I am interested in those who have trained both in MMA and boxing. Let me illustrate a hypothetical: One fighter is a UFC fighter who has a World Heavyweight Championship Fight upcoming (MMA Contests at the championship level are fought at 5 rounds at 5 minutes each.) That is 25 minutes of physical combat for the MMA fighter.) Boxers at the world championship level fight at 12 three minute rounds for 36 minutes.

What types of preparation do you go through for each sport? Are their training techniques that you should do in one sport that you should not do in another? In preparation, what was more enduring and stressful?

The training is different. For MMA you have to not only work out your upper body, but you also legs. You have to be able to use your legs in order to fight off your opponent, and for submission holds. You also have to have to work on kicks, not just punches.
