MMA has overtaken Boxing

Throughout the last 10 years, the UFC has come from a company that was 40 million dollars in debt to a bilion dollar company and one of the most fastest growing sports in the world. MMA was competing against a very strong and well-known industry known as boxing because of it’s history. MMA is the new and exciting sport while boxing is turning into the old and boring sport.

Boxing is a very limtited sport because all the sport deals with is punching. MMA deals with punhing, kicking, wrestling, submissions, elbows, karate, and many different styles to choose from. As Joe Rogan would say ” MMA is the sport of fighing while Boxing is the sport of punching. Dana White has took the sport and brought it to another level. They offer free fights and television and their pay per views are much more exciting to watch wih people.

UFC has took over boxing as being the pay-per-view kings and you get what you pay for. You get a great night of fights and while boxing jus focuses on one fight the whole night, the UFC has 5 fights on the main card. Boxings biggest name would probably be Floyd Mayweather while UFC’s would probably be GSP. Floyd Mayweather is considered to be a fighter who ducks oppenents while GSP fights whoever they put in front of him. Floyd Mayweather is also very controversial and has many legal troubles. GSP is a superstare and a role model. The UFC’s top superstar has a much better image thn Boxing’s and that is just one little reason why the UFC has taken over Boxing.
