That's likely the case but can be said for most boxers tbf though. Concussion alone can lead to risk taking and poor decision making.

Very true and that thought actually ran through my mind after I posted that...I think with Nick though, it was probably more markedly the case given the extent of the brain trauma he sustained in that one fight.

I wonder if the guy that was sparring with him was suffering from concussion....hence the bad decision making  Cool

Exactly....Also Carl's interview after the first Groves victory lost him a lot of casual fans because he was talking some bollocks.

In fact Joe Rogan doesn't think the UFC fighters should be interviewed straight after having their brains rattled as half the time they make sod all sense.

The Andrew Golota interview after his fight with Mike Tyson was the first fight that came to mind after this post of yours  Grin

That was even worse as the interviewer actually went looking for Golota.

The trainer has lost his licence and Kakardi has been suspended for 6 months. Should have been for much longer IMO.
