    It sound ridiculous to think a boxer could take a UFC champion. Maybe if Floyd spent time learning to sprawl? I still don't see him having a chance but the general public seems to think he'd win

    Mayweather is stupid fast but not THAT fast. Lesser guys then sherk have gotten ahold of him in fights, tied him up.When sherk shot in all Floyd could do is hit him on the back of the head as he got scouped up and ass slamed.

    for those that train in mma, could any UFC/Pride guy stand up with a guy like mayweather? or is taking him down the only option they got?

    a solid kickboxer could take him apart with leg kicks.

    I love how the writer automatically assume that boxing > MMA in terms of standup fighting.

    take away those shield-like boxing gloves and add elbows, knees, clinch, kicks/ leg kicks and a boxer's rythm is useless

    I think Chuck would get absolutely destroyed fighting an elite boxer.

    I think he would. Chuck really is just a boxer. He doesn't do much else except for that wicked sprawl.

    Just b/c he beats most of his opponets with his superior spawl and better striking(don't forget chuck is a good kick boxer, something mayweather knows nothign about) doesn't mean thats all he can do. Chuck is a good wrestler and last time I knew for sure he was a bjj purple belt. Who knows what he is now.

    I'm not understanding why people think it'd be so hard to get back the punches to start grappling. People at my work think Sherk needs to be lucky to get past the punches to take him down.

    this is retarded. its two different sports. in an mma match, sherk would dominate. in a straight boxing match, mayweather would dominate.

    Yes, this is absolutely true. But this conversation is more about finding out which sport has the tougher athletes than about comparing the two sports. Floyd is basically calling MMA fighters wimps.

    See, when you put an MMA fighter in a boxing match, they are limited to which skills of theirs they may use, but when you put a boxer in a MMA fight, they can use all of the skills they have to their full potential.

    Mayweather thinks he'd dominate Sherk.

    "UFC's champions can't handle boxing. That's why they are in UFC." Mayweather said Tuesday from Las Vegas during a break in training. "Put one of our guys in UFC and he'd be the champion. Any good fighter, he'd straight knock them out."

    Edit: Mayweather thinks he'd dominate Sherk with MMA rules.

    The only boxer that could dominate MMA is Valuev because laying down he's still taller than everyone in the world while they're standin up.

    chuck is a black belt in koei kan karate so he has been exposed to ground fighting, take downs and striking for at least 12 years while he was a student under jack sabat. He is a really well rounded fighter just because he shows only one of his weapons doesnt mean he doesnt have others.
