I personally think that its impossible to go into a fight without getting hit. So, the more hits you can take, the less likely you are to get knocked out. Furthermore, the only way to get resiliant against hits get hit.

Personnally Id get use to getting hit with 16 oz gloves then work your way down to 8oz but not full blown, its really how to bob and weave you are learning in training. You are going to get hit at somepoint in you career, but if it doesnt knock you out your adrenaline will help you through unless you get shook, which tends to cause you to curl up and defend which normally ends up end the fight with the ref stepping in because you cant respond to any of the hits.

As for brain damage its one of those things where its not that common in mma unlike boxing, where they continuously are getting hit and over the years of constant pounding it causes brain damage. In mma my friend had a freak of accident where he got hit hard in training and the way that he fell forced him to not fight for 6 months. It can happen but less unlikely in mma than boxing, because in mma the padding is thinner so if you get hit only take one or two punches where in boxing its 12 rounds

What exactly are you suggesting?

I dont get what you're suggesting? are you saying that...people should avoid getting hit while training? I'm not saying you have to stand still and have someone wail on you for 'conditioning.' I'm just saying that, in a place where you're doing real training (strikes), you're gonna get hit. So, since that is an inevitable, train so that you can still react competently during and after the blow.

Though, perhaps I was unclear. As Zedrush pointed out, you'll have padding. Plus, it's not like you'll be getting hit full force all of the time.
