    maoris are just very large people, very heavily built. if the population of new zealand was a bit larger, i think we'd be seeing many more champs from NZ.

    I read a good article a while back about training neck flexibilty/agility to make yourself more knockout resistant. I'm having a tough time finding it right now though. The gist of it was that although strength is important, it is more important to be able to roll with the blows easily. Clearly a more limber neck would comfortably be able to do this far better than a stiff one. I don't know for a fact if this is true or just theory, but it seems to make some sense. I'll try to track down the article again later when I have less to do.

    i got this from a magazine i have:

    being knocked out can also cause rotational injuries to the brain. Rotational injuries often cause more damage than linear ones.

    when rotational injuries occur the skull starts spinning, then the brain starts spinning, then the skull stops (because it hits the ground or by neck structures). The brain which is still spinning inside the skull then decelerates. Damage also occurs to the brain because of pulling from where the spinal cord and other nerves are attached to the brain. this is therefore associated with cell damage, rupture of cell membranes and blood vessels, loss of fluid from the cells into the surrounding tissue and subsequent bruising of the brain. swelling is a major part of the problem.
    as far as your actual brain goes, you can't "train" it to be resistant to knockouts.

    Sure you can, use simple commands like "sit" and "shake". THen work your way up to "dance", "eat" and finally... "don't let yourself get punched" and "hide like a girl in the face of violence".

    Mark Hunt is Samoan. Lucky you made that mistake outside his presence.

    you're right actually, i forgot about that.

    a lot of polynesians who come to australia are often asked "so you're maori?" to which they reply for the millionth time "no, i'm tongan/samoan/etc".
