no matter where you go, Bruce Lee always wins
really depends on the rules you apply to the match
is it an MMA style fight or a Boxing match, one will lend an advantage to the other.
anyone knows if mma fighter practice The plus ( exercise. its an exercise use to establish footwork that most boxers learn
but seeing as MMA is most similar to a "showing of skill" type fight, then MMA all day. they train in numerous styles and have more options mentally and physically
A martial artist has more options, suck as kicks, uses of different parts of the body like knees, elbows, throws, limb grabs, takedowns etc. Wheres the boxer relies on punches and dodges. Like someone said before, one punch from a boxer could end it, and vise versa. It really comes down to who is the better fighter.
Martial artist ass niggas will kick you in your lip before you get a punch off.
We do it for the people.

how many MMA fights have you watch that ended with striking LOTS! don't sleep on hand skills it is an important element of the game, I think it does boil down to the fighter & his game plan, endurance, coach, referee even there is a lot that goes into these fights MMA or BOXING, however a MMA fighter has more tricks in the bag so he defiantly has the advantage
the rules still haven't been properly established here... but if it's anything other than a straight boxing match, the mma guy wins easily...
if the boxer has to avoid anything other than punches, watch his hands drop and the mma guy come right over the top with a knock out punch or kick... if it goes to the ground the boxer gets completely embarassed... and also, the boxer isn't used to being hit with mma gloves...
if a boxer gets knocked down he's used to a standing count, if an mma guy gets put down, his opponent jumps on him and lays into him... so even it it's about purely striking (including knees, elbows and kicks) the mma fighter has too much arsenal and very likely more composure under attack too...
thread should be renamed to
Bruce Lee vs Muhammad Ali
Martial Artists have the upper hand due to the fact that they are trained in numerous types of fighting.
For example, let's say that a fight broke out b/w a skilled boxer and a skilled martial artist. The boxer is 195lbs and stands at 6'2'' while the martial artist is 186lbs and stands at 5'10''. The martial artist has a black belt in jujutsu and he's extremely FAST. However, the boxer is a lot more conditioned that the martial artist.
The thing that people have to keep in mind is that Boxers need space in order to fight because that's how they're trained while martial artists are trained in both open space and close space.
The martial artist will win because he has the upper hand.
