    Wanderlei hit again by a moving vehicle early this month rererere-reconfirms excessive MMA training = negatively affecting life.

    In traditional karate that became extremely popular worldwide during the counter culture era, you are strictly taught to avoid getting hit. One punch kills and make no mistakes in defending it, they always said and reminded students of the fatal situations that might turn into reality any day.

    In MMA, you're required to toughen yourself up, take risks and bang out or shoot. In the words of Rocky Balboa, "get hit and move foward to win", dumbest thing I'd ever heard in my life. Well, you may be able to fight like that for once or twice in lifetime but continuing to do so for career long is not going to guarantee good outcomes.

    Let's look at some of the MMA professionals who have helped prove that MMA is a very bad activity to get involved in over a certain extent. You lose your control gradually and start to invite unnecessary troubles that you otherwise never have to encounter. They got into fights with traffic, people, the law and themselves.

    Quinton Jackson
    Matt Hughes
    Jacob Ortiz
    Kkazuo Misaki
    Ryan Jimmo
    Hayato Sakurai
    Renato Sobrel
    Justin Eilers
    Angela Lee
    Jon Jones
    Tapout Mask
    Roger Guerra
    Sean Strickland
    Daniel Straus
    Kris Midoux
    Julianna Pena


    The list goes on forever

    I find a drink or two calms my nerves before driving.

    Not my fault there's cage fighters out there running!

    Hayato Sakurai showed incredible restraint in that auto accident with the construction worker, taking the guy's punch and not eviscerating him where he stood. My understanding is the guy hit Sakurai pretty hard too.

    That doesn't prove shit. It's MMA, a lot of people involved who enjoy violence anyway are going to be drawn to competing in it. What are you comparing it to? Bankers?

    LOL That is a lie. How could you've known MMA for 16 years and still believe in fairy tales. You sound like those guys that say that Bruce Lee would have beaten Jones. Do you also believe in Santa?
    Nobody says that. Did the last MMA event you watched was in 2004? In MMA more than boxing or any sport, not getting hit is crucial because of the 4oz gloves.

    Asked for trouble and backed out. He wasn't in control of himself.

    Karate teaches focus on the defense. That's the whole point.

    Jiujitsu also works the best when it's played defensively.

    MMA fighters who fight for self defense cannot keep their job. They are willing to take hits and their safety/risk assessment function will naturally end up being impaired

    You mean the accident where the construction worker hit a pedestrian Sakurai and then got out of his vehicle and struck Sakurai in the face or the famous accident which happened prior to his fight Matt Hughes?

    Ryan Jimmo? Two weak men decided to run him over deliberately?

    A case of failed risk management. People in Canada are not usually armed but it doesn't mean you can threaten to assault them over a parking spot. If you do, make sure to watch your back until the guys got the hell out of the scene.

    I personally know why mach didn't fight or protect himself but this is a highly private info and won't be disclosed publicly.

    I don't know when the incident with that construction worker occurred because he mentioned something like this after defeating his opponent in 2006 "I (recently)lost a fight in the street but I can't let it happen in the ring"

    MMA = means of validating effectiveness of the art you're training. Should be tried periodically like once in 2 Years.

    Do not make a career out of this. It'll ruin your life.

    What happens when you take out Jon Jones from your analysis?

    What do the #s look like?

    Seen some clips of Gordon Ryan fights. Became curious about when this cocky fucker lost the last time and I visited his wiki to find that he just had a motorcycle accident last year. Grappling is not exactly equal to MMA but it's an art that breaks your norm so bad that you soon start losing your sense of safety. I say training will increase your chance to get involved in accidents by more than 300%.

    Harold Howard

    On December 22, 2009 Howard was charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a weapon, attempted breaking and entering, failure to remain, flight from police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, mischief and two counts breach of recognizance after being captured by police. The events leading to said arrest include attacking his sister and nephew with a hammer, attempting to force his way into his estranged wife's home, and finally crashing his car into the Fallsview Casino.[3] In the end, Harold was sentenced to just shy of five years in prison.

    If I said all UFC matters would that be racist?

    Are you saying early events were unfair because fighters in certain regions weren't able to afford to travel to US or didn't even know UFC existed?

    I believe early UFCs were more racially diverse. Early roster resembled Jehovah's witness pamphlet showing everybody in the frame.
