  • Question about chokeholds?

    So me and my friends were fooling around and one of them grabbed me and used chokehold on me, it lasted for 5 seconds, it wasn't meant to hurt me or something like that, but I felt an unpleasant feeling on the right side of my neck, I got a bit anxious, I've gone ahead and read online, but I couldn't... show more
    So me and my friends were fooling around and one of them grabbed me and used chokehold on me, it lasted for 5 seconds, it wasn't meant to hurt me or something like that, but I felt an unpleasant feeling on the right side of my neck, I got a bit anxious, I've gone ahead and read online, but I couldn't really find anything, I read that you may have no symptoms but brain is lacking oxygen because something is wrong and a person could die within a few days, this got me even more anxious, so can anyone shed some light on me since I do know for a fact that chokeholds are used in martial arts by police and etc.. so it shouldn't be dangerous.

  • Who would win in a fight?

    Best answer: Really? You have to ask this? If you used your head you would realize that someone trained has a better chance. So in light of that, it would be easy to surmise that the trained fighter would beat the untrained bodybuilder. You do realize bodybuilders workout for aesthetics not strength. So they do lack necessary... show more

  • Do you think UFC will eventually allow McGregor back in?

    Best answer: Probably but only after the state athletic commission and state of New York take their wack at him. He is facing felony charges from New York and that will have an impact on him being license professionally to fight. That and don't forget that his actions also caused the cancellation of a couple of the bouts... show more
    Best answer: Probably but only after the state athletic commission and state of New York take their wack at him. He is facing felony charges from New York and that will have an impact on him being license professionally to fight. That and don't forget that his actions also caused the cancellation of a couple of the bouts on the card the next night at Madison Square Garden. Both the New York and their state athletic commission will not let that slip past them either and so he can expect some heavy fines, a years suspension and maybe longer before they are done with him. The UFC will probably let things cool down some with him during that time frame and maybe then bring him back into the fold after all this is cleared up with New York state and their athletic commission. By then he will be somewhat poorer financially and maybe have a desire to fight more along with behaving himself.

  • Why do muscular men think they're tough?

    For some reason if you compare 2 people of the same height and one of them is skinny and the other is buff, almost everyone assumes the skinny guy will get his *** beat. Almost nobody takes fighting skill into consideration. Why?
