    It was a report about an active duty soldier who had a stroke after being choked out in a BJJ match. I don't think you can draw that conclusion

    Microwaves can cause brain damage, Anything can cause brain trauma at end of the day. Don’t need no damn study from doctors, studies and ect. To know that.

    The literature linking CTE or [Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Injury] and repeat execution of choking techniques in MMA and grappling sports is nonexistent. This lack of evidence is especially significant given the hundreds of thousands of athletes, both past and present, who participate in choke-inclusion sports worldwide.

    I understand and respect the authors bringing up choking techniques in the context of this article, but it would be most reasonable to bring up as a question for possible further study with inclusion of the above information as opposed to likely falsely theorizing that the particular presented patient may have suffered some of his CTE-related neurological decline from repeated chokes.
