I forget the cat's name, but he fought Nick Diaz and actually threw some straight punches! He was outweighed by a couple of weightclasses, but he gave a good showing for an MMA guy.

Apparently he sparred with Andre Ward some in preparation. It was pretty obvious since he was able to slip a lot of shots too.

As someone who is a fan of all combat sport martial arts (Boxing is a martial art for those who like to act up),

Unless you strike in the premise of MMA you might not understand how the punching style becomes some inherently different due to the distance and the stances and the ability to take other shots other than head and body punches. The advantages of punching for MMA and disadvantages of punching for boxing become VERY evident.

It's been working out pretty well for Anderson Silva.
