    Is getting hit in the head healthy? Of course not. But sometimes, people get afflicted with mental illness and it has nothing to do with fighting. Not EVERYTHING is related to MMA. It sounds like Tony is dealing with some form of psychosis and mania. There’s no literature on bipolar/schizophrenia symptoms deriving from fighting. Just cool it with the CTE talk, it’s not always that simple. Just because Joe Rodan thinks everything is related to head trauma doesn’t mean it’s true.

    Actually these symptoms are apart of cte Tony is still relatively young tho so I'm not sure this is what's causing him to act erratic as cte doesn't typically show itself at such a young age.

    High school kids get CTE from playing high school football. And you don't think CTE should be prominent in a sport where you get struck in the head 10's of 1000's of times?

    TS has CTE.

    Of course cte is prominent in the sport. Mental illness, in general, is prominent in human nature. Correlation does not equal causation.

    CTE is real. We need to wake up to the immense trauma we inflict on each other as children. That's where it all starts. Sure that Dodge ball hitting you in the face seemed innocuous, BECAUSE YOU ARE BRAIN DAMAGED YOU IDIOT YOU DONT KNOW ANY BETTER. PILLOW FIGHT? BRAIN DAMAGE. WATER BALLOON, YOU BETTER FUCKING BELIEVE THATS BRAIN DAMAGE. WHERE DOES IT END.

    Sounds like he's dealing with a Crystal Meth addiction to me but schizophrenia is also a possibility, Bi-polar not so much.
    Paranoid delusional psychosis or Crystal Meth is my guess

    Perhaps I am missing something. I have seen this posted a couple times. But wouldn't Meth show up pretty heavily in a state of the art drug test?

    Tony probably just stayed up for days drinking energy drinks. At least he didn’t take the police on a car chase lol

    When was he last tested? Drugs like Meth don't stay in your system long, only like 3 days (I'm guessing on that based on what I know about coke).

    It will be pretty obvious pretty quickly though if this is the case cause by the sounds of things it's pretty serious and usually rock bottom comes before a resurgence. He won't be able to hide or control it for long.

    Do a search on any reputable scientific database and you will see thousands of journals linking brain damage and CTE to mental illness. Aggression, psychosis, depression etc are all associated with CTE.

    Lol do you think the human body was built to take sustained damage to the head? Your brain is fragile. CTE is very very real
