Lightbulb Does having Hypertension help against submissions

With all this oxygen can talk giving fighters an advantage during fights etc., I was wondering if having high blood pressure helps against certain chokes.

Now having High blood pressure means more pressure needs to be applied to an artery in order to stop the blood flow.

Now this had me thinking, is there a way to increase ones blood pressure before a fight?.... and if so do you think it would be advantageous?..

I mean if fighters are looking for any little edge against their opponent (oxygen cans) than why not this?

discuss....

I don't see the blood preassure being that important (And high BP would also make you gas faster right?)...

And I assume people fighting in a cage have a pretty high pulse, which would mean their blood is already being pushed around pretty hard :P

But I am of course not a doctor or anything remotely close to it so I am just guessing here, any real knowledge on this subject anyone?

wouldn't that increase the risk of cardiac arrest during & after the fight? which would offset any potential advantages...?

When measuring blood pressure we are not talking that kind of pressure its not a car tire its a garden hose.

It doesn't matter how abnormally high your blood pressure is. We're talking about the difference of crushing an ant and crushing a fly.

Agree...blood pressure is measured in millibars, choke pressures are hundreds of pounds of force. Plus, everyone's BP soars, up to 300, when they're full out straining (like when you're doing maximal weight lifting, or trying to get out of a choke)--doesn't help~!
