No, but people don't view MMA the same way they view boxing. Boxing is a violent sport, MMA is an unregulated fight. Nevermind that MMA is considerably safer than boxing, short and long term.

A death in a major MMA promotion would be a much bigger deal.

People are still getting used to it. Some refuse.

Yeah, a death in a major MMA event would be bad news for the sport...big time. People would be all over it. I wonder what happened to Tra though? It's weird, I Googled him and looked for anything recent about him for a good 20minutes and came up with nothing. Strange. Sylvia's high kick was a mean one, but I seriously doubt it was enough to kill Tra lol He seems to have disappered after that fight though

A death in the UFC, especially live on PPV or worse live on Spike, would be all the ammunition the MMA hating politicians and media need to make it illegal and or impossible to get it sanctioned. The media and heat that would arise from it would be intense. It would be a public relations nightmare.

People might knock my attitude for being pessimistic or whatever but I think I'm also being a realist and you hate people to go on and take beatings when they just aren't at that level. Look at Ken Shamrock ... people can say all sorts of nice things, and he has accomplished a lot, but truthfully when it's time to hang it up, go out gracefully and be at peace. Ken stayed far too long and let his star blemish. Tra Telligman falls in this bunch of people and should probably hang it up.
thats pretty much what i was getting at when i posted this

yeah it would be a shame if he did, but he got punished by rich , and rich got destroyed by silva. so its kinda like damn, does he really want to worj his way back up to a title shot?? it could be the first death in mma. he should consider dropping to 170 if he can make it. he is the same size as gsp, so it could be possible

The Search for Tra Telligman begins........
When he came back to the octogan he was more vicious & his stand-up got a lot better.

OK, so I'm not the only one... I've been trying to find out what happened to him since that last fight - it looked super serious but couldn't find anything and started to give up until I saw this thread... so let's keep looking and if anyone finds out I would love to know!!!
