Boxing is better than UFC for many reasons. First, boxing has been around much longer than MMA and has arguably more technical skill involved. The punches in boxing are much more precise and require a great amount of technique in order to be effective. Furthermore, boxing is extremely safer than UFC. In boxing, it is forbidden to hit the back of the head and the neck area, so the chance of the fighter being seriously injured is much lower compared to other contact combat sports such as MMA. Boxing also has a longer-term effect on lifestyle compared to UFC, due to its slower nature and constant training and skill-building.
