J/K I'll take your word on it Actually thanks for the info. So what do you think, will this eventually happen on the big stage? That scares me coz if it is possible and MMA is perpetual then statistics dictate it will eventually happen. 1 out of...................?

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Well mos tof the scenarios that I said would either take soemone with a very lax neck (IE being KO'd already) Or it would have to be a very large person (Wes' size) against a very small, thin person without much neck/shoulder muscle to help cushion the blow. IE, Lesnar or Carwin could probably make this happen against Nate Diaz.

People being killed by a single punch is actually quite common. I even know a guy who got 6 years for doing so. However, in many cases there are extenuating circumstances involved in causing the death (alchohol, hitting head on floor, sucker punch, size difference etc.) so although it's possible it could happen in an MMA match, it's a lot less likely.
