Is there scientific evidence that directly links Ali's boxing career to his parkinson's disease? No, but medical research has shown that those who have faced severe head trauma are far more susceptible to getting Parkinson's than those who haven't. Some say 4 times, while others say even 11 times more likely. It's certainly possible.

It's all well and good stating that there's no proof Ali's Parkinsons is related to boxing, but turn and look at the many ex-boxers who can no longer string a coherent sentence together. Accumulative brain damage from combat or contact sports such as football is real and that is the issue. There's plenty of studies out there - the evidence is overwhlming.

Will it stop me loving MMA? No but I'm still very concious of how some of the fighters of today and yesterday might end up in a similar state as some boxers.

Take James Toney, for example. During the Countdown to UFC 118 they used subtitles to make his speech understandable for people. I'm not a fan of boxing, so I don't know if this is the way he always spoke, but something tells me that this is the consequence of his career.
