Top 5 Boxers We’d Love to See in the UFC

As soon as MMA picked up some steam as a sport a question surfaced regarding the superior pugilist, a mixed martial artist or a boxer. Though there have been a few oddball opportunities to see the scenario play out, such as James Toney taking on Randy Couture in the UFC, there has never been a bout between two top shelf competitors with each representing one of the respective disciplines. Though any boxer entering the cage would need a crash course in takedown defense, there’s no doubt the cream of the crop could succeed on MMA’s biggest stage based on the power, precision, and overall athleticism possessed by each individual.
