MMA: Dangerous Sport?

In our opinion MMA is less damaging than most fighting sports.

In boxing there is no way to avoid head shots, there is no honorable way of showing you have had too much. like Roberto Duran NO MAS vs. Sugar Ray Leonard.  You end up with a lot more brain damage than you want.

Muay Thai you take so much abuse your body is broken before the age of 40, and again no way of stopping the punishment of strikes.

In MMA if you are being beat standing you can take your opponent down and slow the attack. In MMA you have an honorable way of showing that you have taken enough.
