Wider skillset essential + chance to specialise + tougher problem solving on more fronts + greater risk.

Much more enjoyable and entertaining than boxing tends to be.

I get the skill and craft involved but it's hard not to consider a sport where kneed/elbows to the face are common a blood sport.
Bizarrely though the injury rate is lower than that for boxing (possibly due to shorter bouts?) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/art...1/#!po=38.7931

Also (and this probably just marks me out as a snob) but the demographic seems to be rednecks who've never set foot in a dojo in there life. I'm a strong believer that you can only have a valid opinion on a sport if you've actually played it yourself
N.B. By my own logic you should disregard my opinion on MMA

Injury rate is primarily due to much smaller gloves - boxing gloves protect the hands so are thrown much harder with less risk of breaking the hands. The flipside of that is more head/brain injuries.

Boxing refs also tend to let fights go on whereas mma refs will step in quickly and stop a fight to prevent excess injury.

Right.

Obviously on paper floyd blows Connor apart in a boxing match but what does floyd have left at 40 after having 2 yr off ? Ive been laughing at this fight even though I'm a massive CM fan, I've also followed floyd since well before he fought Hatton (I was there) in December 2007

The more I see, I think floyd has not taken this seriously and this could be his undoing, combined with age and inactivity.

I fancy Connor to absolutely overwhelm him with dirty awkward boxing in the first 3 rounds, ko rd 3

If he can't get him out then floyd will pick him off after that point and beat him up over the distance

Conor's been off for nearly a year himself... And remember that Floyd hasn't been sat around eating cake; he's still been training like a motherfucker.

Floyd is a cunt, but he's fucking good. I think Conor gets one chance to throw anything 'unusual' before Floyd gets it dialed in.
