dos Santos's Knock Out


I'm a big fan of Mixed Martial Arts, and take classes where I punch pads and bags, which is very cathartic. I would never actually spar with someone, taking punches to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 head, however, because I don't think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 brain takes such punishment well. In last Saturday's prime time UFC battle, two heavyweights were involved, and only 60 seconds into t he fight Brazilian Junior dos Santos connected right behind Velasquez's left ear (see above). It didn't look like much, but this part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 brain controls your motion, and it clearly disrupted those circuits.

As Velasquez explained after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fight, he 'saw everything but his body wasn't reacting.' Thus, he was fully conscious but momentarily defenseless (not defending yourself is cause for stoppage). Most knockouts involve some momentary loss of consciousnesses, often when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 head twists from a punch to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chin or jaw, so this was racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r interesting.

MMA is less dangerous than boxing because in boxing concussed boxers are basically kept vertical via standing 8 counts and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nature of boxing where it isn't nearly as easy to finish someone; cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 result is a lot more brain punishment. In MMA a woozy fighter can dispatched many ways, often by tackling him and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n applying a rear-naked choke that is pretty benign (not that I would want my sons doing this).

Let your sons do it, it's super fun and harmless (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 choking, not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 punching), seriously.

I coach my boy's wrestling team, so I'm all for BJJ, grappling and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest. Punching cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 head is my only concern.
