Following our Horses for Courses post.  Here is another sport that needs to address and review it’s safety issues.  We are very saddened to hear of the death of the young Portuguese MMA boxer Joao Carvhalo three days after being technically knocked out during a fight last Saturday night.

Should this fight have been stopped before he was knocked out?

Our thoughts are with Joao’s family.
