No worries, I tried not to make it a prick reply. Its true bones, like muscles do grow stronger through injury. I didn't think I worded it quite correctly. What I mean is a 40 year old MMA fighter whos been through the wars is more likely to get knocked out, generally, than a 25 year old fighter whos only a few fights in. Yes the bones get stronger, but knockouts become more common, thus leading to more injuries. I'm not a doctor, evidently, so I can't explain why.
