Why do boxers have so much more fights than mma guys?
That's just how it is
Because boxing is an open field unlike MMA which works in closed promotions.
Once you arrive in the UFC or Bellator or whatever, you get matched up with the right guys and can quickly get a shot at the rankings if you keep winning.
Meanwhile in boxing you have to make a name for yourself by having a good record, which includes a lot of cans to start.
Also, back in the days boxers used to fight way more often because they didn't know abou CTE and shit,current top boxers also only fight 1 to 3 times a year.
Also in MMA there are more potential injuries.
And why does boxing not have greedy promotions?
They didn't know getting your face bashed in for 10 rounds was bad. The fighters weren't the only ones with CTE
Try 110 rounds
MMA is far more destructive to the body. Boxing is more dangerous to the brain, but you don't get leg kicked and elbowed.

Just look at the faces of boxers and MMA fighters after their fights.

Bad comparison. Gloves in boxing are literally designed to minimize chances of cuts. Look at the face of bareknuckle boxers and they look way worse than either MMA or boxers.
