"If you allow (pure) oxygen for both fighters in between rounds they’re going to be fresher and the fights are going to be more exciting."-- Craig Inaba, owner of Oxygen4Energy talks about the use of portable canned oxygen in mixed martial arts.
"Oxygen is not going to affect a skill level, it refreshes them. It helps them control lactic acid, that’s the biggest thing. For example, the Shane Carwin fight. He just blew himself out. It could’ve helped him (against Brock Lesnar). He could’ve been able to recover in the second round. He wouldn’t have been so fatigued."
"It’ll be interesting to see how each sport handles it. The NFL allows each player to use oxygen on the sidelines no problem, one of the biggest sport organizations in the world."
