    Wish him well.

    I'm surprised this injury doesn't occur a little more often.

    When I first saw it, I assumed the injury happened from a choke...but the article says strikes.

    Ouch that's terrible I'm actually surprised that it doesn't happen more often but I wish him a speedy recovery and I hope he returns to the cage.

    sad to hear. Hope he recovers quickly. YOu don't see this very often because it is incredibly difficult/unlucky to land a punch or a kick to someones throat . Especially when they are in a proper fighting stance and have their chin tucked properly

    yeah i've always expected this to happen. i see a lot of inadvertent strikes missing the chin and getting to the throat area.

    I hope he is ok, that sounds terrible.

    And yeah, it's easy to miss the chin, it's surprising this doesn't happen more often.

    Can you heal from that type of injury? Or is it damaged for good?

    Sorry to hear it.. Was the pressure on his brain from the lack of oxygen over an extended period, or what?
