Hayden Panettiere: Boxing more dangerous than MMA

by Steve Cruce | source: sportsradiointerviews.com/
 

Let me ask you this since I hear you’re a sports fan: Do you view boxing to be more dangerous than say Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)?

Hmm…that’s a good question. I’m sure in some ways it is. You have obviously more to throw at them with MMA, but the thing with boxing is people really have to have endurance for it. People I have seen, guys go into fights and just take it for twelve rounds, keeping getting nailed over-and-over again for twelve rounds because they can take a punch. They can take a hit and then you’re dealing with the brain damage and the repercussions of being hit over-and-over that many times. You know MMA doesn’t seem to be the same kind of damage repeatedly.

It's funny reading some kids posts on here bitching about her comments. At least there some who recognize the context of and the validity to what she's saying. And at least her comments were both respectful and logical, she wasn't just some bimbo spouting off a bunch of bullshit.

For long term brain injury, the most serious harm that can come from fighting, I don't see how there can be any debate that boxing is much more dangerous. The fighters are far more skilled at delivering strikes and there is a greater prominence placed on striking the head due to kicks and grappling not being used. Not to mention the standing count which allows a fighter to receive a concussion and continue fighting possibly multiple times, which occurs much less frequently in MMA.
