ESPN's PTI fellas obviously have not actually sat down to watch a MMA fight. To say that Boxing is this sweet science and MMA is barbarous is ignorant. Boxing is dudes throwing punches, MMA is about boxers vs martial artists vs wrestlers vs brawlers. To train to fight a guy that may not knock you out but instead submit you by locking up your ankle takes skill, that is a science.
Needless to say I am pumped for tonight's fights!
