Mixed martial arts has taken the world by storm. The multi-billion dollar industry has fans around the world, in awe of the athletes of the sport who seem to be fearless in their pursuit of fighting greatness.
Discussion surrounding the dangers of contact and combat sports has been largely centered around chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a condition of progressive brain damage caused by forceful impact to the head.
Though the consequences are devastating, athletes who willingly compete in the sport have consented and assumed the risk. The physical damage opponents inflict on one another is inherently the game of the sport, and “leaving it all in the octagon” tends to be the mentality.
Unfortunately, certain athletes have been alleged to cause trauma in arenas that don’t involve the fighting cage. UFC champion Jon Jones was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run incident, colliding with a 25-year-old pregnant woman who resultantly suffered a broken arm.
You may have heard of the statistic that the general risk of being involved in a motor accident is higher than that of a plane accident.
