hi everyone,

i'm new to this forum, and i just wanted to introduce myself and start things off with a question.

i recently saw "the smashing machine" with mark kerr"

we all witnessed how jacked up he was on painkillers just to get him through his days. my question is:

"how common is the use of prescription painkillers in the sport of mma?"

those of you that are competing on a regular basis, do you come across it regularly?

my question is more for's just something that has intrigued me since watching that movie. i've been training for a very short time now, and i can just imagine the damage that can be done.

anyway, thanks for the time

Mark Kerr was brutal in his last days in PRIDE FC. Heck, he even lost to Yoshihida Yamamoto who is 6-15 .

Unless it's a real serious injury, I can't see them taking painkillers too much. Of course I could be wrong.

i dont see them taking any serious pain meds..because they are very addictive and the fighters know that it will hurt them in prperation for a fight more than it helps
