MMA also gives football and wrestlers something to do after college if they dont/cant go pro or to the olympics.
you say it takes more skill to be a mma fighter and then say that why nfl players are going pro in mma i think it kinda proves your point wrong if matt mitrione can cross over to mma and compete at the highest level after training a completly different sport for his entire life and be succesful after only a couple of years training..
He would not be able to do the same thing in boxing it would be impossible anderson silva wouldnt even be able to croos over to boxing and be successful it may take a variety of different disiplines to learn but at a far lower skill level in my opinion!
