    Some of them are probably doing worst from not being able to afford bills than CTE or related. Which is even sadder

    How early are we talking?

    A majority of fighters have knees/neck/back/joint problems + brain damage.

    I'm not counting all the scar tissue and staph infections either.

    TLDR: MMA is rough on the human body.

    I'm sure Ken Shamrock will be having his food fed to him in the next few years.

    royce was all about skill.

    he was probably chosen because he was the best guy for the job - which was a real bjj demonstration against other arts.

    Many have real problems. Much of it from the from the fight game but also other health issues not associated with it. You find the same in boxers and football players after their careers. Some of the stories have been quite sad.

    Jon Hess wants to come back and thinks UFC fighters are all soft and the sport is pussified now . Also thinks he will knock Stipe out cold in like a minute. Well he is undefeated in UFC so he could do it
