UFC MMA fighter says recent domestic abuse arrests involving fighters may be connected to CTE/brain damage

Who would have guessed that getting your brain damaged constantly makes you into a punchy asshole just like everyone else who gets brain damage recreationally instead of for money.

I wouldn’t speculate about brain damage being a factor.

I would speculate it’s more about the type of person who solves all their problems with violence.

There’s a very clear corelation between frontal lobe damage and disinhibition of violent impulses.

This goes all the way back to Phineas Gage.

Although I also agree that MMA fighters are also generally self-selected to be egregious assholes.
