for many fighters the alternative career paths are not alluring.
Alot of ppl do dangerous jobs. much more dangerous than fighting.
i dont see many ppl refusing to support police, fireman, army vets etc because their jobs are too dangerous and who are we to ask somebody to risk their lives and health for our benefit??
i just dont get the sentiment. I dont get how it would take so long to come to the conclusion that maybe fighting is bad for you longterm.
To each his own tho, i wish your friend the best and hopefully he can reconcile his issues with Mixed Martial Arts and become a fan again someday.
Football players go thru much the same thing but not many ppl stop watching football because of it.
