Russian former UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov in the social network Instagram snapped on the assumption that martial arts classes have a negative impact on the health of man and his brain activity. As an example, he cited Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was engaged in Sambo and judo:
“Wrestlers are great people and we developed to diversify. I no the head does not beat never, nor in childhood, nor later. If you think so, then we have a broken head, it turns out, a lot of people. Then Putin with a broken head, and the Rotenberg brothers with a broken head?
They were engaged in the same struggle as I do. Why are you talking about them don’t say anything? Say, call it the same! And the love stamps to put”.
Oleg Taktarov in MMA has a record of 17-5-2, his career lasted from 1993 to 2008. He participated in the very first UFC show in 1995 and was even the winner of the UFC 6 tournament.
