    Darren Till, BJ Penn, Matt Hughes, Jon Jones, Conor McGregor, etc. Is the UFC doing enough to help MMA fighters integrate into modern civilization?

    They don't have the fear of 115lb girls tapping them out ingrained into them.

    some mma fighters have some kind of bully behavior before they went to combat sports, Add money, CTE, lack of common sense and you get things like Bj penn threatening with a machete or Till stealing a taxi.

    It's a self-selecting sport that draws people with impulse control and violence/anger issues to some extent.

    Also, you're still a pussy.

    The UFC is not doing enough to prevent stuff like this from happening. They need to start fining these guy like other sports do.

    They'd have to pay them more so that they could fine them

    Young Men = Trouble. Historically. Look it up TS. Dudes who don't spend much time laying about doing nothing tend to get into a bit more. This ain't new TS.

    Lots of MMA guys come from the streets and do not have an education. The older guys probably suffering from CTE.
