The future of sports(concussion talk and such)

So, upon reading about the death of a former UFC fighter after a boxing match and realizing that we are very close to the 10 year anniversary of the Benoit double murder-suicide, I ask all of you, what do you see as the future of contact sports?

I feel like we’ll never fully move away from such things, and even relatively safe sports offer some degree of hazard. I believe that it is good and healthy for us to let our our competitive instincts in a safe, regulated way, but I have heard of so many horror stories in boxing and MMA where referees did not protect the participants that I wonder if they will fade into memory as banned sports.
