most boxers don't really make sh*t either

Andre Ward's net worth is only around 2 million and dude is a top 5 f!ghter ATM....
He just got into the top 5 recently, though. You know in the next few years its gonna be big pay days for him.

All depends how he acclimates to the ground game. Ive met some nasty boxers who just give up and quit . I've met some who look at the ground game with a true understanding on what they must improve on. You can't really say until you see em on the mat taking those white belt lumps.

What i think dude meant about tyson not surviving wasn't in the stand up because we all know it was pretty much natural for tyson but for everything else bjj, and wrestling.

n*ggas acting like he would walk in purely a boxer NO Mike got in the ring to be the best and take your soul while doing so no doubt in my mind he would have picked up one or more techniques while already having a solid amateur background and hands of stone

you can have a black belt in all the judo you want but in today's mma if you're stand up is garbage and you're facing someone with excellent take down defense and a nice stand up you're going to have a long night. Most mma f!ghters nowadays are going back to boxing skill as a root regimen

You have to be well-versed in many disciplines to compete in MMA @ the highest level.

Junior dos Santos started off Kickboxing. His hands are real nice, he probably has the best hands in the HW division.

Jon Jones has a Greco-Roman wrestling background and employs a lot of Muay-Thai in his f!ghts.

Anderson Silva has it all, impeccable Muay-Thai skills and if you take him down, he can very well submit you. He's a BJJ black belt underneath the Noguiera Brothers.

GSP is the epitome of a GnP f!ghter. He has the best takedown in the game, some of the best top control and sub-defense too.

Ben Henderson has a wrestling background. Trained Tae-Kwan Do as a kid and is a brown belt in BJJ under John Crouch, who is a black belt under Royce Gracie.

Jose Aldo has an extensive background in both Muay Thai and BJJ, as most of the Brazilian f!ghters do.

Dominick Cruz is a very good wrestler too, who may use Boxing more than the other current UFC champions (maybe not JDS) that I have listed. He took down strong wrestlers like Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson @ will.

Those are all the current UFC Champions (HW-135) and every single one of them have grappling skills, whether it's Wrestling, BJJ or usually both. You can maybe argue that JDS has relied on his Boxing to win most of his f!ghts but definitely not for any of the current champs.

Tyson would literally k!ll somebody with those Mma gloves. He would shatter jaws and fracture skulls. Real sh*t. Who's that idiot who said boxing ain't complex? If its so easy then why don't all these UFC guys go box instead and make 100 times the money? Boxers make more in one f!ght that most Mma guys make in a career. Lmao. Boxing is so technical it's not even funny.

busta douglas knocked him out with a luck shot right ? what would fedor,jon jones,allistar, rampage do with a lucky shot ?

Not sure if serious? Douglas beat Tyson in round 10 and it was by no means "a lucky shot" that did him in.

Tyson in his prime would fu*k around and k!ll someone if he was boxing without gloves. I've never seen him throw a kick either, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't even get to that point.

I been learning martial arts since I was young, and I had to train people who box they were some slow learners, and could not keep up with my punches, maybe pro's is different.

i think you just were working with slow learners period, because based on my on personal experience i can say the same thing about wrestlers, BJJ practioners and Karate f!ghters
