Injuries make no sense


Recommended Posts

Eric Kock- Last fought in September 2011, how is he getting injured.


Dan Henderson- November 2011, had a brutal slugfest with Shogun, was able to fight in April, but admitted he turned down a fight with Lil Nog in Sweden, and said he wasn't interested in Machida.


Jose Aldo- Last fough in January, knocked Mendes out with a knee, looked like he didnt even try, and somehow cant fight next month.


Thiago Silva gets injured all the time, he barely ever fights, he was out for 1 whole year after juicing, gets a fight and somehow pulls his next fight(Shogun) cause of an injury.


The Nog Brothers...seriously?

My point is' date=' injuries were never a huge issue to the point that it would effect the card. If there were back up plans thats fine, but the back up plans lately have been very limited.[/quote']


there have always been injuries, but up until recently, fighters just gutted it out and fought anyway. no fighter is 100% when they step in the cage, training camps are tough

oh ok


when guys were gutting it out, there were no replacements available, there weren't many fighters, and there were barely any big names. Now its easier to just get moved to a different card. the amount of testing that fighters goo through to get medical clearance has inreased hugely too, if a fighter was injured, someone would find out. when the ufc began, you just turned up and fought. and if you're a champion, obviously you want to keep your belt, so fighting through an injury might end up losing you the belt


i think you're trolling, but there it is
