Striking in Boxing and MMA
link 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.

Anatomy of a UFC upset
link Now that it’s behind us and the reality of the situation has set in, I couldn’t help but wonder if there was an upside to this unlikely turn of events.
