You do know they box in MMA right? Did you not see that last night?
You're acting like Boxing and MMA are mutually exclusive. They're not. They're very much intertwined.
If you can't close the distance properly, you can't land a takedown.
Where is this prolific kicking you've seen from Ronda? Did Holly have to check a single kick last night?
The answers are right in front of your face if you just open your eyes.
If you STILL need people to "explain" it further.....well.....ignorance is bliss I suppose.
The boxing in MMA and regular boxing are not the same and you know it. Ronda didn't respect Holly's boxing and paid for it. I never denied that.
Against a boxer, an MMA fighter could bear crawl to close the distance. Obviously Ronda couldn't do that last night because Holly is an MMA fighter with other weapons. And even against Holly's superior stand up, Ronda was at least able to close the distance once. Floyd, nor any other boxer, would be able to defend that the way Holly did
And it wouldn't even take a prolific kicker to hurt Floyd in that aspect given he's never taken/defended a kick a day in his life.
