'Punch drunk' is a term for the permanent damage you can get from repeated blows to the head.

What you guys are describing is as you said it yourself 'getting rocked'. lol.

Closest I ever got to punch drunk was when I was jacking up the front end of a truck and the handle kicked back and got me in the forehead. I was out for 10 minutes and spent the next 3 days in total lala land. Barely remember it. almost a euphoric feeling though, a bit like hyperventilating. Slight concussion.

How quickly do you recover usually and how do those rubber legs feel?? I'll never forget the look in Rich's eyes when he ate that first knee from Silva on his chin .. He never fully recovered

Usually when I get rocked a good one sound seems to stop.

So Fighters, if you don't mind,

I have a question along the same line, how does anyone keep their bearings after even one knee to the head? I caught an accidental knee to the head in a Rugby match and it was devastating. Dunno how you guys recover so quickly but that's one of a million reasons I like watching.

That isn't nearly as bad as you'd think. You are still hyped up from the fight. Its the days following the break that are bad, and the days after surgery are even worse.
