I meant a boxing match inside the UFC cage.
People always feel the need to vindicate MMA by saying "oh, Silva would kill Jones in an MMA fight".... Yeah, we know that. It was not Jones who challenged Silva to an MMA fight, it was Silva who challenged Jones to a Boxing match.
What it would hurt is the credibility of MMA's fighters in the debate between Boxing and MMA in the media world. Is that big of deal to fans like us? Not really.
