Boxers gift: Organs will save 8 people

Very sad story. Just heard of this today, and I thought people here might be interested if they hadn't heard. Brings up the interesting discussion about which is safer: MMA or Boxing. I've believed for a long time that MMA is much safer, and this story backs that up.

Very sad deal, but 8 people have a chance to live on because of his death. I'm interested to hear what people have to say about this.

Simply reaffirms one of the best choices you can ever make in your life: To be an organ donor. It was a no-brainer when I got my driver's license.

I've always felt MMA is safer, at least with regards to head injuries for 2 real reasons: Those boxing gloves aren't really padded much if at all (and sometimes they've been loaded) and also in boxing it's the head that takes the majority of those punches. That's not necessarily the case in MMA, among other things. Plus in boxing you're doing it for up to 36 minutes during a fight, in MMA it's 15 or 25 minutes tops.
