Bob Arum on UFC surpassing boxing: “Their most popular fighter is a woman”

download (10)I think that it is very clear that mixed martial arts has made big strides in becoming the number one combat sport. The Ultimate Fighting Championship popularity has continued to grow and many consider watching their brand of fighting instead of watching boxing. In September, the sport of boxing will lose their biggest attraction in Floyd Mayweather and no one else comes close to generating a buzz like him. Promoter Bob Arum was asked about the possibility of UFC surpassing and his answer I’m sure will make a few people angry.

 

 

What Arum said might be true, but he cannot denied that UFC is gaining momentum to take over the number one spot. This situation will get very interesting once Mayweather retires from boxing.
