    Didn't watch the video but the chick in the thumbnail wasn't allowed to quit. If she did, I would have made $160. Her coaches suck.

    BJ was the most high-profile and most memorable to me. Overall, MMA has a problem of a macho mentality that views stopping the fight as dishonorable. This leads to the Raquel Pennington situation and others like it. For all of its flaws, I feel boxing does a better hob of putting the fighter’s health and career first, ahead of appearances and ideals.

    Did it change when the first person died in a high level boxing fight? Same might happen in MMA eventually. If someone died in the UFC, it would drastically change the culture in the sport.

    Plenty of MMA fighters have died from the sport.
