nt have anything to say to his face then.

put the two in the octagon and sherk wins, but put them in a boxing ring and mayweather embarrasses him. two different types of sport though so can everyone not leave this alone now?

I think what keeps this going is the ignorance of Mayweather. Sherk has come out in an interview that he would not win in a boxing match, but Floyd has said that he or any of his guys would be able to overpower in the octagon. If this was simply Floyd saying MMA'ers couldn't stand up in a boxing match, then it would be a moot point because its kinda obvious.

Tetrisbrokeme: I'm sure everyone here knows this...even Sherk knows this. The problem is that Mayweather doesn't know this...and he is running his mouth about it. All everyone wants is for him to put up or shut up.

And you do have it backwards...Mayweather would be the embarrassed one...he was the one talkin' shit and making claims that he will never be able to back up.
