    So Matt’s not greatest example. I can agree with that.

    If every person who’s ever fought professionally had beat there SO, it still wouldn’t be proof of TBI leading to violent behavior. Possibly ppl that are prone to violent behavior just happened to be also prone to domestic abuse. Personally I do believe TBI can lead to violent episodes, but I’d like to see more scientifically stringent studies on the matter other then just observing a handful of MMA fighters behavior.

    These threads are retarded and should be banned imho.

    Mental illnesses can obviously develop even without brain injuries, and genetics probably play the biggest role.

    Right on, I'm not really arguing against MMA causing brain trauma and there being a correlation between brain trauma and mood swings, impulsiveness, agression, poor decision making etc... That's all pretty accepted nowadays.

    I'm just arguing against TS' poor ability to form a logically sound argument, to form a coherent sentence, to understand anecdotal vs statistically significant evidence, the scientific method etc.. etc..

    Like War Machine could be a fuck up because of MMA, or he could just be a fuck up. There is no way to test or prove that.
    Same as a historically significant storm blowing through a city. Climate Change is proven based on scientific methods, and models show that change will lead to more historic storms. But that doesn't mean that THIS one particular storm is directly caused by climate change.

    His mum was a drug addict who left him to raise his siblings whilst he was a kid and he watched his dad die whilst he tried to perform CPR on him. Keep trolling buddeh.

    Every time someone does a bad thing they get an excuse if they’re involved in a sport that gives damage. The old Hernandez excuse. The poor boy suffered from cte!!

    Based on his book Matt Hughes was an asshole before he got into mma. But I think the abusing his wife part is new and post train accident.

    Yeah I’ve already said he’s not a good example. It’s because we don’t really know if he abused his wife or previous partners. That’s not really something you write about in a book or talk about in general. It’s possible he has been abusive to his wife in the past or past partners but even then it would be impossible to attribute it to head trauma vs just being an abusive prick.

    Lemme know what you think. Looks like shreds of roast beef that hang down a bit to far. I’ll overlook it because that butt is scrumptious however.

    I wonder though, how many had undiagnosed mental problems/violent tempers prior to fighting?

    I’m sure a significant number since in normal populations many go undiagnosed. Fighting attracts those who crave physical engagement.

    Boo hoo! Lots of people have had troubled upbringings but very few do what War Machine did.

    I agree with your point, it's the only part that is different. I think brain trauma is a problem. I also think that only a percentage of people in MMA are violent. I'm saying it's the violent aspect of the sport that draws that type of person into the sport. For example, I don't expect Rich Franklin to be physically assaulting anybody. Thiago Silva, Hector Lombard, War Machine, Julian Lane (Let me Bang Bro) are a different story.
