Former Bellator fighter Jordan Parsons, who died earlier this year at the age of 25, is the first mixed martial arts fighter to be publicly diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Arian Foster Jersey .Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist who first discovered the degenerative disease in the brain of Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Webster after his 2002 death, disclosed his findings on Parsons to The Boston Globe, which published a report on the diagnosis earlier Friday.Parsons (11-2), a featherweight who was three fights into his Bellator career, died on May 4, three days after being struck in a hit-and-run while crossing an intersection as a pedestrian in Delray Beach, Florida.Omalu told The Globe that it is impossible that Parsons CTE was caused by the accident because it is a chronic disease that develops over time.Parsons, who began competing in MMA at age 17 and turned pro three years later, was forced to take a full year off from competing after suffering his first loss in 2012 -- a first-round knockout loss in his eighth pro bout against Lazar Stojadinovic under the Championship Fighting Alliance banner.In his final bout, a split-decision loss to Bubba Jenkins in November 2015 at Bellator 146, Parsons was sent wobbling to the canvas after a kick to the head.The disease can be diagnosed only through postmortem brain autopsies.Omalu also discovered CTE in former pro wrestler Jon Rechner, who performed as Balls Mahoney, as well as early stages of the disease in Brian Knighton, aka Axl Rotten. Both wrestlers died within months of each other in early 2016 at the age of 44. The former tag team, named The Hardcore Chair Swingin Freaks, was best known for its run in Extreme Championship Wrestling, along with a brief stint in WWE.The diagnoses of Rechner and Knighton come at the same time that WWE faces a lawsuit filed by more than 50 former pro wrestlers who say the company is responsible for repeated head trauma that led to long-term neurological damage.Rechner, who was said to have experienced memory problems before he died of a heart attack in April, is the third professional wrestler who has been publicly identified with CTE and the first since 2009. Knighton was found dead in suburban Baltimore in February after a heroin overdose.Dr. Julia K. Kofler, a neuropathologist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian, conducted the autopsies on Parsons, Rechner and Knighton. The university is affiliated with Omalus charitable foundation, which he created in 2015 before the release of the movie Concussion, a dramatization of the NFLs resistance to his CTE research.As a scientist, a physical, and a person of faith, I bet everybody involved with these sports to come together and identify the problems and find solutions, said Omalu, who told The Globe he reviewed Koflers studies and endorsed her findings. Cullen Gillaspia Womens Jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. J.J. Watt Jersey . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Louisville coach Rick Pitino said the schools self-imposed sanctions are enough to satisfy the NCAA as the governing body continues investigating an escorts allegations that a former Cardinals staffer hired her and other dancers to entertain recruits and players.The school in February announced a postseason ban from the Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA tournaments after its investigation into Katina Powells allegations determined that violations did occur. Louisville imposed additional sanctions in April, reducing scholarships and recruiting visits and contacts by staff in 2016-17 and `17-18. Several investigations into the program continue, but Pitino says measures suggested by investigator Chuck Smrt should be enough.Chuck tells you, `OK, this is what I find you guilty of and this is what we must do, so he was the guy that told us what to do, it wasnt the school, Pitino said during a radio interview Tuesday on Louisvilles 840 WHAS.We have to rely on his (Smrts) expertise, so in his expertise and his feelings, weve done everything that we needed to do.Pitino expressed the same feelings about the schools actions in a podcast with College Hoops Today earlier this week.Powell alleged last October in the book Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen that former Cardinals mens basketball staffer Andre McGee paid her $10,000 for 22 shows from 2010-14 at the players Billy Minardi Hall dormitory. Pitino has deniied knowledge of the activities described in Powells book but has also seemed inclined to move on from the scandal, no matter what the NCAA investigation determines whenever it serves the school with a notice of allegations. Max Scharping Texans Jersey. Its just a matter of whats true, whats not true, Pitino said. Certainly, were guilty of certain things and thats why we took the penalty. We would not have taken the penalty if we didnt find ourselves guilty of those violations.Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich said last month that he didnt know when the NCAAs investigation might end. But the AD said the school is prepared to acknowledge mistakes and cited its previous measures as steps toward correcting them and moving forward.Pitino has expressed the same philosophy but didnt sound ready to let McGee off the hook. The coach said he hasnt spoken with his former player and staffer and isnt in a forgiving mood just yet.Do I still love him? Yes, I do, Pitino said. Do I forgive him? No, I dont, because in order to forgive someone, that person has to ask for forgiveness. Its no different from if I do something wrong that I ask for forgiveness and God willing, the people you hurt forgive you.When it comes the day that Andre wants to be forgiven for his deeds, hell ask for forgiveness and well certainly do that.
