    The kick that took down Ronda Rousey could have been fatal, says a brain expert

    UFC: 'Eerie similarities' between Rousey KO blow and Hughes death

    The kick that took down Ronda Rousey could have been fatal, says a brain expert

    A leading neurologist has likened the brutal kick that floored Ronda Rousey to the blow that killed cricketer Phillip Hughes.
    Speaking to News Corp, Professor Chris Levi said Holly Holm's kick to the top of Rousey's neck could easily have proved fatal.
    Levi believes that Rousey, who was struck in an "almost identical area" to Hughes, was put at a high risk of neck trauma, stroke or death.



    At the top of the neck there is a relatively exposed vertebral artery that supplies blood to the brain", Professor Levi said.
    "We’ve known for many years that sudden rotational force can actually tear the artery.

    Would have been cool to see her head get chopped off and land in the bleachers. That's why I feel we should give our combat athletes more PED's.

    Sometimes slightly grazing the nuts hurts far more than a direct shot in the nads

    Well, they also claim chiros kill people every day because of damage to that artery without any documentation. Neurologist are people too, ill guess.

    Mirco Crocop got kicked in the head harder by Gonzaga and he didn't die.. A head kick from a smaller chick like Holy isn't gonna kill Rhonda Rousey.. She's got big head anyways..

    Heck, I've seen dozens of brutal head kick KO's in mens MMA over the years that were worse and no one died....

    This report is BS..


    This are manly head kicks courtesy of Gabriel Gonzaga whom is a can today -
