    Well, if you're going to use that anaolgy, it would be more like a crash DOES happen, every time he gets in his car and goes for a drive

    I don't care what anypne says, between training, sparring, fighting, amateur fights, etc etc, thse guys must get a hit to the head over a million times in their life. That can't be good for the brain when you're 60 years old

    Well if you're going to be scared of something in MMA, that would be it.

    good for him, IMHO. He is a smart dude if he was a PhD candidate in biochem and i'm sure he can be involved in MMA/athletics in other ways.

    Man, anytime you even bump your head you get some damage...stupid brain, just kinda slides around inside your head of which the inside is kind of spiky. Can't say I blame him with all the training and shots they take to the dome just there. I hope the best to him but I think he could have continued competing but I'll never fault anyone for doing what is best for themselves.

    It's a shame to see him retire. That elbow KO in his debut was amazing, and because of it I think I would have always tuned in to see him fight. I'd be interested to read the articles/research that has led to Denis' retirement though if anybody can lay their hands on it.
