as mentioned in the posts above if you get injured too bad in mma the fight is over in football for example you get tackled by a say 250 pound man running full speed at you you stand up and do it again , dana white speaks in an interview about how football is a lot more dangerous than mma and he brings up some good points

Where does that interview appear? I'd like to read it.
And thanks,

This can crack the sternum, bruise the heart, even kill. On the person doing the tackle, it can cause severe brain trauma and spinal damage(due to alignment at impact). This is just one type of injury. Catching someone in the knees can end careers, a firm strike to the spine with a shoulder or helmet, etc.

Mostly it is about protecting the center line(spine, brain, and sternum), imagine a line dividing your body in half vertically. Many of the injuries throughout any sport are located here and of course knees. In football especially, the spine is open for tackles from the back, illegal blocks, accidental spears damaging both parties, etc. Also, you have to consider the fact that in football there are pile ups, blocks where a twisted knee can get 2 guys laying on it, etc.

In terms of preventing injuries:

1. MMA focuses on striking to the head for KOs, which are given far faster than in boxing, and take a fighter out far quicker than in football. In almost any sport, if you get your bell rung, you take 15 seconds and get back in, unless its REALLY bad. MMA doesnt do that, so they dont allow repeated head trauma.

2. MMA controls any joint damage with ref stoppages or tapouts. In football you cant tap and get the 300 pound guy off of your knee that his weight is hyper extending.(just one example of hundreds).

3. MMA doesnt allow any attacks which may damage the spine, anything to the back of the head/spine is against the rules. Football its encouraged. You are supposed to go for center mass as hard as you can. Tacklers want to throw the biggest hit possible to that area.

There are loads more, but these are the main areas.
Also, somebody mentioned soccer.And I know that one of the waitresses once had a brief fling with a pro soccer player and she is still very much into soccer.
I believe that the stats are similar, even though there is,for example, no tackling in soccer.
Why is soccer more dangerous than MMA?

NOLA_JACK has a little shameless behaviour in the past
No legal tackling, there are all kinds of trips, accidental headbutts, kicks, etc.

One of the worst things I've seen in soccer is a shin bone break in half from two people kicking at the ball. Soccer players, football players, almost any other athletes dont condition themselves to withstand impacts the way MMA fighters do. Take tito's killer core workouts, thats designed to prevent injury just as much as it helps his stamina, same with strengthening your shins, etc.

Basically, MMA has the most safe rules, the most well conditioned athletes(in terms of preventing injury, soccer is very demanding), and is in the best situation to get help if it is ever needed.

There was a guy who died because he had something wrong with him and he over excerted himself in a fight and died after, and the guy who died recently suffered a blood clot and then a very rare second blood clot that put him in a coma and then put him out. Serious injury/death is incredibly rare.

Who were these guys? Where and when were these matches?
I never heard of these incidents;I certainly agree with you that this is exceedingly rare.
so much so that I had never ever heard of these.
Again,what details can you recall of this?
Appreciate it,
Ferdelance

I don't really know any details of the first one, but the blood clot one was very recent, only a couple of months ago. If you do a search for 'mma death' or something you'll find loads of topics on it on here.

According to the show Manswers on Spike, 187 people died in 2005.... from fishing.

Getting your head bashed in is safer than sitting in a boat staring at the water. If that's not counter-intuitive I dunno what is.
