    ah...but that handful will make up the bulk of the UFC's numbers for the whole year.

    zuffa is still chasing numbers that boxing hit 10 years ago.

    Don't get me wrong...boxing has had cancer for the last few decades, but even so, it's a force to be reckoned with. It's not going anywhere.

    Boxing's "decline" is a bit of an exaggeration, as is "MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world."

    MMA isn't even a mainstream sport yet. It's got tons of issues to resolve before it becomes a mainstream standard, and with too many egos grabbing for dollars instead of trying to build the quality of the sport itself, it's unlikely to progress much beyond the mediocrity unified rules currently represents.

    Boxing may decline, but it will be a LOOOOOOONG time before MMA catches up.

    I didn't say that she would school him every time or evem most times, but it could happen, and it could happen more often than most think. I've got a bias towards grappling for sure, but I don't think I'm being ridiculous when I say great grappling beats best striking sometimes.

    Yes I was but I would pick her in a real fight too.

    I have only read the last page and don't know how this came about but it is entirely possible that rousey clinches and trips then arm bars him before he lands a ko shot. With a gi on it would be even more plausible.
