Ya I don't buy that either. Wandy still gets dropped when anything decent connects. Wandy went down three times in round one vs Stann, if a follow up had landed that woulda been the fight. No one would be saying that if Wandy had been kod by Stann, which thankfully did not happen.

I don't have any evidence to back it up but I don't believe the amount of muscle you might lose in your neck would significantly affect the amount of damage you could take. Being knocked out has a lot to do with the sudden acceleration of the brain which causes temporary loss of brain function, so I suppose really strong neck muscles could affect this. I just don't think it would affect it enough to make a noticeable difference. After all we see the most knockouts at higher weight classes. If stronger neck muscles really did stop knockouts from happening you would assume the increase in power in the heavier fighters would be nullified by their stronger neck muscles.

Some fairly prominent MMA fighter's son just got his wrestling medals stripped because he cut more weight than legally allowed... just a couple of weeks ago
Interesting I never thought of this. I'll have to do some reading.
