    Yeah but tbf most boxers who are getting serious CTE are brawlers or stuck around too long.

    In MMA where motherfuckers have next to no defensive skills, tiny gloves, a million ways to bludgeon someone into a coma, and referees that wait until fighters have been sleeping for like 30 minutes before stopping the fight... You're going to see a loooooot more punch drunk fighters in the next few years trust that

    I also love the irony of how many cte threads and cte sympathy posts that go around, yet like 90% of posters also think tapping to strikes is a pussy move when you’re finished

    Anyone surprised by this is genuinely a fucking idiot
    If you sign up to get hit in the head for a living and you get hit in the head a lot, you'll suffer the consequences of getting hit in the head a lot

    I’ve seen the video and read the article. I used to watch Fisher fight all the time back in the day and I don’t have any sympathy for someone who literally chose fighting as a career path. He’s not some dirt poor kid from the favelas of Brazil fighting to survive, he had options. It sucks what happened to him, but it is what it is. He made his bed.

    It sucks for Fisher. But at the end of the day he did it to himself.

    Everyone? You must've missed the thread talking about Wanderlei Silva's book where he said he would have his trainer hit him in the head so he could get used to fighting from a dazed state. He also has said he thought getting hit more in training would prevent the knockout. Not all fighters know the risks.

    No one said you should but to act like MMA isn't a higher risk is going to prove foolish in the next few years when all of yesterday's stars are being pushed in a wheel chair drooling.

    It'll eventually become a big enough story that UFC will get stuck having to take measures to insulate from lawsuits and we'll end up with something way more padded than we have today. Just like any contact sport.

    Obviously my statement wasn't intended to gauge your personal emotional turmoil under the incorrect assumption a sherdogger is capable of basic human traits like empathy.

    Thread title makes this seem worse than what it is. He also says it’s something the UFC is aware of and they are reaching out and researching methods to combat/deal with it.

    Okay its part of the business than maybe orgs should be responsible for medical care to fighters with CTE.

    If people work on dangerous fields most of the time the company responsible is held as responsible.

    Pain doesnt mean injury or CTE though.

    Like ive been dropped by bodyshots but was usually well enough in short time.

    If 30 % for you is just going through the motions, then your 100% isnt gonna bust a grape.

    30% can still snap heads back a bit, bleed a dry nose, and mark you up... when you have fighters claiming their ufc fight was them at "70%" , 30 is more than enough for sparring. You dont need to KO each other. Just swing fast and hard enough to make it hurt to discourage people from taking it.

    I agree I'd like to see some sort of plan, but it's difficult to work out where they draw the line with it. I wouldn't expect them to give anything to someone who fought for them a couple of times for example, but the 15 fight vets, sure.

    Yeah. I’m just pointing out to people who may not have experience that no cte doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck sometimes. :)
