Punch Drunk: Combat Sport Concussions




Just read some pop news media article "Should Science on brain injury inspire a ban on boxing?"

Nothing inherently new in terms of info but may be a hint of things to come regarding media group think narrative. The concussion spotlight has returned to the age old sport of pugilism. Naturally I consider my dear sweet baby sport MMA, my little bundle of Pride. After each event big or small from amateur to pro a lot of these boys and girls around the world limp home with months of rehab after their Big weekend. If you compete or even train we all know this walking dead feeling is part of the pleasure pain principle and honestly has forever been the life of athletes.

Consider a young man like Struve, there's nothing funny about the shots this kid has taken from the UFC's biggest and best, especially because his head resembles a little jelly bean. How about little Feather Frankie, what does his MRI look like? American football has been taking the media heat as of late concerning this century old medical sport issue and now maybe it's boxing's turn again. What game plan can a fighter really have against brain damage without being labeled 'safe'? Moreover what level of critical risk should a modern government allow without becoming a Nanny State? Now my bathroom break is complete.
