None better -
I have trained a bit in Jitsiu and Judo. In real life, they don't have a place in a knock down dragout with an experience boxer who is going to hit you hard and fast between blinks. Since I have faced both, I have a pretty good idea. I can face a lower degree black belt in my younger days with reasonable success. But I do know that if the boxer is at least a semi pro or a club fighter, best chance is to just shoot them.
Very poor comparison since that was a boxing match, not a martial arts match. Yes Merriweather is a better boxer in the confined rules of a boxing sport match, but put him in a street fight with McGregor and Merriweather would get whipped.
Someone should have told this to all the good boxers who get consistently manhandled in MMA fights because their toolbox is far too shallow.
Or kick his legs out from under him. Or take him down and pound his face in. Or submit him. Or grab the plum and knee him in the face. Etc.
Nonsense. It's a matter of time before a grappler gets their hands on you, then the boxer is done.
Former IBF world champion boxer James "Lights Out" Toney (known for his fast hands) versus Randy Couture, who has a Greco-Roman wrestling background. All Couture needed was one shoot to get a hold of a toe and boxer is helpless.
Former IBF cruiserweight champion Arthur "King" Williams learning all about Muay Thai.
The "useless" jiu jitsu in Joyce Gracie versus Ologun:
More useless bjj, this time Renzo Gracie:
Boxing versus Muay Thai, someone should have told the boxer that he cannot be beaten without a shot.
Boxer versus freestyle wrestler
