Having "obvious concussion like symptoms" for days and then successfully convincing his team to get him back into open workouts. That's a lot of people who let this guy put himself into more and more danger.

Max is 26 and he has had 18 UFC fights That does not bode well for his long-term health.

Note that Aaron Hernandez was 27 when he died.

I know they are blaming concussion but thatís gotta be a cover story for a bad weight cut

Max is a large featherweight and would have to start his cut process well in advance of the fight

this is a job for the Punk

Max's schedule plus giant weight cut plus style of fighting that encourages people to punch him in the head a ton makes this less surprising.

also, gently caress everything

I donít see why the hell they would cover up a bad weight cut with a concussion story. A major concussion is a much worse look.

Remember that this is a sport and a culture where cornermen shoved someone who'd lost all four rounds out into the fifth round despite their fighter wanting to quit. And the fighter ended up apologising to their cornermen.

Reading the symptoms this seems much worse than a concussion and that further testing is needed means they don't know yet whats going on which is much scarier.

Marching Powder posted:

I trained for two and a half years, and the worst concussion I got was from a no-strikes rolling session. I went to sit up and reach for a kimura while my sparring partner went to push his head into my chest. His brow went smack right into my right temple, and I lost a couple middle school algebra classes.

But in all seriousness, I was a wreck at work because I literally couldn't hold a thought in my head long enough to do my job. My entire head ached for two weeks. Sometimes, I burst into tears and couldn't understand why. I spent that time pedaling listlessly on the recumbent bike and wondered if I'd ever feel normal again.

Concussions suck.

Yeah, that's an interesting thing about grappling, you can always get hosed up. In boxing you typically go body only in the last two weeks, but some camps are more violent

They might just be covering their asses but I think, and hope it isnít, but it might just be the reality of being in MMA and Kickboxing from a young age.

Concussions are terrible and I canít imagine trying to start a weight cut with one.

I got one once from leaning into a headkick,, went home unawares and got blackout drunk on whiskey and spent a month wishing I was dead.

lol, the hosed up thing was I didn't even get buzzed and I've never been dropped so I was just like, "Oh well, cool, thank you, chin," and then two days later my brain felt like the two halves were trying to separate and I couldn't walk at all.

Matt Lindland posted:

Yeah, I wish it were just routine complications, but his team is saying that he hadn't even really started his weight cut and if that's true, then gently caress.

After seeing those interviews Max should absolutely not be fighting and the people on his team should not have let him go on television like that even if he protested and still planned to fight like the reports say

Max right now looks and sounds like people expect Cowboy to look and sound years from now - that poo poo is scary
