Great post Bruno. Amazing that looking back at the UFC and MMA we are talking about generations of fighters. One of the best generations, Rich, Chuck, Randy, and yes even tito. Good to see Even Tanner there too!

The worst is he is a huge boxing fan but is too much of an asshole to admit it’s more dangerous.One time he had an anti MMA speech and the same week he went to a boxing match where a guy died.A real two faced asshole.One side is old and dumb the other is flappy and disfigured ;P

Is it ironic that Big John says that “no one’s ever had any serious lasting injuries” and they show Goodrich?….starts at 23:05.

Oops….Goodridge, not Goodrich.

@ Mr. Oblivious – Goodridge stated his brain damage came from his career as a kick-boxer, and getting KO’d so many times during that career. McCarthy was right as he was talking about MMA not fight sports overall. Even though he said that 7 years ago, it’s still valid.

Mr Obvious Says, in 2-22-2012 at 17:14:59 from    

@ Sunfilth Herd – I know he said it was from kick-boxing, but it’s still odd that they showed him at that moment. And don’t you probably think it was a combination of his entire career as a whole, not just one particular facet of fighting? If a fisherman ended up with arthritis in his hands, would you believe him if he said “It’s not from reeling in all those Largemouth Bass, it’s from reeling in Crappie.”

@Mr Obvious – Sorry about the misspelling of our name, that was actually what I thought your name said. Honest mistake.

Sure, I wont pretend that his handful of KO losses in MMA didn’t contribute, but had he NEVER had a career in kick-boxing, I don’t believe he would have brain damage. It hasn’t happened before, and while the sport is still quite young, there haven’t really been any signs of brain damage in currently retiring fighters. Certainly no diagnoses outside of Goodridge.

Your comparison isn’t really fair either. As MMA and Kick-boxing MAY both be combat sports, the difference in the two makes them not really comparable. In Kick-Boxing you can lose either by KO or decision. There is a VERY good chance you will be knocked down and/or rocked in EVERY SINGLE BOUT. The chances of either of those things are MUCH lower in MMA simply by virtue of the fact that grappling is a prominent feature is MMA. Crappie and Bass are extremely similar, MMA and kick-boxing…not so much.

Uncledana, Evan Tanner is a legend. Obvioulsy he was a Champion. He died several years ago on a soul searching trip into the desert. His motorcycle ran out of gas. Very peculiar, interesting, amazing person. The kind of person people gravitate toward. Glad I knew him.
