Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick February 20, 2012 @scottc The worst is he is a huge boxing fan but is too much of an ******* 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 *******.One side is old and dumb the other is flappy and disfigured ;P Log in to Reply DavidJones February 21, 2012 great video except tank abott he didnt really fit in to the whole but really great video.

Log in to Reply Mr Obvious February 21, 2012 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. Log in to Reply Mr Obvious February 21, 2012 Oops….Goodridge, not Goodrich. Log in to Reply axl782 February 21, 2012 nice video bruno, tx for the clasic! dana is getting old! hahaha Log in to Reply Sunfish Hero February 21, 2012 @ 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. Log in to Reply Mr Obvious February 22, 2012 @ 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.” Log in to Reply Sunfish Hero February 23, 2012 @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. Log in to Reply stu11 February 23, 2012 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. Log in to Reply Fluidity February 27, 2012 Amazing Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
