Paulie better win this fight, because he is an actual pro boxer that has won titles whereas Connor is 0-1 in pro boxing. If Connor won it would be hilarious.

I’d watch a hybrid fight between mma and boxing but not straight crossovers again. The last boxer to kick mma ass was Jeremy Williams who went what 7-0? He handled mma pretty easily. Duran fought a hybrid match vs a 220lbs Japanese wrestler and lost but I think if it were no gloves that Duran would have Koed him instead of just the early knockdown. Yeah a hybrid match that doesn’t favor wrestlers works for me.

I think I've seen fights where it is mostly stand up but wrestlers are allowed to score takedowns. Once the wrestler scores a takedown though the fighters get back up to their feet, so they score their points & then it's back to stand up fighting. Cung Lee fought in an organization like this I believe.

Jeremy Williams went 7-0 & then retired because he knew couldn't compete at the highest level.

Well I’m biased towards boxing since I grew up in the 70-80s. I think that in a fight a good boxer wins 90% of the time. Unless he’s taken into his back. But in that scenario going for an eye is illegal. That’s why I think mma rules favor the grapplers. Either give the grappler to the count of 8 to submit or restand or get rid of the gloves and just use hand wraps to even it up. I think.

Why do we have to put up with this shit; a fight with Connor and Floyd was a big thing, but this has no relevance or importance what so ever!!
