Why should you read this article as an MMA fan?
Uhmm, it's about head trauma, CTE.
It's a subject that guys like Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Gary Goodridge, Chris Leben, Rich Franklin, Wanderlei Silva and many other fighters should think about or at least consider. Well at least I know Goodridge's friend Bob Sapp thinks about degenerative brain diseases.
Also don't forget that Junior Seau cornered Forrest Griffin during UFC 101 in Philadelphia.
If you DO KNOW some one competing in MMA/Boxing or any combat sport (read: football, hockey) then I would forward this article to them.
