Someone’s gonna die sooner or later

Rami Genauer paints a realistic but none too rosy picture of the future:

The fact that there have been no deaths in MMA is likely due to the fact that participation is still low compared to other sports. Safety stats are often calculated using the indicator “deaths per 100,000 participants.” As MMA participation increases past the 100,000 threshold and beyond, especially among amateurs with less skill and conditioning, a fatality is unfortunately inevitable.

I guess we all just have to cross our fingers and hope no one’s head explodes on live television.
