Greatest thing I've seen today.
Dana meant that he'd put a call into his dealer for a pound of blow and some LSD for the party this weekend. Oh, Spencer Fisher? What were we talking about..?
Same guy that was disappointed that Izzy and Paulo didn't engage in a CTE inducing war for his entertainment. This is the kind of gratitude you expect. This is why I have not problem with "safe" fighters that lay and pray, or do Floyd Mayweather evasive tactics.
Moving goalposts? Fertittas made billions and cashed out. Fact.
The current owners have realized earnings and cash flow. Not capital appreciation.
He has the authorization to provide medical benefits, like short and long term disability.
Just watched the real time episode about psychedelics. Very interesting and potentially promising treatments. Who knew?
These drugs have been around for thousands of years.
Prepare for a lot more of these cases over the years.
I think it's easy to imagine it will only hit fighters who've been KO'd a lot but I figure it will also hit fighters who we consider to be pretty defensively sound.
Oh shit, forgot he was returning.
It sounded real bad in 2016 when even his wife admitted "His memory is not what it once was"
Good thing CTE doesn't happen to employees.
In contact and combat sports with head hits, this is the truth.
He's not wrong. Anyone who takes up a sport where the primary aim is to rattle the other guy's brain hard enough that it turns off has to know the long term health outcomes are pretty bleak.
It's hard getting older as a fan of this sport when you see all the young killers you loved to watch go to work years ago turn in to old slurring vegetables. Might be why I've eased off in recent years.
Shocked to my fucking core lol
fighters should have thought about that to begin with... WUT? It is not healthy getting in 15 minutes fights for a job????
I don’t think most MMA guys know the real risks, they look at boxing and think MMA won’t have the same consequences, but the truth is that MMA is so young we have no real clue how bad the end results will be.
If legends start dropping like flies you’ll see a change in attitude and mindset from the fighters.
It’s sad because the fighters are already up against the odds and mistreated, now imagine if you have to suffer devastating long term effects to go along with it.
People talk about repeated head trauma from boxing gloves, but we’ve seen what kind of damage Can be done with elbows and knees. MVP literally cracked Cyborgs skull open with a knee, we’re pretty fortunate to not have had too many major tragedies with our fighters.
Dedicate your life to this sport, get paid 10k to fight, get brain damage, get fired. That's the gig ...
Well you’re kind of right, but that’s still a brash and arrogant way of putting it considering you’re obviously a fan of the sport. It’s all good for fighters to provide you with hours of entertainment, but when they start showing severe health side effects as a result of the sport, then they can go fuck themselves and should know better?
I played football in HS and I knew the dangers and still played. I have been in my fair share of real fights and still carry some injuries from it. I have had 4 concussions from various shit.
Life is life.
It's just super glaring because he's fighting this very weekend on a nationally televised card and he's likely in the co-main solely because of reckless way he fights.
Again - no one is forcing him to fight but yeah, not a great look
Jesus. "The UFC isn't a career, It's an opportunity!......to get CTE, it's part of the gig"
