Boxing fans respect history and discuss it daily. MMA fans not so much.

Post by iforgotmypassword on Fri Oct 31, 2014 4:28 am

If you go onto any boxing forum there will be threads about historic fights and fighters on the first page. Retired fighters sill have 10 page threads on them with active discussion. Boxing fans can recall small details about the historic fights.


You go on sherdog or mma.tv and no one talks about fights from 2011. Literally 100's of threads about Conor or Rousey or the next hype job. Maybe some threads discussing Brock's WWE run.

Why is this? Is it because Zuffa shits all over fighters like GSP the second they leave? The Zuffa HOF has Bonnar and Griffin. Two cans no one wants to rewatch years later.

MMA is a fad sport for the microwave era.

Boxing is a real sport with Olympic status and an illustrious history.

Yeah boxings been a sport and around 100s of years its devotion and followers span generations.

Mma as a sport is barely 50yrs old and does not have Olympic status and was never all out banned.

Mma has pretty much just gotten to the point where its even universally accepted as OK.

It doesn't help that guys like Dana do what they do and dismiss fighters history but its not realistic to compare the 2 fanbases.

MMA was never totally banned in the USA. Only a couple states banned it, and they only banned pro shows. In every state it was always legal to train mma.

Most countries have been accepting of mma.

mma being a fad sport + human trash running Zuffa =

The Zuffa fan has sped up the decline of mma

When it was banned in a few states it was also banned from TV and ppv.

It was also completely shit on by everyone including the government.

Mma had to fight to even be shown on TV and to this day still isn't legal in some states and countries.

It was never banned from tv.

True, It wasn't made available on most cable company ppv channels. This was more of a personal vendetta by Leo Hindrey a very powerful guy in the cable industry being anti-UFC. It was always available for purchase on DirecTV (satellite dish) ppv.

It was not shit on by everyone in the government. States like Mississippi, New Jersey and Iowa were running sanctioned shows before Zuffe ever came on the scene.

Not a whole lot but there were people in the mainstream media who gave mma good coverage.

boxing fans may respect history but let's not forget boxing is a very racist sport. if you ever go to a boxing event the crowds are segregated

how ever I think hard core mma fans respect fighters more ( i.e. Fedor, silva etc.)

Point being it has never been touted as prize fighting it was seen as human cock fighting for quite a while by the vast majority of major sports analysts and regular population.

Just because its on TV next to baseball and football highlights on fs1 doesn't mean its a respected sport or was ever seen as prestigious.

Mma has still not been universally accepted it's still not legal in places.

This thread isn't about which sport is more racist, though.

Boxing fans might be racist but boxing is not.

Floyd Mayweather : Black
Manny Pacquiao: Asian
GGG: Asian and Russian

Meanwhile Jon Jones is hated by the entire fan base and doesnt sell PPV's.

It was kind of hard for the almost all white fan base to be racist when the champs were Chuck Liddell, Arlovski and Rich Franklin.

Anderson was a PPV flop his entire career until he fought Chael.

If anything the sales and history show Boxing is multi racial while MMA strives for the white champ Example: Bork Lesnar.

Most MMA fans are white trash. Fact.

As Floyd once said, white guys couldn't dominate boxing, so they had to create their own sport, MMA.  

MMA fans are just as bad with the nationalist/racist tension. Recently on MMAStinker, you get threads like this one: http://mmalinker.com/forum/america-the-super-power-t127261.html

Boxing fans have more to respect its been around way longer with many more classic fighters to be held high.

The fact Dana shits on his own hall of famers and won't acknowledge the greatness of guys like fedor doesn't exactly spread the right sorts of attitudes amongst its fanbase.

Mma fans in general these days don't acknowledge or necessarily respect all the classic mma legends but that will change.

What history? MMA is what, 20 years old? Even the martial arts it is derived from are largely mid 20th century inventions. What little history MMA does have is dominated by factions and camps and favoritism that try to erase each other from history.

It's going to be long time yet before we even get to know the behind the scenes stuff and contracts let alone what and who were and were not historically significant. The 'legends' of the sport are still trying to get fights or are retired and going on interviews to try to get their version of events to be the real history. And like others said, this may all just be a passing fad for all we know. There is no history to speak of right now.

Yeah it's not an accurate comparison whatsoever mmas history is not even begun you can't compare a sport that's literally 100s of years older.

Very well put Hamilcar

So you agree then. The forum should be "Combat Sports" with mma as a sub-forum.

No because mma IMO is still a more well promoted sport you don't see boxing highlights after NFL NBA and NHL scores on fox sports or ESPN.

In Cali whenever a local fighter fights they do interviews on radio and even on news they have interviews I've never seen ANY boxer promoted on local media.

Mma is what brought us to this site Kickboxing and boxing are the sub forums for a reason.

You could say the same about boxing crowds. This is just nitpicking. Both sports have their collection of clueless retards, one moreso than the other.
