Boxer vs. Mixed Martial Artist vs. Wrestler

Boxer vs. Mixed Martial Artist vs. Wrestler

There is no greater question in combat sports than which type of fighter is the most lethal. Some say boxer, many more say MMA fighter. And a few even say wrestler. Well, through careful research and study, you will learn right now who is the most dangerous, not in the ring, octagon or mat, but out in the real world.

To begin,  we will see about the boxer, trained to dodge and take hits, as well as deliver them. If a criminal decides he wants to get some easy money, he might want to rob someone. A trained boxer can take out a street punk by hitting him very hard, very often, as well as outlasting him in stamina, all while dodging every hit the guy throws at him. If he has a knife, the boxer can still dodge it better than the average joe, allowing him to escape.

An MMA fighter wakes up thinking about fighting, about delivering pain. So in the same situation, he would have a much larger arsenal than the boxer, he can punch, kick, or perform takedowns on the thug. He knows boxing, kung fu, taekwondo, karate and wrestling. Not to mention the fact that he too is trained to take hits and last a long time before tiring. The MMA fighter can out wrestle the knife wielding thug and reverse the attack.

A wrestler knows speed, and strength, he can lure the opponet into a trap and use his own moves against him. He will first reverse the gangster's attack, then take the thug to the ground, and put him in one of a vast arsenal of holds to where the thug will be helpless to escape. Armbar, headlock, he will get creative. We all know that these have a ton of respect pro fighters can beat the everday bully, but what about each other? What if a boxer pissed off a wrestler? Who would win?

Lets start with boxer vs MMA fighter, the two get into a fight in a bar, the cops are coming, not to much time to fight. The boxer might be able to take down the MMA fighter quickly, using only a few well placed punches, he also will dodge everything the MMA fighter has to give him right?  Wrong.

The MMA fighter can take him to the ground where he will have the advantage, and more often than not, its game over at that point. But heres where it gets twisted around, the boxer wont always allow the MMA fighter to take him down, he can actually use the fact that the MMA fighter is coming towards him against him. A good punch will place the boxer in the lead. So we know now, it can go either way, however, in most situations, the MMA fighter will win simply because he is trained to win fights, not score points. Plus the fact that he might already know boxing in addition to his other moves.
