” Hold on, the UFC and Chuck Liddell didn’t escape Floyd’s venom. “UFC ain’t [censored],” he said. “It ain’t but a fad. Anyone can put a tattoo on their head and get in a street fight.” He singled out UFC poster boy Chuck Liddell for an extra overhand right. “We should put Liddell against a good heavyweight, under Mayweather Promotions, and if Chuck wins, then I’ll give him a million dollars out of my own pocket.” PBF then shoe-shined all MMA fighters. “These are guys who couldn’t make it in boxing,” he said. “So they do (MMA). Boxing is the best sport in the world and it’s here to stay.” Love him or hate him, think he’s just speaking truth or he has a rampant ego and you’re hoping Oscar has a pin on May 5th, and will pop Floyd’s bubble, you must admit this about PBF: he’s entertaining when he gets that mouth in high gear.

Note how Floyd isn't talking about getting in a MMA ring, though.

Hard to talk trash when someone has you in a RNC, huh?

While I'll admit that a boxer has excellent cardio as they need to for the amount of rounds they have and the length of time per round, I see them as two different sports. While a MMA guy who steps in the boxing ring would have much difficulty I also "know" a boxer would have equal or greater problems stepping into a MMA ring.

He can flap his gums all he wants because it is nothing. I like boxing still, I used to be a huge boxing fan and grew up watching this since the 70's. I however have to admit I find MMA much more entertaining and exciting as I believe the world does as boxing viewers are not as plentiful as they used to be but MMA fans have vastly increased. I think there is room for both of them but for a boxer to flap his gums putting down the MMA and in particular Chuck Liddell of the UFC, I see this nothing more then promotion of his next event. He has created controversy and that gets around, just like it has made its way to FA.com. Now many people will be more in tuned to watch if he gets his butt handed to him or not.

Is boxing the best sport in the world? If I was a boxer then I'd say yes. If I was a MMA fighter I'd say MMA was the best. If I played football I'd say football was the best. You get the idea ... but when it boils down to it the fans get the ultimate say and the sports they like the best will be more in your face and readily available to watch, especially if that sport has good promoters.

I would argue that todays elite MMA fighters have cardio that could hold their own with a boxer.

I would also say that a mma fighter would fare better(not win) in a boxing ring than a boxer would fare in a mma cage.

What do people expect?

MMA is a threat to boxing, it is likely that if MMA continues to grow, boxing revenues will fall, therefore boxers need to trash talk MMA. Anyway, MMA fighters have been trash talking boxing for years.

This is about media coverage and TV revenues. It has nothing to do with percieved levels of skill in fighting.;

Why would a boxer or any fighter fight for less the $100k when he makes multi-millions per fight. Doesn't make sense to him or me. Skills like his if he got some ground skills he tear up the MMA ring, but why would he do that unless he got too old to Box.

I enjoy watching MMA/UFC maybe more then boxing, but in truth Boxing is were the MONEY at, lets just keep it real.

Now Chuck Liddile ain't doing too bad, but you couldn't compare his earinings to Floyd Mayweather's.


And Oscar my boy, but he ain't got a chance if Floyd don't slug with him, if he can avoid that Delahoya left hook, this is Floyds fight to win. But win or lose he going to make Millions $$$$.

It ain't bragging if it's True. But I do wish he had some restain.

See, that's where I have the problem with Mayweather running his mouth. He HAS the millions to burn, so if it's really about the lack of skill in the UFC (as he claims), why wouldn't he go in there and shut everybody up? Consider it "giving back to the fans" or something. Unless he is worried about getting his a$$ handed to him.......

I don't doubt Mayweather has some skills ... but boxing only. He would be torn up if he entered the octogan ... there is no question. He can flap his gums all he wants as it means nothing.

You are correct, boxing is where the money is at. Win or lose he will make money hand over fist whereas even the top UFC fighter will never make that amount for one fight.

I'm an Oscar De La Hoya fan myself so I will be backing Oscar all of the way. Is Oscar beyond his prime though, we shall see. This Saturday we will know the outcome and I hope that Mayweather gets his butt handed to him.

On the food chain of combat athletes, as far as $$$ goes, he is right. Boxing is generations ahead of MMA. That doesn't mean it's closer to fighting or that he or any other boxer is a better fighter than any MMA pro however.

They are different sports and MMA is in it's infant stage still. The next ten years are going to be downright frightening with the level of skill you can expect to see in MMA.
