Guest blogger Gilbert Martinez recounts the greatest quote I’ve ever heard regarding MMA fighters vs boxers, delivered by Bernard Hopkins over UFC 133 weekend:

“You cannot take a shark out of the water and throw him in the jungle vs a lion. He will be destroyed. And if you put a lion in the water vs a shark the lion will be destroyed. Just like boxing and MMA – they are two totally different animals. We need to remember that.”

Wisdom! And quite a 180 from the kind of stuff he used to say.
