    That's better. Still fails to quantify knockdowns in boxing that would involve equivalent punishment to a TKO in MMA, which over-reports MMA or under reports boxing incidents. Counting knockdowns, most boxing matches would have at least one "concussion-like injury," and the average may come out near or above 1:1.

    Fighters volunteering to fight is irrelevant to this discussion. If they weren't volunteers we would be having a completely different discussion.

    Responding to he macho talk about fighters choosing to take the risk. I assume that means they think all risk is ok. Anyone involved in MMA knows there are risks. Understanding risks and studying long term effects is still a desirable thing to do. Mitigating long term risk is not going to neuter the country. Also, as a fan of the sport I respect the athletes that provide the entertainment; putting effort to understand risk is a good thing as far as I am concerned. This all applies to football also.

    yeah ive thought this to be a bit of bunk for a while now. people say "oh well when one fighter is out the fights over" but fact is, when one fighter is out in an mma fight its often by brutal, prolonged beatdown. in boxing you can take a knee- in mma, you get this-

    Oh please marketing hype or studies have little to do with fighters deciding to fight. That **** is more for the public and to debunk people like Liberman who call MMA human cockfighting. There is a move by certain people in this country to pussify everything.

    Nope, well at least not in a cage lol. I do however engage in high risk activities, and have broken bones, had concussions etc. I never needed a study to tell me that doing things that cause impact such as getting punched in the fucking head came with consequences.

    Boy, you'll never be as manly as me so there's no need to preach to the choir about the peoples of the US of A not being fucking hardcore enough. I know a lack of hardcore when I motherfucking see it. Just like I know a lack of book learnin', which is what I see when I look at your posts.
