Top 5 Most Brutal Sports In The World
5) Ice Hockey
This sport has the highest concussion rate and it’s no surprise it makes it to our list. Players shoving each other, kicking, assaulting with sticks and in most cases, all out brawls are not uncommon in ice hockey. These actions are often condoned and are treated as an acceptable part of the sport. A game without a fight is considered as a dull affair.
Grab the ball and run towards the post, that’s how most of us would explain rugby but the brutality is often left out. Players ramming into you with so much force that you might experience a concussion, coupled with you being tackled into the ground and your opponents piling up over you, which might cause you to pass out. Keep in mind these things if you ever consider paying rugby.
The only reason MMA is followed by boxing is that in this sport you’re not allowed to use anything other than your fists. But make no mistake, boxing is just as brutal. Seldom do boxers emerge out of a fight without bruises, or their jaws broken, or their eyes swollen shut. Many at times, suffer from broken bones and serious internal bleeding but boxers love to compete, probably because the glory outweighs the suffering.
