    This kind of thing hits home hard eh… 🙁 Reminds you of the risks i guess- but then again there are risks in everything you do…

    It’s just unbelievable that it happened- amateur fight, headgear on and everything. It must have been some freak accident… hit her just the right way… if there was no preexisting medical condition. Hopefully her opponent is being supported through all of this- and is able to accept that this isn’t her fault.

    It’s sort of frustrating that they’re comparing this to Million Dollar Baby because the situation in that movie was a lot different.

    This is awful

    I feel for her family, friends, opponant and everyone else.

    A similar fluke thing happned here in cali a while back a Man died in a tae kwon do touney wearing head gear after a kick to the head. It is all tragic and very sad.

    for the most part, what we do keeps us healthier. this is sad and, i admit, scary, but working through these accidents is part of fighting and part of living. far more people die per year in freak boating accidents.

    The opponent, a talented purple belt in BJJ, had been training for the Pam Am’s but blew out a knee in a motorcycle accident a few years ago. A one time pro mountain biker, she switched to boxing as the severe injury prohibited jiu jitsu and began teaching the sport. This was her comeback fight to competition after a long period of rehab therapy.

    And here is the video:

    Shit…..how could that happen? Punch didn’t look that hard. 🙁 Maybe because she hit her in the temple. I don’t know.

    Very unfortunate. We were just discussing concussions on another thread… and this could easily be a case where she was training heavily and came in with grade 1 or 2 concussions…then all it would take is a shot like this which did not really appear that strong from the replay. Also illustrates why I’m opposed to headgear…it hinders the view from various angles and looks like she got hit with a looping right that she never saw coming.

    Headgear really doesn’t do anything accept prevent you from getting cut. When you take a hard punch, even with headgear on, your brain is still moving around in there.

    Regardless, the situation is sad, and my heart goes out to her family.

    This is a very sad event. While it is awful for her family and friends (who I feel for), it’s hard on her opponent too. I hope this doesn’t affect her career too badly.
