Fighters get 90 day plus suspensions

Phoenix Swooping says:

Medical researchers have found another big money public health issue and the ABC has found another opportunity to attack 'toxic' masculinity. Everyone is happy!

Every other clip was of men recieving hits to the head, that would imply to me at least concussion in sport is a predominantly male issue.
