    Any reported cases yet?

    Do we have enough data to determine the effects of combat sports on the female brain vs. the male brain?

    Dont think most of them would have the power bar borg/nunes/shev to cause it.

    theres only been about 5 fights where any actual damage occurred, itll be decades before theres enough data for a study like that.

    Randy's ex looked like hamburger after one of her fights, brain damage probably resulted.

    Less power (30-40%), thicker skulls (10%). Not gonna happen.

    Women typically don't engage in sports that result in brain trauma, as much as men do, so I'm sure comparisons are low. However, I think its fairly logical to assert that a female brain is as vulnerable to CTE has a males.

    You do realize that neither of those things exclude females from CTE, right?

    There isn't even enough data on mma on men's brains.

    This is just disguised fighter bashing. You can troll better than this.

    Didn't Cat Zingano suffer brain damage from her fight with Nunes? She was talking about it on JRE.

    Cat Zingano has problems, and yes of course they have the power to inflict bran damage, understand how soft and fragile our weak bodies are.
