    these aneurysms and PVT blood clot can kill people out of nowhere but at least the pvt gives you some signs but it can kill you almost immediately at random.

    This. My mother in laws funeral that just happened was over $17000, and that was an inexpensive one with a cremation. Would have been way more expensive with burial.

    It's more than likely that MMA contributed to it....even if it was something else, getting smashed in the head for sport, can't be good. Blood ballooning in the brain, my grandpa died from it. He had an extremely high temper and ate a lot of rich, delicious food. Stress was also bad for him, so imagine if he took up MMA to get hit in the head....it'll make it much worse.

    RIP

    There is absolutely no reason to say that. You're trying to come up with lifestyle reasons as to why an aneurysm might happen to a person, like head trauma, stress or poor diet when in fact it could simply be a genetic predisposition or plain bad luck.

    It's all of the above, babe. I know what punching someone in the head to knock them the F out as a sport does....now multiply that by 10 if it's a full time job.....and so does one of the ladies at my gym, who's a medical doctor doing specifically this, head trauma research for NIH. But I didn't even need her to tell me this, to know it's true.

    Then how do you explain the many, many MMA fighters and boxers who have taken far more head trauma and for far longer than Katy Collins did but aren't dropping dead suddenly from brain aneurysms or the mostly sedentary people who do?

    Try reading what I said again, babe. Start with.... "It's more than likely that MMA contributed to it". Obviously, everyone's different and can take different levels of head trauma. Just like cigarettes, it doesn't guarantee lung cancer, but certainly not good for you.
