Watching the prelims these guys are so much faster and fluid than MMA strikers, I forgot how much I missed real boxing.

When engaged in combat, the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God or Buddha himself.

The prelims were awesome and free. First fight on card is meh, announcers still hyping all of the celebrities and trying prepare people for the great deception.

I've mentioned the difference in boxers vs. MMA fighters before.

It is a rather unfair comparison...comparable to watching a world class TKD competition and concluding that MMA fighters kicks are slow unimpressive.

The dynamics of MMA make the sport seem like a jack of all trades and a master of none.

With that said there are a lot of basics that could be improved in your average MMA fighter.

You should watch the real boxing match next month. :hand1:

God I know I miss Goldie, the shit is so bland without unpredictability and late stoppages. Benard Hopkins was the last boxer I still watched from back in the day. Hopefully this white boy will get slept.

The referee was trying to get us to the main event b/c he was bored.
