After this weekend of football and the horrible tragedy that happened to Kevin Everett of the bills, its easy to appreciate the safety that is offered by our favorite sport of mma. A sport that is still taboo to most of America due to its brutality. Of course its inevitable that someone will suffer a catastrophic incident in the cage one day, hell even basketball players have collapsed on the court. But there are so many precautionary steps taken to ensure the safety of the mma competitor, and hopefully this translates into the long term. Mma is still in its infancy, so who knows what long term effects will plague the retired fighter. What will become of the bodies and minds of don Frye and ken shamrock. Two guys that were known for having brawls and putting their bodies and heads through hell for extended periods of time. Hopefully, no fighter ends up like Ali, earl Campbell, or like many other NFL stars that suffered multiple concussions which led to depression and suicide.
