  1. Oh wait... my apologies... that was the Yianni challenge
  2. I heard it was an 18 page brief drafted by Cornell wrestling alumni because Coach Koll "doesn't speak legalese"
  3. No blues!!! Does that mean Ringer has to wear a red singlet?

    It is possible that you're both correct... It may be an old term that didn't enter popular culture until NYPD Blue.

    OK. Thanks for being rational. I also am a big time Yianni supporter, but do not think he has yet demonstrated infallibility.

    I understand you're wanting to prove the point "that points are meaningless" however he was the World Silver Medalist, last year and has had a pretty stellar last 2 years No... I agree with you that he is a stud. I don't disagree that points are important. He is likely the second best wrestler in the world last year. But he has been very busy, whereas the Japanese gentleman has not been... thus the points. I just don't think you can call someone the "best in the world" unless they win the tournament at least once.

    ... how can he be our only shot at a World medal when he can't even make the team? (and I would like to see him do so)

    #1 ranked based on points. How many times has he won worlds?

    Yes, Yianni has proven he can beat Punia under some favorable circumstances. But Punia is not "anyone in the world." He may be one of the best, but there is still a Japanese gentleman to deal with. I would have loved a match with Punia this weekend.

    I'm a huge Yianni fan. I sat in front of the TV today to watch him receive a forfeit. But it was also the third of three continents Punia had wrestled on, and the scoring was suspect at times. Definitely a huge win for Johnny D though. How about Otugoro?

    Just saying, the man had wrestled on three continents in three weeks. Have you ever traveled? Maybe he was missing a gear? And yes, I saw the match. Has Yianni beaten Otogoru?

    Bajrang had wrestled on three continents in three weeks. It is possible that he may have been a little worn down.

    Leading to more cuts and more stoppages due to cuts. And more broken hands which punch softer and less often.

    Where's your studies? Published studies, not conjecture. I will reiterate my point: sub-concussive events seem as likely to cause CTE as TBI. Mike Webster's brain showed no signs of TBI, yet he had horrible CTE. Why? Because he was a Center and was hit by 2-3 guys every single play for over 200 NFL games, plus college, plus previous action. If boxers are repeatedly being hit in the head way more than MMA, they are more likely to get CTE. I produced a study published by Oxford U showing this. Your inability to show anything beyong anecdotal conjecture shows that you are nothing more than a troll.

    You don't doubt both can lead to CTE? More sub-concussive impacts over the course of years are worse that fewer sub-concussive impacts. Is it that hard to understand? Or do you think you know more than Dr. Umalo?

    I'm sure he will be happy to produce numerous journal articles saying exactly that!!!

    It was not the claim I was making. Go back and read... I say that bigger gloves in training lead to more sub-concussive blows. I also later said that kicks and knees are hugely problematic.

    Askren.......OUCH!

    Yesssss.... but the near misses with 4 oz gloves become hits with 16 oz gloves, especially when all sparring as a boxer is stand-up. Eat that Newton!

    It is also obvious when someone has CTE or damage from multiple concussions at an autopsy... https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/12/the-nfl-players-brain-that-changed-the-history-of-the-concussion/417597/ (Two very different things)

    Easyyyy nowww Dr. Biily.... I'm just saying ... You may have your own theories. The truth is the doctors do not know what exactly causes CTE, but it seems as repetitive sub-concussive trauma is a MAJOR issue. How that compares to a few concussions over a career? No one knows. Not sure why you are coming at me so hard? Anyway, this is an interesting journal article by some guy named Dr. Bennet Omalu, talking largely abour Mike WEbster who had very few recorded concussions: https://academic.oup.com/neurosurgery/article-abstract/59/5/1086/2559104?redirectedFrom=fulltext Also: MMA guys don't spend all their time sparring stand-up, boxers do. Therefore, MMA guys take fewer hits to the head in fights and training over the course of their career. Especially guys who come from grappling disciplines. P.S. Where is your medical degree from?

    Askren.......OUCH!

    I think the little blows added up over time are what they are blaming for a lot of CTE. It is very difficult to measure this stuff, but I am agreeing with what a lot of the medical professionals have said. Boxers, who use bigger gloves, get hit a LOT more in training and practice than MMA guys.

    Askren.......OUCH!

    You can get hit way more times with 16 oz gloves than 4 oz gloves. Wayyyy more repetitive trauma. Also the weight and size of the fist is increased. MMA DOES have the powerful kicks, knees and elbows though... (has any boxer ever hit as hard as full speed running Masdival flying knee?)

    Askren.......OUCH!

    Heavier gloves lead to worse brain trauma. You are adding a pound of weight to each fist. The heavier gloves protect the hand... and make blows to the head worse (at least for sub-concussive trauma)
