This seems like a horrible fight for Nick and I hope he takes it. I'm not even anti-Nick, I just love seeing Maia breakdance on guys who have good jiu jitsu.

good catch. I CnPed the first line from the old OP and then second-guessed myself when correcting it later.

I claim victory over myprotein. Ordered 70 worth of Whey and Vitimins because they had a good deal on. They shipped it next day signed delivery, although the courier decided to just leave it on my front porch for the world to see and didn't get it signed.

Told them I never got it, they sent out the same package again. Easy.

Almost every major sport that has any kind of contact at all is going to lead to some brain damage. While i agree that its hard to watch poo poo like that, concussions occur in pretty much everything except baseball and even then the occasional guy gets domed.

There is basically no way to make most sports, especially combat sports, brain safe.

why? do u think athletes dont know what their occupational hazards are? dont u think they would have at least made 1 or 2 friends or came into contact with a professional health worker at some point in their career that would tell them about it even if they didnt take the time to find out on their own? people die and get crippled working in regular jobs all the time. and frankly beating the poo poo out of eachother for a living is safer and easier on your body than a lot of them. i agree with the sentiment that there should be more done to educate and protect athletes though

I think Nick would probably bring in a better strategy for survival on the ground than Condit's weird belief that he was going to somehow retain guard and strike from the bottom until Maia gassed. Nick trains with Shields, the only guy who has been able to keep up with welterweight Maia on the mat. That said, (a) Nick'd still get taken down and lose, I just think it would take slightly more time and effort in Maia's part to find the sub, and (b) fight won't happen because Nick was spoiled by the paydays from losing to GSP and Anderson.

I certainly don't think I'm more aware of the risks than the athletes, with exceptions for your Paul Harrises. Still when I watch someone get hurt real bad it makes me wonder what I get out of it and if my sister isn't right to be repulsed by the whole thing. I keep watching tho.

Lol, keep up? Shields thoroughly outgrappled Maia, imo it wasn't especially close.

Nick has never been submitted, and took Condit's back effortlessly during the past minute of their fight.

Outside of Maia and Jacare, the Diaz Bros have some of the nicest BJJ in the game.
