On a regular basis, men enter a ring and punch each other repeatedly in the head.
This causes brain damage.
Well, more brain damage.
Critics are reminded that the participants are consenting adults.

A clear admission that you can’t possibly win without divine intervention, yeah, that’ll really psych out your opponents.
