    How many at UFC have had concussions & hid them since
    former Invicta fighter Veronica Rothenhausler had accumulated
    two that she hid even with them back to back and was forced
    to retire do to post concussion syndrome.The reason i ask is
    concussions are no joke if you get one.

    I'd be shocked if there is any fighter on the roster who hasn't had a concussion. I'm not even a fighter and I've had like 5 or 6.

    If you haven't had a concussion you're not really a man.

    I'd guess most.

    The bigger issue is how many times does a fighter get dinged in training and not say anything. Accumulated mild concussive blows that might not give you concussion symptoms is really the biggest issue in terms of developing CTE. If you are taking 100+ strikes to the head every sparring session, that isn't good either.

    I think the more likely scenario is a lot of people don't even know they suffered a concussion. They simply chaulk it up to having their "bell rung" and continue on training as usual, which is where it get really dangerous.

    Sooooo.... The reason you asked is because "concussions are no joke if you get one"?


    What about if you don't get one? Are they funny?

    What other subjects do you make threads about simply because they aren't jokes?

    Staph? Reebok Kits? Aniks haircut?
