elbows to the back of the head for sure. Those things are vicious and seems to rarely get called now a days so fighters are starting to do it more and more and it needs to stop.

It could possibly happen to Mir when he faces Overeem in a month's time.

It's all about money...

I think it's most likely going to be from a bad ref stoppage that's just way too late. Maybe they're caught unprepared, on the other side of the cage, or plain not paying attention, although the refs so far have been pretty on top of this possibility.
The other possibility, I think, would be from a choke. Sometimes from the camera angles and the way the fighters get tangled up it's hard to tell when/if someone's lost consciousness. A choke held too long could do serious damage.

Fuck, I didn't even think about that. That's the force of 2x your body weight landing on your neck. Makes me cringe just thinking about it

First death was when Big Nog knocked out Schaub and then instantly, a jiu jitsu god from the ancient times took over his body.
