which one do you watch and why? i'm 45 and prefer boxing and do believe its making a "comeback" for telivised coverage. somehow i never got into the ultimate fighting. guess i associate it with pro wrestling somehow
Have to agree....UFC is useless to me and gives a bad message to our youth. Try pulling that junk in the street and your butt would end up in jail for assault or attempted murder.
Boxing required skill and is a recognized Olympic event where UFC reminds me of some bar brawls I saw in the Navy.
I like both... But prefer boxing if I had to choose. I watched that Mayweather fight on PPV a couple weeks ago. Really like the middleweights. They are fast, quick on their feet, don't hang all over each other and their stamina and endurance is off the charts.
Where have you been? I had to work late... Oh these? Yeah, it was 'camo day' at work again .
I grew up on boxing, but then lost some interest as there just aren't as many good boxers anymore. Mayweather and Pacquio are pretty good but it seems like alot of excuses when they were supposed to fight. UFC has come a along way with there rules and judging to make it more of a legitamate sport. They have alot of up and coming fighters and more action packed fights. Not to mention I've always been interested in the martial arts so getting to see a sport where they can kick or do submission I find interesting. Though I would like to see better boxing skills from alot of the MMA fighters. JMO but I think time may have passed boxing by. The fights on fridays and saturdays used to be a big thing, no so much anymore. UFC cleans up with there pay-per-views. I would love to see George St. Pierre get healthy and fight in a superfight against Anderson Silva.
i prefer UFC. boxing is a made up fight. who acrually would only throw punches in a real fight. it's been proven many times ina reel fight UFC fighters beat boxers. that's not to say boxing skills are not essential to UFC but it is only 1 skill set a UFC fighter needs to be in the sport. as for being compared to WWF or what ever they call it now, it is not even close. UFC is fighting plain and simple with eal punches, kicks, elbows and blood. and the fighters don't fight the next week without a mark on them. get educated about UFC its real.
I enjoyed boxing back in the days of Hagler,leonard,Hearns,Duran,Benitez,Larry Holmes,Weaver, later on tyson but later i started renting vhs tapes of Royce Gracie MMA stuff before the average person even knew what it was, before Dana White took over.
I prefer UFC but if i see a good boxing matchup i will watch it, getting alittle tired of waiting on Mayweather/Pacquiao
