It's often been speculated that if any boxer could crossover it would be Lomachenko or Bud Crawford due to their wrestling backgrounds, maybe GGG. GGG and Crawford have both ruled out fighting MMA due to not doing well in sparring or wanting to be kicked.

Lomachenko on the other hand -

Those kicks aren’t that impressive at all for someone who’s in the gym all the time. He’s an amazing boxer but in the end you’ll never know how you do in MMA until you fight.

So many fighters who are above excellent in gyms who are mediocre come fight time.

Plus training multiple aspects will take away heavily from his boxing. You can expect him to lose via punches or even win via submission.

I think they are incredibly impressive considering it was his first ever MT session.

I disagree. Nothing wrong with those kicks especially when his primary skill is boxing.

If he wanted it, itd be his. He can wrestle too. Literally nothing he can't do.

Jesus christ, stfu.

It was his first ever MT session and they are incredibly impressive considering that. I've seen people train for one or two years in a MT gym and not be able to cycle their kicks like that.

I hope so Lomachenko is a fucking ninja. 

Talk about some superstar matchups that could go down if he could successfully cross over.

That shit would sell some PPVs.

Lomachenko is honestly the most impressive athlete I’ve ever seen compete. If that really is his first Muay Thai session, he has ungodly potential. 

 

Fuck Cejudo, Loma coming for that GOAT Combat sports athlete ASAP.

I can't think of another Boxer now or ever on Loma's level of Boxing skills iq. That can also kick like that. And can wrestle well too. Or at least has shown a compotency of wrestling. It's refreshing and fascinating to see this. I've always wanted to see a Boxer in their prime enter into MMA.

Fucking monster. You can tell that he has god tier fighting genetics. It's not even the fact that he's a world class trained athlete.

I have always believed we will see a Fighter in the future. That can win belts in both boxing and MMA at the highest levels. We haven't even scratched the surface yet in my humble opinion.

To start. At some point though you'll get a freak. Everyone thought it was super Sage but that didnt last long...

 

In the future there will be somebody with a head of granite and the right skill set to keep it standing.

This!! There has never been a truly great boxer on top of his game that decides to fight mma. There is just too much money in boxing vs mma. I hope Lomanchenko bucks this trend and goes for it. I would buy it.

Exactly, you’re not gonna get perfect technique on fifty kicks (or however many he did) unless you’ve been doing it since your childhood. Guy’s a phenomenal boxer. Glad to see someone like him branching out.
