    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    6 knockdowns, at least 2 standing 8's......it was such a preventable thing.....not to say that if the ref had of stopped it in the 1st we still wouldn't be here talking about Tim Hague dying......but we'll never know

    Not to mention the guy he was fighting was so far above his level, the commission should never have cleared the fight.......and he was concussed in training about 2 weeks out from the fight(from what I've heard said anyway)........but mostly, in boxing there is a rule over how many concussions/KO's you can have over a 1 and 2 year period before they are meant to shelve you for a year.......I think I heard he had 3 more than is allowed.

    Athletes in combat sport really are just pawns for "our amusement" Very little regulation anymore at least any with teeth.

    Seriously, how the fuck does McGregor/Floyd even get sanctioned????

    Agreed, it's crazy these commissions are allowed to regulate the sport, when their primary objective is to make money.

    As for the freakshow........can you imagine if Conor actually gets badly hurt or worse.......the NSAC would be finished.

    A couple of guys and I were talking about that very same scenario at work today......it could be a disaster
