Are MMA Fighters Climbing the Ranks Too Fast?

Sherdog.com has a great article comparing mixed martial arts to boxing–no, not which one is better, more popular, will outlast the other, etc…but on how boxers generally have more experience in the ring before they’re thrown into the big matches. For instance, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir fought twice before entering the UFC. He was 7-1 when he was crowned champ. Georges St-Pierre had a similar ride to the top, being only 7-0 before going up against Matt Hughes for the Welterweight title.
