A couple weeks before the Mayorga/Vargas fight, HBO put them on via satellite during another match so they could talk shit and promote it.  About halfway through, Mayorga lit up

Exactly.  It's like comparing Football to Rugby, the debate on what is better is pointless and tiresome.  I like both MMA and boxing, for different reasons, because they're different sports.

and don't confuse Mayorga with a typical boxer either. . .  his training consists of a daily pack of cigarettes and tequila shots

Just some points to address multiple posts in this thread

If the guy was 6'9" and only 170, chances are he probably dehydrated himself to make the weight, which obviously leads to less water and protection for the brain, making it more likely to be injured

Also MMA was regulated in SC just a short time ago, so there's a chance the Ref didn't stop it when it should have been due to being too inexperienced.  I've been to an MMA event (I live in SC) a couple months ago and know people that fight in them and have fought in other states, and things aren't nearly as smooth yet.

I like boxing MUCH more than MMA, but boxers get head injuries more often and will continue to get it more often because usually traumatic brain injuries are due to MULTIPLE repeated punches, not necessarily the amount of the force.  With 4oz gloves, chances are if you get blasted once, you go down and game over, and it's typically nothing long-term.  With 12oz padded gloves, it's much easier to get pounded repeatedly over multiple rounds and still not drop.  Chances are even though guys like Chuck Liddell and Tim Sylvia have glass chins, they won't follow in the footsteps of 15-20+ year old boxers who wind up drooling on themselves around age 65.  Padding is meant to protect your hands, not your opponents head.

+400 at matchbook, other side is -420, so you could probably get +410 if you put an offer out there
