    Just saw a pic on other thread about the metal bar implant Supporting her ulna bone (elbow) PVZ got

    The metal bar is exactly where you would impact a skull with the “blade” of the forearm (not the tip of the elbow though)

    So, there’s skin and there’s metal directly below (just trust me I know about this shit)

    Imo this is an unfair advantage

    Maybe someone could help me with the pic, thanks
     
  2. If it is, then is not an unfair advantage to Paige. She is going to eventually fight a can to get out of her contract and then retire so she can post on instagram.

    When Tim Sylvia had his arm broken by Mir, he speculated that the surgery would end up being advantageous due to the metal implants. From what I understand, he was able to compete freely as he had in the past, and never failed a physical as a result of the implant (though other health concerns eventually stopped him from being able to complete).

    She’s looking for a can to finish her contract then she’ll go to Bellator where she’ll fight the ultimate cans

    As far as I understand it, having part of your body held together by a slim titanium implant is a liability rather than an advantage.

    Depends on where the implant is placed though
    But yep that’s what I’m saying, commissions don’t seem to care but that doesn’t mean it isn’t an unfair advantage

    It's not an advantage at all.

    Metal is not bone and does not react the same way to impacts. Nor does it interact with the rest of your tissues or biological systems the way bone does.

    Living bone is a more resilient material than metal, and is far superior for every application in fighting.

    You should stop reading comic books, watching Marvel movies, and pick up a biology textbook.

    I've had both my knees replaced and I can assure you, if I were to knee you in the face it would hurt me a lot more than it would hurt you. Titanium knees aren't as cool as they sound.

    I have a metal plate on my ulna, closer to the wrist. Perfect for blocking head kicks

    All WMMA fighters should get a metal impant in their forearms.

    Might actually let them finish some of these fights

    In a few years fighters will break down their whole body to become a force step by step.

    Definitely an advantage. I'm steel reinforced and now have an incredibly high pain tolerance. Unbreakable...tested and passed.
