I wish Mixed Martial Artists would stop "calling out" famous Boxers...if they want to do it properly let them have a Pro Boxing career also...but not a dumbass media exploit just because they win in MMA or something

Well, I don't doubt that there are guys capable of doing both. Just like I am sure that there are some guys in the NFL who can hold their own on the basketball court, but none of them will be beating Kobe Bryant in a one on one game anytime soon.

I hate the whole if your a boxing fan you can't be an MMA fan and vice versa.. Dumb..I must stop Nicky before he gets beat up. Don't get me wrong I will still root for him, but he's acting a little too confident...He might need a slice of humble pie...He's still hot though...

Good analogy.

Anderson Silva would have at least been interesting. Diaz wouldn't last 2 min.

Michael Jordan was by far the greatest basketball player in the world, and barely hacked it in the minors. In fact, if his name wasn't MJ, he would have been cut from the minors as well. Diaz is slighlty above average in MMA and RJJ was a former p4p champion, winning belts in 4 weight classes and currently holding a record of 53-5 with 39 KO. Diaz is a f'ing idiot!

Boxers are boxers and ppl who train for MMA are fighters. My point being boxers need to stop calling themselves fighters. Of course a boxer would never want to make that transistion. I dont think i have even heard of any.

Marcus Davis, Chris Lytle are the only two that come to mind..., but I think both were dabling in subs and wrestling beforehand.
