You don't get killed in boxing like you do in MMA. Pillow hands only vs MMA gloves + elbows + legs 

Wtf? You do get killed in Boxing like in any bloodsport actually many people have died and picked up horrific injuries, have you ever been hit with an actual boxing glove to be saying this as the impact is immense as it spreads out the force of the punch, all it protects is the Boxer's knuckles.

This, besides there's the fact that in box most hits are to the head or just the upper body. Matches last longer too, and even if one hit in particular won't be as hard as a kick on the head I'd say it's worse for the body that you get 50 punches to the head that don't instantly knock you over a kick that quickly ends the match.

In the long run I see boxing more damaging to the body

Anyone who pays money form something involving anything with Floyd Mayweather is a sucker. Pacquiao vs Horn was a solid (albeit controversial) fight and that was free... Pacquiao vs Mayweather was $100 just to watch two guys dancing around the ring for a half hour.

The McGregor fight is probably going to be the same thing. Either that or McGregor gets TKO'd early after he decides he's done and just wants to collect his money already.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

You can be killed in boxing mathematically as bad as one can be killed... till your dead.

Seriously?  You don't think people die in MMA?  Sure wasn't it only last year mcgregor was ringside at an MMA fight and the guy died. 

 

Obviously you're not up to date on your MMA so I'm going to stop discussing this.

Can you please point out where I said anything about people not dying in MMA?

We obviously don't mean killed as in death. We mean it in fight talk terms. Now re'read our posts and think again. 

Yes i've been punched many times with a oxing glove. But it's nothing compared to a knee to the head or a foot to the head with more force behind it. Or as sore as an elbow to the temple. I never did MMA but but my knee acidently connected with a guys face as he fell over in a football match before. Broke his nose and cheek. It was nasty. 

 

So again you'll never been killed as bad in boxing as you would in MMA. 

Go tell that to Margherito after his fight with Pacquaio, Roy Jones after his bout with Calzhaghe or Gerald McClellen who is partially blind and wheel chair bound because Boxing easily has equivalent injuries are you sure you're not just using a training glove either as well as the wraps underneath them because I assure you when a trained boxer hits you you are not getting up that's before we get to the internal injuries inflicted which is is why the number 1 rule is defence in the sport.

Chris English Eubank considered retiring after he put a man in a coma, I'm going to call you out on this one because the are a large number of examples that contradict your argument here.

Many people think that boxing gloves make it so that the punches are "soft".  But, the reality is those gloves are heavy.  They multiply the force of the punch.  That's why people are routinely knocked unconcious in boxing matches.  



The press conference with mcgregor and Floyd snr going at it was comedy gold https://youtu.be/IvNVjc9x0dc

I'm starting to think that these two guys are actually really good friends and they're just playing the public like a fiddle.

They've done tests, and they haven't definitively been able to determine whether you hit harder or softer with gloves.  What is clear though is that gloves are way easier on your first.  Skulls are hard and you can't punch someone in the head for 12 rounds with your bare fists.  With gloves on, you can.



Boxing is deadlier than MMA. The gloves are designed to protect the hands so fighters can punch harder for longer. In addition, you don't get 10 counts and standing 8 counts in MMA. A fighter that would be finished in an MMA fight gets a chance to recover and take more of a beating.



Mcgregor is going to get destroyed.
