The results are in and it seems that the UFC although may make more annually. could not compete with the pay per views head to head. We are not there yet MMA fans but it wont be long now until boxing will be a sport that gets the views of boxing. The Mayweather vs Marquez fight was 15 rounds of “Dancing with the Star” when UFC 103 did not have one fight that went all 3 rounds. Regardless of the excitment in each sport and how the two sports compare to each other, boxing got the upper hand and won this pay per view battle.

HBO released yesterday that the Mayweather/ Marquez fight took in a total amount of 1 million views. At 50 dollars a piece and for 15 boring rounds of dancing, I bet a lot were upset when they could have been watching UFC 103, but hey, I’m bitter about this. UFC 103 to in an estimated 400 thousand PPV’s which gave the world of boxing a landslide victory but I still have hopes!

At $45, a fight fan could save $5 and watch more exciting fights with the UFC and I think after 15 boring rounds of boxing, boxing fans might just say f that. Boxing has 2 or 3 guys that will give exciting fights when the MMA world has too many to count. Boxing is on thier way out and after seeing the display of this past boxing bout, I’m sure that our MMA world will continue to grow because like the stats say “MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world today”.

For anyone interested in where I recieved these numbers, here is where you can find them.

Herschel Walker should fight Chuck Zito in his Strikeforce debut

Chuck Zito

Chuck Zito

Notorious tough guy Chuck Zito has always expressed interest in fighting MMA and even himself at 56 years old says if he’s going to do it, he’s gotta do it soon. Zito who is most known for his Italian wise guy role Chucky Pancamo, is also known for his famous Scores knock outs of both Jean-Claude Van Damm and poker television host AJ Benza. So you might ask if he would actually be good in the cage and my answer is hell yes to the ex Hells Angel.

Not only is Chuck Zito street certified much like Kimbo Slice, this man has much more experience and skill than Slice and look where he is. Zito fought in the New York Golden Gloves so that very well explains how he is able to KO guys with one punch. Aswell as having been a contender in the New York Golden Gloves, this man has extensive skills in mix martial arts being a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This guy is very well rounded and was even before the craze to be well rounded in MMA began. So why do I think he would beat Herschel Walker?

Herschel Walker on paper has nowhere near the skills that Chuck Zito posseses and yet he is the talk of the town in Strikeforce. Both men would be heavyweight contenders and this would fare to be a great match. Although Zito is 9 years older than Walker, I believe the man when he says that he feels good and is ready to go. So how about it Strikeforce? Let’s see these two go at it.

Below I have included a video of an interview The Fight Nerd had with Zito this past August. Today I will be emailing both Chuck Zito at http://www.ChuckZito.com as well as Strikeforce. I’m going to try aswell to get the word out via my twitter http://www.twitter.com/ThatMMAGuy aswell as a friend of mine who interviews MMArtists http://www.facebook.com/aarontruteweles
