There's a good reason every time we incorporate a Martial Art into our MMA system. The reason we use Western Style Boxing is because it's use of angles and the leverage of weight to punch harder is the best way to do it in the world period. Head movement, angles and putting your weight behind each punch is something that's absent in many other Martial Arts, and it's been refined to the highest level in Boxing. Including the "Sweet Science" into our Mixed Martial Arts has made our fighters more elusive in our defense of take downs and strikes, it's increased our mobility, it's footwork puts us into better positions to strike and it's made us punch harder and faster. I account the success of our Muay Thai fighters, many holding title belts, to this integration of Boxing into our striking.
